In The Spotlight.....Rally X Regionals

8th Rally X

Here we take a look at whats on in your area in 2018.

With the BRCA RallyCross nationals dates out the “regionals” have now released the information on the Summer 2018 series. Although the “regionals” are not BRCA sanctioned, they are very well attended and spread out over the UK, making them ideal for people that want to try something different to the local club, but are not quite ready for National events. There are four regional series and most cater for a couple of different classes, sometimes Truggy and often 1/8th E Buggy. Some have practice and race day weekends, and some are two day events and all are competitive but fun series but with a defined structure and end of season trophies.

1st up is the SWORDS….

The SWORDS or “South West Off Road Division Series”and is based in the South West of the UK, and is a very popular and friendly series but also very competitive. The website has lots of useful information on the clubs and all the booking in information etc. The website can be found here…..
