AS DARK SKIES RALLY KIELDER
29th / 30th October 2022
JOIN THE 2022 DARK SKIES RALLY SERIES
The second edition of the Adventure Spec Dark Skies Rally Trophy will be held in Kielder Forest. Riders will have the option to enter in Rally or Adventure Class, and the results from both events will be combined for the final league table. Those who choose to ride in Rally Class will have tougher navigation, and a whole extra stage which will run into the night.
There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as roadbooking in the dark, so let’s go!
VENUE: KIELDER FOREST
The AS Dark Skies Rally Kielder is an Adventure Rally taking place over two days. Depending on the class you enter will depend on the level of challenge.
- Adventure Class

Saturday Course – 11am – 5pm & 6pm – 11pm – Night Stage
Sunday Course – 10am – 4pm
Harder terrain and tougher navigation plus the additional night stage.
(No restriction on bike size)
- Newcomer Class
A shortened version of the Adventure Class route, with some training on the Friday for those riders that want an introduction to roadbook rallying.
Please state the class you are entering on the entry form.
RallyMoto and Forestry England have worked together to create this special motorcycle event.
All riders will be tracked using RallyMoto’s precision GPS tracking system, firstly for safety, and secondly, for accuracy of navigation and adherence to speed limits on the roadbook.
Navigation of the course will be 100% roadbook with set places for checkpoints and scheduled breaks. The roadbook will be written in a more rally orientated style.
For 2022, camping will need to be booked directly with Brown Rigg Lodges.
PLEASE NOTE: The guest rooms and lodge accommodation at Brown Rigg Lodges has been reserved for Dark Skies Rally Kielder riders and crew.
If you search for Brown Rigg accommodation on the internet, the site shows “no accommodation available” – this is because RallyMoto has booked the entire venue for the event – CONTACT BROWN RIGG DIRECTLY – 01434 220390 or email [email protected]
Camping is also to be booked and paid, directly, with Brown Rigg and is NOT included in the entry fee for 2022. Food for Friday evening can also be booked here as well.
A bar will be available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening at the venue.
The Dark Skies Rally series will be run as a full competitive event with timed stages and penalty scoring system. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
All riders who complete the Adventure Rally will receive a Finishers Medal – and you do need to finish!
Event entries are limited to 120.
