Entries are now open for the Nicky Grist Stages 9-10 July – with the official event regulations and entry forms on-line at http://www.nickygriststages.co.uk.
This year celebrates the 36th running of Quinton Motor Club’s forest stage rally, the 29th consecutive year of it hosting a round of the BTRDA Rally Series, the sixth year of title sponsorship from Nicky Grist Motorsports and its maiden appearance as a round of the MSA British Rally Championship.
The big change for 2016 is that the event is actually two rallies – a one day gravel event in the forests on the Carmarthenshire and Powys border on Saturday 9 July for competitors in the Ravenol BTRDA Rally Series, Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest Rally Championship, HRCR Stage Masters Challenge, ANWCC Forest Rally Championship, ANWCC Historic Stage Rally Championship and FMP Rally Challenge, and a two day mixed-surface event for crews contesting the MSA British Rally Championship – with the second day on Sunday 10 July run exclusively on Tarmac over the fantastic Epynt military ranges.
Crews registered for the aforementioned championships are able to enter the Nicky Grist Stages now, thus confirming their place on the starting list.
Non-championship registered crews will be able to enter from 13 June. The closing date for entries is 5 July and the maximum number of entries is 180.
The route for the 2016 Wales Rally GB 27-30 October will be announced on Wednesday, with advance tickets going on sale the same day.
Spectators can pre-register their interest before 31 May to be entered into an exclusive prize draw to win a pair of tickets to the pre-event Preview Day plus a money-can’t-buy passenger ride in a rally car with a top driver.
