On Thursday 9 November, the annual RAC Rally of the Tests competition got underway, leaving the start line in Chester, and concluding in Darlington, Harrogate, on Sunday 12 November.
Following its inception in 1932, when it was originally named the RAC Rally & Coachwork Competition, the event was to become one of the toughest and challenging events worldwide. During its first year, no fewer than 341 competitors left the start line, while tackling a route of 1000 miles.
Renamed the RAC International Rally of Great Britain 1951, the event featured a more demanding format with additional emphasis on driving tests and navigational challenges, which remain a crucial element in the RAC Rally of the Tests competition, today run in association with HERO Events.
This year, the event began in Chester on Thursday 9 November and ended four days later in Harrogate on Sunday 12, with a total of 95 entries taking up the challenge, including a number of Club members.
