THE 2020 WELSH NATIONAL RALLY Welcome to the 2020 Welsh national Rally. The object of this rally is to complete various stages, collecting answers to clues on your travels. These answers decide the winners of various individual awards.
Note: It is your responsibility to ensure your machine complies with current Road Traffic Act Statutory legislation with regards to roadworthiness and insurance cover.
The Welsh National Rally is classed as a “navigational scatter rally”.
Insurance (The ACU Road Traffic Act insurance scheme for participants): Very important – You should check that your motorcycle insurance covers you for this event. Although this event is not a race and speed plays no part, some insurance companies refuse cover because you are taking part in a “rally”. You are therefore strongly advised to check with your insurer before taking part.
If your insurer cannot provide cover, we can help. The ACU will protect you against claims from third parties following accidents during the rally. It provides you with insurance cover as required by the Road Traffic Acts for the duration of the event. (Sign on time to sign off time.) However, PLEASE NOTE: this cover will not apply for provisional licence holders, therefore we can only accept entrants with a Full Licence for the registered vehicle.
The ACU have now provided a policy giving blanket coverage for riders with a Full Licence for third party RTA insurance for events which include the use of the public highway. This cover is automatically in place once the rider/passengers have signed on at the start of the event and is provided at no extra cost.
The clues will be issued at signing on/Start at WELSHPOOL LIVESTOCK MARKET, SY21 8SR The finish will be at WELSHPOOL LIVESTOCK MARKET, SY21 8SR
The event is open to all riders/drivers of moped, scooters, motorcycles, quads, motorcycle combinations and three wheeled vehicles. Competition licences are not required and ACU membership will be granted to all riders and passengers for the duration of the Welsh National Rally..
The entry fee is £25 per rider/driver. Passengers may be carried but will only qualify for an award if they are included on the entry form and an additional fee of £10 per passenger has been paid. Passengers must be a minimum age of 16 years.
The closing date for entries will be on Friday 17th April 2020. After the closing date, no refunds will be issued. Late entries may be accepted after the closing date, at the discretion of the Entry Secretary.
The following rules will apply: 1. There will be no performance tests on the public highway. 2. There will be no specific route. 3. Entrants will not be timed or required to visit the same place more than once. 4. No merit will be attached to completing the event with the lowest mileage in the shortest time.
