Croeso, Welcome to the Rallynuts Stages Rally 2019.
Midland Manor Motor Club welcomes you to the Rallynuts Stages Rally, voted best event in the Welsh Forest National Championship by the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs in 2018.
Last year we presented you with a new name, a new date and a return to the BTRDA Rally Championship.
This year we offer you a new route whilst retaining the unrivalled facilities of the Royal Welsh Showground at Builth Wells which will provide the usual venue for Rally HQ, Scrutineering, Attended Overnight Parking, Start / Finish, Service and Refuel area. For 2019 you will tackle stages in Hafren Forest followed by two stages in the Coed Sarnau complex (not used since the 1990’s); then midday service, before returning to Hafren for a sting in the tail. You will return to the Showground for the finish ceremony and a well-earned rest.
The experienced team offer you 6 stages totalling nearly 45 miles of competitive motoring of which 29 miles will be single use. Permission has been granted by Motorsport UK to place classes RF1.4, RF2.0, 1400C, 1400S and H1 and H2 at the front of the field and run in reverse seeded order, (slowest first); followed by the main field in seeded order based on anticipated performance.
The enthusiasm and commitment to rallying from joint Managing Directors Paul Bonas and Craig Cameron of Rallynuts Motorsport Ltd continues to drive this event forward and we look forward to working alongside them for many more years.
The rally continues to be a round of the prestigious 2019 Jordan Road Surfacing BTRDA Rally Series; the Pirelli Motorsport UK Welsh Stage Rally Championship 2019; The Brian Dennis Motorsport/ www.jelfmotorsport.com Welsh Historic Rally Championship 2019; The West Wales Rally Spares HRCR Stage Masters Challenge 2019; and the FMP Rally Challenge 2019.
Our aim is always to bring you a cost effective rally that uses some of the best forest tracks that mid-Wales can offer. The roads are in great condition with the Rallynuts Stages being the first event to use them in 2019.
For those who choose to travel to the event on the day, we are able, by prior arrangement, to provide you with scrutineering and documentation on the Saturday morning, although you will need to be signed on 30 minutes before your start time.
With support from Builth Wells Town Council, the Deputy Lord Mayor of Builth Wells will be flagging competitors away on Saturday morning.
We could not run this event without the support and help of every marshal and volunteer who generously give enormous amounts of time at no cost to the event. On behalf of the organising team, Rallynuts Motorsport Ltd and every competitor, we thank you.
All marshals registered with the Chief Marshal and who help us on the day will receive a lunch bag and a collectable rally mug.
We also thank those long standing businesses who have supported us over the years. A full list of acknowledgements can be found at the end of these supplementary regulations.
Finally, we very much look forward to seeing you all in Builth Wells in April and hope that you have a safe, memorable and enjoyable day’s rallying.
THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE
