Aquarius Navigational Rally 2018 

On behalf of Glenrothes Motor Sport Club, it is our pleasure to invite you to the 2018 Aquarius Navigational Rally, on the night of 27th/28th January.

The rally will feature approx 110 miles of the finest lanes in Fife, on OS Map 59, based out of the historic county town of Cupar. With a "no nonsense" pre-plot navigational format, and a smooth-surface route designed to enable standard unmodified road cars to compete, we aim to encourage newcomers to night events, whilst still providing experienced crews with a rewarding night's sport (& a well-earned breakfast!).

After 5 years based in Kinross, 2018 sees the event "up sticks" to Cupar - the new base allowing us to explore many "new" roads, some of which not rallied for many years. We retain the popular "3/4-nighter" format we have pioneered in recent years, with FCD at the finish ~02.00 - reducing traffic, and offering a stern challenge to Scottish crews more accustomed to a pre-midnight finish, yet not making Sunday a complete write off, and finishing no later than a "night on the tiles"!

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, hand warmers, and you'll also receive free associate GMSC membership for 2018. If you would like to help out on the night, please contact Assistant Chief Marshal Bill Creevy at bill.creevy@glenrothes-msc.com

This year we shall again be the opening round of the Scottish Association of Car Clubs Navigational Rally Championship, and a round of the 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 Cupar on 27th January!

Kingdom Stage 2017 - Final Results 

Kingdom Stages 1997-2017 - News 

Update: Final Instructions, Road Map and the Schedule are now available. Please see Attachments below.

40 years ago the first Kingdom Stages was held, using farm roads around Fife. To celebrate this anniversary we have organised a new format for our event, running stages at both Crail and Leuchars.  It all takes place on Saturday 17th June 2017.

 

MARSHALS

Come and join us in this event, at either Crail or Leuchars, and play your part in an exciting day of motorsport.  Contact Stewart at marshal@paton-family.co.uk or 07704 440867 to register.  The first 100 marshals registered get a commemorative fleece, in addition to all marshals getting a hot lunch and goodie bags.  Please use the registration forms accessible from the navigation bar.

 

SET UP

We need lots of help getting the venues ready for this big event. If you are free to help in the previous weekend or in the week leading up, contact Robert at robert.ness@glenrothes-msc.com or via face book on Glenrothes Motor Sport ClubOfficial

 

COMPETITORS

We still have a few places available, regs are on this site and you can enter on https://rallies.info/webentry/2017/kingdom/  With the different format there’s a bit to know, so here goes….

The rally will start at Crail where competitors will do 2 stages.  There is then a short service then a road section to Leuchars.  There the competing cars will go straight to the arrival control of SS 3.  After SS 4 at Leuchars there is a longer service, and another short service after SS6.  The cars then return to Crail (again straight into arrival control) for SS7.  We hope to run 4 stages at Crail in the afternoon. 

Service therefore takes place at both venues, but the most time is at Leuchars.  Each crew will have 1 pass for a service vehicle. This pass has 2 functions; entering Leuchars and re-entering Crail.  Only vehicles with passes and competing vehicles are allowed at Leuchars.

Service crews travel a different route to the competing cars on the road sections.  There is no roadside service and no "emergency" service.  Judges of fact will be in operation.

Any vehicle arriving or returning to Crail after 08:30 will be charged entry unless it is a clearly marked competing car or vehicle carrying the official rally pass.

We can provide event insurance, please see details in the regs, this cannot be purchased on the day so if you need it please book in advance.

Unusually, we have a single venue permit for this event so younger navigators are allowed.

Scrutineering will be at Methil on Friday  c16:00 - 19:00, details in the finals.  As there is an early start on Saturday competitive crews are advised to get checked on Friday. 

Juniors:  No scrutineering or signing on, on Friday.  The Junior event is likely to start around 10.30 on Saturday, so scrutineering on the morning is fine.  However, note vehicles arriving after 08:30 will be charged entry, even competing crews.

Tyres: Andrew Wood and Wheels Around are both attending but both will be at Crail only.

 

SPECTATORS

Marshals get the best view but must register in advance.  See above for details.  Other spectators can watch at Crail, with entry charged per car.  Action starts at 8am and will be on all day.  Leuchars is a live base and therefore no spectators are permitted.

 

MEDIA

As usual this is by invitation only.

Update:

Senior's Online Entry Form:   https://rallies.info/webentry/2017/kingdom/

Junior's Online Entry Form:   https://rallies.info/webentry/2017/kingdomjunior/

 

Glenrothes MSC  are running the Kingdom Stages on Saturday June 17th, featuring a new format and a new date.

40 years ago Glenrothes MSC ran the Kingdom Stages Rally for the first time.  It started as a rally using farm roads, and developed over the years into a full forest rally and a round of the SRC.  This included famous stages such as Glendevon, Blairadam and Pitmedden. In recent years it has been the Club’s flagship event, operating at Crail as a tarmac rally and a round of the STRC.  

We have moved to June to allow us to offer stages at two venues - Crail and Leuchars - with a combined mileage of 80 miles.  There is therefore a road section included in the event, offering a unique rally and a challenge for all competitors.  The event is  a round of Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship, North of England Tarmacadam Championship, Border Challenge and 5 O Clubs Championship.

Kingdom Junior Stages Rally will run at Crail on the same day, a round of the Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge.

Please find regs attached to this site.   Entries for both rallies will go live at 19:00 on Sunday 14th May via a link on this site.  Follow updates on Facebook too, which will include spectator and marshal information.

MEMORIAL GARDEN STAGES RALLY 

Glenrothes MSC are pleased to report that that the Memorial Garden Stages at Condor (Arbroath) will definitely run, on Saturday 15th April 2017.  We are a bit light on entries so we have extended the closing date to next week.  If you thought it was a wee bit rough last year, you will be pleased to know we have been on site making repairs, and our chums at Beatsons have 10 tonne of concrete coming to site. We have also amended the routes to avoid the nasty bits.
 
It's £225 for 51 miles, entries at www.rallies.info/webentry/2017/garden/ and regs at www.glenrothes-msc.com.  Ignore the closing date on the regs.
 
Competitor queries to treasurer@glenrothes-msc.com
Marshal offers to s-millar@hotmail.co.uk
 
Please remember this is a no spectator event, so you must be attached to a rally crew or a marshal to get in the gate.
 
And just to repeat it is 100% confirmed we are running.
