The first round of the 2019 Scottish Navigational Rally Championship (SNRC) is due to take place on the evening of 9th March 2019. The Gropers Rally, run by Stonehaven & District Motor Club, starts just north of Stonehaven and follows a 99 mile route to finish at Arbuthnott Village Hall, on the B697, to the east of A90 near Fordoun. Regulations for both the Championship and the Gropers Rally, AND NOW also the second round, Saltire Rally Club Moonless Rally, can be found on the SAMSC website:Navi Rally page
In previous years the SNRC competitors had to buy a National B competition licence, and rounds of the Championship had to run as National B events. However this year and next year the Motorsport UK are running a trial period allowing competitors to compete in the Championship with just SAMSC registered clubs’ membership cards and for events running as Clubman status to be included in the Championship. This move is designed to encourage newcomers into the sport and to encourage those who might have previously only competed in their own club’s events to participate in a wider championship.
This year the Championship includes 6 rounds ranging geographically from the Highlands to Perthshire. Not as wide a spread of events as the organisers would wish and they would be prepared to consider the inclusion of other events Central belt or south, if clubs came forward with events for consideration.
