ABOUT

ABOUT

Welcome to the web pages of the Northumberland Borders Rally, a unique, one day, navigational rally for classic Mini saloons, organised by the Newcastle & Durham Region of the Mini Cooper Register

The 'Borders' consists of Special Tests during the day and a 'half night' navigational rally.  Road book type navigation is used for the tests and plot & bash handouts for the leg after dark, with varying levels of difficulty depending on previous rallying experience.   

As the name suggests, the rally is based in the fabulous rallying territory of Northumberland, but it also regularly takes in other areas including the remoter parts of County Durham and Cumbria.

The event is open to members of the MCR and those of invited Motorsport UK member clubs.  A RS Clubmans competition licence, available free of charge from MSUK, is all that is required to take part.

 

The next edition of the Northumberland Borders Rally is scheduled for Saturday 11th November 2023. See the "Event Registration" page for further details.

We look forward to receiving your entry and to seeing you there on the day.​  

The Organising Team.
