RAC Rally of the Tests 2025
An Event Designed For Experts
The 22nd running of the event will start from Darlington, spend two nights in the Scottish Lowlands and finish in Cumbria, on the edge of the Pennines.
The “Tests” offers the ultimate challenge in the historic rallying calendar with a wide variety of regularities, tests and TC sections on classic roads and venues in the North of England and Southern Scotland. The 2024 edition sees the event start close to Darlington and head into the rolling hills, wooded valleys and epic valleys that make up Northumberland. Crossing the border for two days in the Scottish Lowlands the event will continue its tradition of taking the road less travelled, challenging crews with every twist and turn as the route makes it way south following the Pennines to finish in Cumbria. A wide variety of tracks, forestry and private land will be used throughout the event.
RAC Rally of the Tests Lite
After a very well received inaugural year in 2023 a “Lite” version will once again be run in 2024 in conjunction with the traditional format The ethos of this will include less driving in the dark and easier navigation instructions.
Based on feedback this year some plotting will be incorporated into the event, but this will never be required on the move, and additional test classes will be included subject to entries.
