RAC Rally14The 2014 Roger Albert Clark Rally (28-30 November) will have a completely new look as the event starts a new era with Sunderland as the host city.

With the rally start, finish and HQ all based in Sunderland, the route will make extensive use of the Kielder forest complex and will take in several stages that are completely new to the event in a total competitive route of up to 190 stage miles.

“We’ve got a great variety of stages in the wider Kielder complex, from Hamsterley in the south to Ogre Hill in the north and Kershope in the west,” said rally manager Colin Heppenstall. “The support from Sunderland City Council has allowed us to increase the stage mileage by 30 miles, but keep the entry fee at the same level as last year at £1950, which is a fraction over £10 per mile.”

Around a third of Saturday’s 90-stage miles will run in darkness in a route that heads as far west as the Kershope and Ash Park stages. The 14-hour day promises to be a mighty test of man and machine. Sunday’s action centres on the main Kielder complex with another 70 competitive miles before the finish back in Sunderland. The event’s traditional sting in the tail will be 26 stage miles over the concluding two tests in Falstone and Harwood.
