Armstrong Massey Wolds Historic Rally 2011 Regulations
Welcome to the 2011 ARMSTRONG MASSEY WOLDS HISTORIC RALLY.
We are grateful to Armstrong Massey, York, for continuing to sponsor our event.
The event will contain a mixture of tests all on private land and regularity sections timed to the second.
Beverley & District Motor Club Ltd. would like to thank the following:
The Beverley & District Motor Club web-site at www.bdmc.org.uk is the primary source for information about this event. It holds definitive versions of all official documentation issued before the event, as well as results.
The website is also the most popular way to enter the event, and as before allows you to pay the entry fee online using a Credit or Debit card via Paypal.
There will also be an un-seeded entry list published as entries are received and a seeded list once the entries have been seeded.
Results will also be posted on the web site during the event, and at the end, usually within a few minutes of the time cards being collected. This will allow family and friends to be able to see how you're doing during the day.
Beverley & District Motor Club Ltd. will promote a Clubman Historic Road Rally, the Armstrong Massey Wolds Historic Rally, on Sunday 27th March 2020.
The event will be held under the general regulations of the MSA (incorporating the provisions of the International Sporting code of the FISA), these supplementary regulations and any written instructions the promoting club may issue for the event.
MSA Permit number 61349 has been issued. Authorisation of a Motoring Event on the Public Highway will be posted on the official notice board. This official notice board will be on display at the start and the finish venue in Driffield Rugby Club.
The event is open to fully elected members of the Beverley and District Motor Club, and any of the following clubs, Aberdeen and District MC, Berwick & DMC, Border Ecosse CC, Durham AC, Hawick & Borders CC, Hexham & DMC, Ilkley & DMC, Kirkby Lonsdale MC, Morecombe CC, Saltire Rally Club, Stockton & DMC, Wigton MC, Whickham & DMC, Whitby & DMC and York MC. All entrants must produce a valid Club Membership Card for inspection when signing on.
Competition Licences are not required for this event.
The results will be included in the NESCRO Winter Challenge series for 2011.
Drivers must ensure that they have Third Party insurance for the event. See ASR 22 for further details. Cars must also be taxed where applicable. Cars will be identified by numbers, fixed to each side of the vehicle, to be supplied by the organisers. These must be removed or covered after retirement from or at the conclusion of the event.
Noise tests will commence at 08:30 prior to Scrutineering at Driffield Airfield (map reference 106/001560½, nearest Post Code YO25 9LH) and then documentation. All competitors must be signed on by 09:30. Any competitor not signed on by this time may be excluded. The first car will start from MTC1 at 10:00 with subsequent cars at one-minute intervals. The total mileage will be approximately 60 miles on public roads. We will provide a marked map showing the route of the regularities, but if you want to use your own map then OS 1:50000 map 106 will be required.
The finish will be at Driffield Rugby Club (Map Reference 106/015561½, Post Code YO25 9DW) where an evening meal will be provided. These are included in your entry fee and are available by producing a ticket, which will be given out at documentation.
The route will be defined by a Road Book which will give competitors comprehensive information to follow the intended route. This may include pre printed ordnance survey maps which will show the intended route of the regularity sections. Tests may not be walked prior to your commencement of the test; a penalty of a test maximum will be applied per test walked.
