“Welcome to the 39th VK Derbyshire Rally, which again will receive the enthusiastic support of former National Rally Champion Steve Perez and his company GBL International Ltd. We look forward to meeting all our “regulars” again this year and we especially welcome any newcomers to this long-established Derbyshire classic.
The “VK” is always an extremely popular event and working on the principle of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” this year’s event will offer a very similar format to previous events. A competitive route with several sections timed to the second, straightforward navigation and the usual smattering of sensible “whites”.
In previous years the rally has raised substantial amounts to local charities such as the Ashgate Hospice, “A Pool for Megan” and the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. We are repeating this venture this year and again it will be in aid of the Air Ambulance. Please try to make a contribution to this very worthy cause – you never know when any of us may need them! Either include a donation with your entry or use the collection buckets on the night of the rally. Thank you.
Finally, as this event is usually oversubscribed we would strongly encourage you to send off your entry early to avoid disappointment!
Good luck and have fun!
Also without the following the event would not be possible, so our thanks to…
