Hi,

Just to keep you up to date with a pre-announcement:

Mull Car Club Ltd (in association with Saltire Rally Club) are intending on putting on a dual permit multi-venue Targa Road Rally & Historic Road Rally as part of the replacement for the cancelled Mull Rally. The Route and Permit applications have been submitted this week, it’s all been a mad rush since our stage rally was cancelled, but we are getting there.

Full announcement and regs/entries should be out by the end of August.

Outline details:

Daytime route, mid-morning Start in Tobermory
Approx. 95 miles total / 17 of which are private and are mainly gravel
Approx. 14-16 tests and 4 Regularities
Last Car finishes approx. 6pm in Tobermory (plenty time to leave on the last ferry*)

*while we really would love everyone to stay on the island as long as possible, we also wish to make the event as accessible as possible to those who are time-limited. There are 3 ferry sailings to Mull on Friday morning which allow crews to make the start, and one late night sailing which allows crew to leave afterwards.  Check www.calmac.co.uk for timetables and bookings.

There will also be a Gravel Rally Time Trial on Saturday 14th Oct for those with Stage-prepared cars, and some social events.
