Jogularity Rally

Jogularity Rally

The Summer Jogularity is a perfect beginners event to learn the basics of navigation and competive timing. Taking place on a Sunday afternoon and run at speeds between 15 and 30mph the trick is to arrive on time; for lateness or early arrival you will collect penalties which will decide the winner.

You will be issued with route instructions in a road book complete with marked maps in case you get lost, giving you inter and total mileages, in line with your normal speedometer in your car (no trip meter required) landmark and/or junctions and information, plus the time you should arrive at that point.

The complete route will be timed at average speeds from 15mph to 30 mph. The idea is to encourage Bath and neighbouring club members to use any form of transport to have a go. This is simple straightforward navigation, easy to achieve average speeds with the need to concentrate and follow the correct route.

If you have any questions please contact Dave Whittock on whittock at talktalk.net

Bath Motor Club welcomes you to take part in their Rally Preparation Services Autocross, a new edition to the 2019 ASWMC 1st Choice Finishes Autocross Championship.

We have secured a large field adjoining the old airfield at Long Newnton, Near Tetbury, a first for this venue to hold an Autocross. It’s large enough for us to run a demanding yet fast 1300 metre course.

If you’ve never tried Autocross and wonder what it’s about - Have a look at our FAQs

Bath Motor Club has a distinguished history with AutoCross back to the early 70's with luminaries such as Peter Gould (Mini) Peter Maslen (Mini) and Roger Brunt (mini) leading the charge.

Further stories from the club's AutoCross history are available HERE.

Mendip Meander - on the day 019 (1024x768).jpg

Mendip Meander 6-  Sunday May 19th 2019

Start: TBC

Finish: TBC

Entry Fee: £8

Entry by contacting Geoff Sutton on gsu180 at hotmail.co.uk

Make a note in your diary to join us for the sixth Mendip Meander which will be run in the afternoon of the date above. The first five were well received and proved to be fun social events for those taking part.

The format will take crews around the countryside on an unhurried, untimed drive to areas that they might otherwise not visit.

The route to be followed is described in a straightforward form - mainly by tulip (junction) diagrams. To provide a competitive element crews are required to look out for certain features along the way which relate to the list of questions given at the start. The crew able to interpret the clues and answer the most correctly will be deemed the winners.

The event is classed as a treasure hunt so no special vehicle insurance is required but entrants should make sure that they are covered by their own policy for this type of (non speed) event.

Crews may leave the start at any time between 2pm and 3pm. The total length of the drive will be about 20/25 miles and should take a couple of hours .

As mentioned above this is not a high speed competitive event but rather one for the family to join in with. Husbands, wives, partners, offspring, friends etc. are all welcome.   The entry fee will be £8 per car to cover paperwork, prizes,  permit fees etc. Details of how to enter are given below. Look out for updates in future issues of  “News and Forthcoming Events” emails

Festival Targa Rally

Entries are now open for the 2019 Festival Targa Rally.

Following last year’s success we have maintained a large element of the route in darkness and finished a bit earlier. We have maintained around 36 miles of tests and given you the opportunity to re-group and re-fuel on two occasions.

The event is a round of the ASWMC Targa Championship of which competitors must enter in the National B class to be eligible for points.

Again we will supply you a road book and a coloured marked map showing you all information. As we are running some of the event in the dark we do put more emphasis on passage and route checks rather than cone manoeuvres. It is fairer on you and the marshals.

Hope you can join us, bring your lights and sense of humour.

The event will need marshals, please sign up early for the best jobs. Contact Mike Patton on 07837 618670.
