The number of confirmed entries for the 2019 Roger Albert Clark Rally has now gone past the 100-mark as the next entry deadline approaches on April 30th.
A record-breaking total of 193 deposits have been lodged for the 21-25 November event and prospective competitors are now required to pay a further amount of £500 and complete the entry form in order to retain their place on the list.
To date, 101 crews have completed this next stage in the process and a further 79 crews are now being urged to meet the April 30th deadline. To date, 13 deposits have been withdrawn and so the entry list now stands at 164 reserved places and 16 reserves. Any crew that does not meet the deadline may lose its confirmed place to one of the reserves.
Rally manager Colin Heppenstall, from the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club, said: “Anyone who has paid the £300 deposit but now no longer wishes to go ahead with an entry will receive a full refund once they advise us accordingly. If anyone is planning to withdraw their deposit, we are keen to hear from them.
“We also want to remind everyone that April 30th is a key date and to retain their place, crews need to pay a further £500 and complete the entry form. We will re-work the entry list on 1 May to reflect the current situation. We are very grateful to everyone for their interest and support for the rally: the response to the event is beyond our wildest expectations!”
