2017 Inter Association Road Rally
We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Inter-Association Road Rally will be the Mercian Road Rally on the night of 16th/17th September 2017 hosted by Mercia Motorsports on behalf of the East Midlands Association of Motor Clubs and to extend an invitation to your Regional Association.

As the only road rally in the UK with entries open to members of clubs from all 13 Regional Associations, we look forward to welcoming teams of road rally crews from as many regions as possible to share the enjoyment of our favourite local roads and compete to be the winning association team. A route of approximately 150 miles is planned which will feature the very best lanes and unsurfaced tracks of Maps 151/152 together with flowing Special Tests.  

Navigation will be very straightforward using almost entirely tulips with just the occasional map reference to localise some Not as Map features. Although provided as plot-and-bash handouts at various points along the route, it has been designed to be as easy as possible to plot on the move and often allowing several sections to be plotted ahead. The event format has proven popular with both experts and novices alike and crews with only a pre-plot background have adapted very successfully in previous years.  

Although the Inter-Association Road Rally Challenge has run almost continuously since 1989, it is fair to say that several times in recent years it has been less well supported and passed almost unnoticed. We aim to reverse that trend and hope that your association will do its utmost to encourage and support a team of 3 crews from your region to enter. With this in mind, we have increased our usual maximum entry size and will reserve the major proportion of early places for Inter-Association entrants.  

Based in the Midlands, the event is conveniently located for travel by motorway from many regions and with reasonably priced accommodation available near the start and finish town of Southam in Warwickshire. A significant part of the proceeds of the event is donated each year to the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance Service. Event regulations are expected to be available from July via the event website and our Facebook page. Information on the Inter-Association Road Rally Challenge please contact:

The MSA latest announcement/news that you can individully sign up to receive advance notice of their new Motorsport Proposals
MSA Consultation Alerts - Before (most) MSA rules are changed in “The Blue Book” there is a period of consultation where interested parties can comment on any new proposals. In the past the only way to know that rule changes are proposed is by reading about them in MSA Newsletters or on the MSA website. There is now a service where anyone can register with the MSA to get an e-mail alert when a proposal to change a rule is made, giving  them plenty of time to comment on the proposal. You can sign up for alerts that concern one or as many disciplines as you like. It is very simple and only takes a few moments. I’m sure that many will find it useful and the system will help us all get the rules we need. To sign up visit this link:
