This year's Hughes Rally will run on Saturday 2nd June and will aim to put the historic back into this classic historic rally using some new exciting venues and visiting areas of Kent not used before. Designed to appeal to all levels of experience and to crews from all parts of the country the event will again start and finish within easy reach of the M25 Dartford Crossing.
Past entrants will remember the thrill of special tests and regularities through the MOD training ground at Mereworth woods and thanks to the support of Anglian Demolition and Asbestos Ltd, we will be returning to the woods this year. But it’s not all about the tests, there will also be approximately 130 miles of on road regularities on maps 178, 188 and 189 with navigation designed to provide a challenge to expert crews without being too complicated for beginners.
The Hughes Historic Rally will be a qualifying round of the HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship and the HRCR Premier Rally Championship. For those not wanting to get a MSA licence, or score HRCR Championship points, the Hughes Club Rally will run alongside the National B event. Entrants will receive the same instructions, will follow the same route and participate in the same tests, so it's a great way to get started without the expense of a MSA licence.

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.
