AS DARK SKIES RALLY WALES

6TH / 7TH AUGUST 2022

JOIN THE 2022 DARK SKIES RALLY TROPHY SERIES 

Due to popular demand we are excited to announce we will be running two editions of the Dark Skies Rally to make up the THE DARK SKIES RALLY TROPHY.  The first round will be run in Wales, the second in Kielder Forest.  Riders will have the option to enter in Rally Class, Adventure Class and a Newcomers Class.

The results from Rally Class from the Wales and Kielder events will be combined for the final league table to give a winner and roadbook rally “supremo”.  Those who choose to ride in Rally Class will have tougher navigation, and a whole extra stage which will run through the night.
There’s nothing quite as exhilarating as roadbook rallying in the dark, so let’s go!

The Adventure class will be run along the same lines as the “500” events and will not include a night stage. This is still a challenge for the “Big Bikes” with two long days in the saddle.

All classes will now include a DIGITAL ROADBOOK option using the RallyMoto app.

The “Newcomers Class is new for this event and will be run over a course that is easier terrain and shorter distances, with training from the RallyMoto Team available on the Friday prior to the event if required.
