“A warm welcome to Matlock Motor Club’s 2015 Dansport Road Rally. Our sincere thanks go to Dan and his team for their continued sponsorship ofthe event.
This year we have the excellent new start and finish venue at Bakewell Showground, and a new 1.5 mile Special Test. Bakewell Showground will be the location for trailer parking, noise, scrutineering, and signing-on – and of course breakfast!
We have a challenging 140 mile route, 12 of which are on unsurfaced whites, using new and familiar lanes in Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire which should provide an enjoyable yet demanding route with no-nonsense navigation.
Once again, the event is the final round of the EMAMC, ANEMMC, ANWCC, and ANCC championships and the penultimate round of the SD34 and HRCR Premier championships, so there should be much to play for.
We would like you to bring as many marshals as possible and, to assist us with giving you the best possible event, we will give cash back to any crew at £5 per control manned. We will require their contact details at least one week before the event (details to the Entries Sec) and, of course, for them turn up and do their business – a Marshal can only represent one crew per control manned, and the organisers’ decision regarding the qualification for this credit will be final.
Following our success in previous years in raising substantial funds for local charities we are operating a similar venture on this year’s event. The chosen charity will again be the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance – do please try to make a contribution to this worthy cause, either by a donation with your entry or the collection boxes at the start.
Matlock MC will also be donating £5 to the DLRAA for each entry.
See you all at the new start venue, Bakewell Showground, on 7th November.”
