Interested to know more about motorsport?

25th April 2018

We know the event has reached many people who’ve not been close-up to Motor Sport before, so I here are some pointers to help you find-out how to get more closely involved yourself, whether as a competitor or volunteer.

The organising club for the rally was Chelmsford Motor Club which has its own website and Facebook page. It’s also part of the Anglia Motor Sport Club which encourages grass roots motor sport across East Anglia.

There are various types of motor sport at a grass roots level which you can start in, using a standard roadgoing car. Some entry fees as low as £10 for a day or even free for under 18s so there is sport for every budget. Many competitors in the rally will have started this way.

Information and helpful tips about the different types of motor sport are on the dedicated Go Motorsport website. This is where the governing body, the Motor Sport Association (MSA) has collated details about the different types of motor sport you can compete in, or join the huge number of volunteers (over 500 on Sunday) who make these events happen.

There are 750 motor clubs around the UK so wherever you came from you’ll be able to find one nearby. There’s a club finder section on the MSA website here (scroll down when the page opens)

Thanks again for your support of the rally; it will be great to hear from you to help you get involved too.
