*A unique motor sport opportunity calling young ‘would be’ navigators
*Do you relish the prospect of competitive navigation in a fully prepared rally machine?
Then this may be for you
This is your opportunity to apply for a unique and very special scholarship inspired by the late Bob Rutherford who was always helping and encouraging new young talent into historic motor sport. Now in his name, this programme will find and train the next star navigator to compete against the best in the sport on national and eventually, international historic rallies.
You may have some navigational experience from a different sphere or you may have none. However, if the chance to receive full training from professionals, including selected training with the governing body of the sport in this country (Motorsport UK) in part of their Academy programme fires you up, then this is for you. The winner of the Scholarship will be competing for free in four rallies.
It is not often that young navigators are given such support or the chance to start up in a growing branch of rally sport, so don’t delay and enter today!

Individual mentoring to help evolve individual’s understanding and skill-set
Free entry into all navigation seminars/classes.
