Blackpool to Torquay
The 20th Anniversary of the Rally that is the ultimate test of both driving ability and endurance. If there was a choice of only ever doing one event again, many seasoned entrants would surely choose the beguiling and perennial RAC Rally of the Tests – The one they all want to win.
The anniversary edition will honour the traditions of the past in the greatest possible fashion, with the historic route of Blackpool to Torquay, beginning under the famous illuminations and ending on the English Riviera.
In between this, the rally will drive in the wheel tracks of past greats, scaling heights and standing on the shoulders of giants in Wales, including Epynt, and relishing in the challenges of the narrow roads of the South-West, as well as being stuffed full of challenging off-road tests.
There will be celebrations aplenty to mark the anniversary milestone, but the biggest tribute will come in the form of a route of the upmost integrity and a competition that is always undertaken in reverence to our traditions and will undoubtedly be fought hard.
