Leeds to Edinburgh
The 2020 edition of The RAC Rally of the Tests will see our Testers travel from Leeds to Edinburgh. Featuring the usual mix of Tests and Regularities, crews will be tested on plotting, map reading skills and the drivers on the wide variety of Tests planned.
As with all previous editions, the route will tax the best crews but will offer the opportunity for less experienced crews to battle against those at the top of their game. This year we have listened to comments and feedback from last year and the plotting and navigation whilst tough will be fair and in some instances less complex… but rest assured it will be no walk in the park!
We have a number of Test venues and private land sections to entice and excite all crews whatever your experience and the plotting will be similar to previous years with handouts throughout the event, all of which can either be plotted whilst at hotels or halts and those that are handed out on the hoof, so to speak, will require no plotting.
(Plus 30 mile prologue)

The prologue will take in a short but compact route giving the crews a taster of what to expect over the next 3 days.
Leg one will see our Testers covering some well rallied areas in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The usual tests, twists and turns will be on offer at venues not used for a number of years, as well as some old favourites before the overnight halt in the Lancaster/Preston area.
The second leg of the event will take crews back across the Pennines and then north to Newcastle, once again revisiting some old haunts as well as new venues which the route designers have sniffed out to keep both crew members on their toes.
The final Leg of the 19th RAC Rally of the Tests will see crews head north through the rallying heartlands of Kielder and the Borders before arrival at Edinburgh for the finish.
