Many thanks to Rhian Owen Jones and Duncan Littler for the photos in the gallery. Unfortunately, the foggy conditions made it very difficult out on the route and the quality is not what Duncan would normally hope for.

Information -

This is our grass roots event planned as an introduction to road rallies, keeping the route, controls, plotting and timing as simple as possible. For Clerks of the Course Deio Hughes and Will Hughes this is the first time they have taken on the role on a road rally and they are supported by the event’s previous Clerk of the Course, Paul Morris.
We are extremely pleased to have Barnes Auto Engineering associated with the event once again and are very grateful to Lee Barnes for his enthusiastic support.

Whilst the event is open to all, priority is given to Novice and Beginner crews and those entering in the Expert class will initially be placed on a reserve list and will be allocated places, if available, on a ‘first paid’ basis after the closing date for entries.
The route over the lanes of Ordnance Survey Map 114 (Anglesey) is approximately 70 miles and 98% tarmac, but sump-guards are recommended for that unexpected rock in the road. Tyre choice is up to individuals but, as this event is in Wales, there is a requirement to only use E-marked tyres.

To ensure the smooth running of this event all competitors MUST supply a marshal.
The start and finish will be at Cartio Môn Go Kart Track, Bodedern with srutineering at Kingsland Garage Holyhead.

Competitors should please read the Supplementary Regulations before submitting an entry.

CLASSES - Prospective competitors should take special note of the definitions of the classes in Supplementary Regulation 7 as both driver and navigator are required to declare their class before the entry form can be submitted.
Where a crew is made up of persons from different classes, they must enter the higher-ranking class. For example: A driver who has won a rally can take part with a navigator from any class other than Expert but must enter the Expert class. Crews consisting of two Experts cannot enter the event.

INSURANCE -Drivers wishing to use the Jelf Insurance Scheme should ensure that they comply with the requirements listed in Supplementary Regulation 18, especially if you are under 20 years of age. If necessary, you should complete a Driver Declaration form to apply for a Letter of Acceptance.

UNDER 18 - A marshal or competitor who is under 18 years of age must have a parent, guardian or guarantor present at signing-on to sign consent. If a parent, guardian or guarantor is not present, an authorised representative must produce a complete Motorsport UK Parental Consent Authorisation form in order to sign on behalf of the parent, guardian or guarantor. The appropriate form is available here: Parental Consent Authorisation form.

CLUB MEMBERSHIP - Competitors must be paid-up members of C&A Motor Club to compete on this event. Membership may be applied for at signing-on and application forms can be found here: Become A Member.


As all communication will be made by email to the nominated driver or navigator on the entry form, please ensure your e-mail address is accurate and very clear.
Supplementary Regulations are available here: 2109 Valentine Regulations
Entries should be made using the online form and methods of payment are listed Supplementary Regulation 8. You have the option to pay by PayPal or Credit Card on completion of the form. The entry form is available here: 2019 Valentine Entry Form
