ALRC National RTV – Help Needed

Notice to all EssexLRC competitive drivers and members regarding the National Rally RTV.

Following discussions with the National Rally organiser, and due to a very low entry number for the National Rally RTV, EssexLRC RTV drivers who had offered their assistance in setting and running the event are now free to enter and take part in the National Rally RTV. Entry booking closes Friday 6th May and you can FIND DETAILS HERE

The event camping starts on Wednesday 1st June. I still require the assistance of any non drivers and CCV or Tyro drivers to help setting out on Wednesday and Thursday, and Group Leading and marshalling and on the Saturday of the event. The CCV is run on the Friday, so the event organisers will be grateful if RTV drivers offer to marshal the CCV on Friday. If anyone who can assist on these days lets me know so I can plan the running of the event. Just fill in the form below.

Further to this, I had planned a visit to the site on the 14/15 May to recce the state of the site after the storms and work out where each section will be. I would be grateful of any assistance from NON-RTV entries that weekend. On site camping on the gallops will be available, you will need to be self sufficient. Please let me know if you can help out.
Once again, please use the form below to offer help.
