Jim Clark Rally 30-31 May 2014

The following message was sent by Lock Horsburgh of the Scottish Association of Car Clubs, on behalf of Dave Brodie, Chief Marshal of the Jim Clark Rally 2014.


I would like to invite you to marshal on this year’s Jim Clark Rally, the only closed-road rally on the UK mainland. This year the rally will take place on Friday 30th & Saturday 31st May, with the Reivers Rally taking place on Sunday 1st June.

The Jim Clark Rally will this year be based in Kelso. Springwood Park will host the service park and marshals’ facilities. The Reivers Rally on Sunday will again be based in Duns at Berwickshire High School.

It is proposed that the Jim Clark Rally will comprise of;

· 4 stages, all repeated, on Friday evening. The first stage will go live at 7pm and the latest stage finish possible is 1am (although it is scheduled to be before midnight).

· 5 stages, again all repeated, on Saturday. The first stage will go live at 8.30am and the latest stage finish possible is 8pm (although it is scheduled to be around 6pm). Wherever possible, marshals who officiate on the later stages on Friday will not be asked to officiate on the earlier stages on Saturday unless they wish to do so.

The Reivers Rally on Sunday will comprise of 4 stages, also all repeated. The first stage will go live at 9.30am and it is anticipated the last stage will be finished around 4pm.

Camping will again be provided free of charge to those who marshal on two or more days. This will be at Springwood Park in Kelso, where those who camped last year will be pleased to learn there are proper shower and toilet facilities! There will also be a marshals’ “do” on Saturday evening.

I am looking for marshals of all disciplines – Arrival, Start, Flying Finish, Stop Line and In Stage.

If you are able to marshal, please contact me;

· By telephone on 07795 253563.

· By email at dave.brodie@jimclarkrally.com or chiefmarshal@jimclarkrally.com

· By visiting the event website, http://www.jimclarkrally.com, selecting Rally Information – Rally Marshals – Volunteer Marshals and submitting the volunteer form.

Hope to see you in May!

Dave Brodie
