RAC Rally of the Tests 2023

Scunthorpe to Darlington


21st Edition

2 - 5 November

The 21st edition sees the Rally move into a new era as after 10 years Clerk of the Course Guy Woodcock is passing the mantle to a new team of George Mullins, Andy Pullan and Seren Whyte to continue to deliver what 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 21st edition will honour the traditions of the past in the greatest possible fashion, with the team looking at new and old favourites for the route. Starting just south of the Humber near Scunthorpe and the event finishing near to Darlington, the rally will drive in the wheel tracks of past greats, scaling heights and standing on the shoulders of giants in Yorkshire and the North East plus venturing into new territory for the testers to enjoy. There will be challenges aplenty from the new team, but the biggest tribute will come in the form of a new route and areas and a competition that is always undertaken in reverence to our traditions and will undoubtedly be fought hard.
