The Mornish Rally Time Trial is definitely going ahead as planned on Sunday 14th October!
We know there are a few entries still in the pipeline, and so we are extending the closure until 9pm on Wednesday 10th October.
We are trying to be as accommodating as possible for those coming from the mainland, so the schedule allows for travel on the first ferry over from Oban and returning on the last ferry back for anyone who is unable to stay over.
Don’t leave it any later! Submit your entry here.

Don’t miss the Mull Rally after party!
Firstly, thank you to all the supporters of the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally for your patience over the months since last year’s successful Targa Rally and Time Trial. We haven’t just been sitting on our bottoms in that period, lots of work has been taking place in the background. As you can imagine much of these discussions are not the most exciting thing to be talking about; permits, insurances, Road Traffic Act for example and are not really the type of things to be sharing openly whilst discussions are still on going.
We can now confirm that we are in discussions with Saltire Car Club about running another Targa Rally. This would be planned for the weekend of 13 – 14 October 2018. Plans are in their infancy for the Targa as well as the hopes to run a Time Trial. More details will come out over the next month or two.
So, what about the rally? As you may have seen from the release earlier from the MSA, the Scottish Government are starting the consultation process with the objective to secure closed road legislation for the whole country. There is a lot of work to be done to secure this and it is not the work of a moment. But maybe, just maybe we may have special stages around the perimeter roads of the Isle of Mull in the near future…fingers crossed.
The Guardians of Mull Rally and the Mull Car Club are still in talks with the MSA and Scottish Government to try and resolve the insurance issues over this years event. Further meetings are taking place over the next two weeks. We will make an announcement as soon as we possibly can as to whether the event can run this year.
