The XPart Rally is a day/night endurance road rally for lightly modified two-wheel drive cars limited to 1400cc petrol and 2000cc diesel non-turbo engines, built to the Endurance Road Rally formula. This event will be run in support of Help For Heroes; last year CMC events raised over £3000 for charity.
Starting mid morning on Saturday 16th February 2013, the route will be centred around Bury St Edmunds, with over 120 miles of selectifs at various venues in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and Essex.
The day leg start will be from the Ramada Hotel, Bury St Edmunds, including breaks for lunch and tea followed by a supper halt at The Rushbrooke Arms, Sicklesmere. The supper halt is included in the entry fee. The day leg is approximately 260 miles with approximately 100 miles of selectifs.
The night leg will be approximately 90 miles including 20 miles of selectifs and approximately 20 miles of simple navigation on tarmac lanes (full night leg road book issued at supper).
The event will finish with an awards presentation at the Ramada Hotel, Bury St Edmunds. A special rate has been negotiated with the hotel for those crews who wish to stay Friday 15th / Saturday 16th and/or join the organisers in the bar after the event.
The route instructions will be straightforward. Similar to last year, tulip road books and marked maps will be provided and complemented with detailed selectif diagrams to ensure that crews of all abilities can complete the rally.
Chelmsford Motor Club, which celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2006, is noted for its high-quality and popular events organised by experienced competitors – winning the 2009 MSA / JLT Sport Club of the Year award. The club’s results service using Liege timers and chips is one of the best in the country.
As usual, Andy Manston from M&H Photography will be covering the rally and this year the entry fee includes two presentation prints.
As an incentive to marshals we have £100 cash prize draw and a free supper for those marshalling both legs of the event.
