Event Address

Use the Yellow Gate entrance which is clearly sign posted when you approach the show ground. Rally HQ and camping will be clearly signposted from Yellow Gate.

Signing on procedure

Signing on will be in the main Rally HQ building, which will be signposted in the Show Ground.

Before approaching the desk and signing on please look for your rider number on the boards. Once you have your rider number go to the correct desk for your number.

At signing on you will sign the form and if necessary show your ACU Competitor Licence. If you do not have an ACU Competitor Licence (this is not your RallyMoto membership card), you should have purchased a one off “Day / Event Licence”. If you have not purchased this in advance you will have to purchase a “Day / Event Licence (£15) before being allowed to take part in the event.

Any rider who cannot show their ACU Competition Licence will also have to purchase a one off “Day / Event Licence”

You will also receive:

  • Rider number – attach this the front of your bike
  • Wristband for your meals
  • Wristband for your guests meals (if ordered)
  • Day 1 Roadbook

Hire Roadbook Holder

These will be available if you ordered one at signing on. All hire roadbook holders are serial numbered and the hire unit will be logged against your rider number.

Please note: Failure to return the hire roadbook holder will result in a £100 invoice.

Please see the links in the email for fitting the roadbook holder and if you think you will have a problem fitting a standard hire roadbook holder to your bike please let me know by email ( as we have some options available.

Start and riding together

Riders will be started in groups of 4 per minute. Check the board for your start time – it will be next to your number on the information boards.

Should you wish to ride in a group with other riders please let me know and I will try to facilitate this. If you want to ride with a rider who has a different start time – just wait at a convenient point on the route after the start and wait for them.
