Further to our previous invitation, it is my pleasure to announce that Supplementary Regulations are now live and entries now open, for the 2017 Aquarius Navigational Rally and Aquarius Clubman Navigational Rally on the night of 4/5 February 2017, to which your members are warmly invited.
Regs and entry form are attached, and also available from our club website and online entries system, per the links below:
The rally will feature approx 118 miles – of which ~75% shall be competitive motoring – of the best lanes in Fife & Lowland Perthshire, starting and finishing in Kinross.
This year we continue to build on our well-received format of recent years of a “no nonsense” fully pre-plot “tulips and map refs” navigational format, with an all-tarmac route which enables standard unmodified road cars to compete. Improvements for this year include an even more compact route – all within a 13 mile radius of Kinross, inc. centralised start, refuel and finish locations, all within easy reach of the M90 motorway in Central Scotland – and timing schedule – with the first car due away at 21.21 and back at the finish at 02.01.
Through this, we aim to encourage those new to night events or to the area, whilst still providing experienced crews with a rewarding night’s sport (& a well-earned breakfast!). All for an entry fee of £75.
Marshals will also be made very welcome, and we’ll do our best to give you a great night’s sport. We offer a free breakfast for all marshals manning two controls, and you’ll also receive free Glenrothes MSC membership for 2017. If you would like to help out on the night, please contact Chief Marshal Richard Crozier at firstname.lastname@example.org
This year we shall again be the opening round of the 2017 SACC Navigational Rally Championship, and a round of the 2017 HRCR Premier Rally Championship. In addition to the National B event, we will again also be offering a supporting Clubman event, giving those without an MSA competition licence a chance to be part of the action.
We look forward to extending you a warm welcome to Kinross on 4th February!

JIM CLARK RALLY, WE WANT OUR CLOSED ROAD RALLY BACK.
TO: LORD ADVOCATE OF SCOTLAND
We would like the Lord Advocate to bring his inquiry regarding the fatalities on the 2014 event to a conclusion.
Why is this important?
THE JIM CLARK RALLY 2017: RETURN TO CLOSED ROADS
The Jim Clark Rally generates approximately £3.5 million for the Scottish Borders economy each year and has substantial support from Scottish Borders Council, politicians and the general public.
Following the fatal accident in 2014 the JCR has been unable to run on closed public roads due to an inquiry being carried out by the Lord Advocate of Scotland.
It is in the public interest that the rally return to running on closed public roads in 2017.
Two years with no conclusion has made it difficult to guarantee the future of one of the UK’s biggest sporting events.
Here is the latest SACC Newsletter and available on the link below, please share around anyone who may be interested!
