“Welcome to the second Ross Endurance Road Rally, where we hope to build on our last year’s successful first event in this discipline. There will be fewer selectifs than last year, but more selectif mileage. There will be a short daytime jogularity style regularity, and there will also be a pre-plot competitive night section in Wales. There is no spotlight ban in Wales!
The total route will be about 260 miles. There are about 45 miles of selectifs with about 145 miles on public roads to link them, leading you to a supper halt (the cost of supper is included in the entry fee). There will then be about 70 miles of night route (55 competitive) leading back to our own Clubhouse in Ross-on-Wye town centre where the bar will be open while the results are being calculated.
The Saturday morning start (Sound, Scrutineering and Documentation) will be at the Ross Auction Centre, where breakfast will also be available. There will be a morning group of selectifs at four venues including Bishopswood with some fabulous new mileage. The lunch break will be close to Ross, before the second group of selectifs at two venues in the Hereford area (Bowley Court and Whitfield) will take you to the evening rest halt (different venue, but the same caterer as last year) and a chance to refettle the cars and to give sustenance to the crews. The night route will be in a pre-plot (map reference) format, with plenty of time for plotting (approximately 60 MR’s in 45 mins).
Regular updates will be available on our Club website, and an updated entry list will be available there from mid March. www.rossmotorsports.co.uk
