RAC Rally of the Tests 2019
- November 6, 2019
- Posted by Georgios Ketsatis
The event will feature the usual mix of Tests and Regularities with crews being tested on plotting, map reading skills and the drivers on the wide variety of Tests planned. As with all the previous editions, the route will tax the best crews but will offer the opportunity for less experienced crews to battle against those at the top of their game. Heroevents have listened to the comments and feedback from the 2018 event with regards to the plotting and navigation. Whilst remaining tough, it will be fair and in some instances less complex, but rest assured it will be no walk in the park.
They have a number of Tests venues and private land sections to entice and excite all crews whatever your experience. The plotting will be similar to previous years with handouts throughout the event, all of which can either be plotted whilst at hotels or halts and those that are handed out as crews leave main time controls will require no plotting.
Here some Event characteristics:
7 November: Prologue – Torquay. Torquay to Torquay. The Prologue is short but taxing enough to allow us to ’seed‘ the crews for the next three days of Competition
8 November: Day 1 – West Country. Torquay to Bristol. The overnight halt will be in Bristol after a day in the West Country taking in some of the Testers favorite venues and hopefully some new and exciting Tests.
9 November: Day 2 – South Wales and The Midlands. Bristol to Stoke. The restart on Saturday morning will be at the iconic RAC building next to the M5 prior to crossing into Wales and then skirting the border before we arrive in Stoke after a challenging days sport culminating in a section around the Rally of the Tests favorite venues.
10 November: Day 3 – North Wales. Stoke to Chester. The final day sees the crews head west and back into Wales with a mixture of Tests and Regularities before the finish in the City of Chester.
