Congratulations to Simon Mellings and Ryan Pickering in their Toyota MR2 for taking the Overall Winners Award in the Hughes Historic Rally 2017 and to all the other finishers. A complete
list of the award holders and final results is available to dowload below.
The Hughes Historic Rally is having a makeover this year, reviving old favourites and introducing some exciting new off road regularity sections. Designed to appeal to all levels of experience
and to crews from all parts of the country the event has been moved to a start / finish location close to the M25 Dartford Crossing and will now run on a Saturday.
Past entrants will remember the thrill of special tests and regularities through the MOD training ground at Mereworth woods and after several years of not being able to use this venue, thanks to the
support of Anglian Demolition and Asbestos Ltd, we are pleased to announce that we will be returning to the woods this year. We will be back at Hole Park Estate again this year, but with a twist.
This year we are planning to make greater use of the estate roads and tracks with both special tests and off road regularities. There will also be hard surface tests at other venues during the
But it’s not all about the tests, there will also be approx 120 miles of on road regularities on maps 188 and 189 with navigation designed to provide a challenge to expert crews without being too
complicated for beginners. To encourage less experienced crews “Panic Envelopes” will be provided should you get really stuck.
The start / finish will be at the Holiday Inn, Wrotham, just off J2 M20 / J2a M26, providing easy access to the Rally start and finish. Scrutineering will be available Friday evening and
The Hughes Historic Rally (National B-Historic) and the Hughes Club Rally (Clubmans-Targa) will run over the same route with the same tests and regularity sections.
Supplementary Regulations and Final Instructions are available on the Regulations page and the Final Entry Lists are available
on the Entries page.
Is it Difficult?
If you'd like to get a feel for the event, here are the Hughes Rally Road Book and Route Cards from 2016 which you can download and try route plotting at home. We think you'll find the
navigation fairly straight forward.
