Manx Auto Sport has released their regulations for the forthcoming Manx Rally this week, announcing a new-look to their exciting weekend of flat-out action on 15th/16th May 2020.

With online entries set to open on 1st March at 7.00 pm, crews from across the UK, Ireland and Europe will have the opportunity to digest the outline details of the popular closed-road event.

It serves as a scoring round of the popular Protyre Motorsport UK Asphalt Rally Championship, Manx Rally Championship, Brian Dennis Motorsport/Marsh Commercial Welsh Historic Championship, ANWCC Stage Rally Championship and SD34 MSG Stage Rally Championship.

The Manx Rally offers crews of all experiences and abilities the chance to sample some of the most famous asphalt stages in Europe with the Masterpixel Media Manx National Rally, Isle of Man International Rally, Manx Historic Rally and Chris Kelly Memorial Rally all housing a category for crews of all abilities.

Organisers have also been able to secure discounted Ferry crossings and accommodation with their Official Travel Partner Isle of Man Event Services* with the entry fee for the Manx Rally starting from just £660.

On offer, is an impressive 18 stages with around 130 competitive stage miles on the island, with a dynamic route set to take in iconic tests as well as introducing new twists to old favourites. The event will centre around the now traditional TT Grandstand rally base which also houses service, event documentation and scrutiny.

Pre-event reconnaissance is available across five days, with competitors able to nominate two from, Saturday 9th May, Sunday 10th May, Wednesday 13th May and Thursday 14th May. Crews will also get the chance to sample the unique Manx roads with shakedown which takes place on the morning of Friday 15th.

The Manx Rally will get underway on Friday afternoon with three stages kicking off proceedings before a brief halt heralds the arrival of darkness for six more special tests totalling over 46 miles. This loop will also include the return of the iconic Castletown stage which has long been a symbol of rallying on the island thanks to its harbour-hugging street stage around the town.

A late-night finish on Friday will push crews to the limit but Saturday offers the hardest test of all with over 62 miles and eight stages on offer ahead of the now traditional TT Grandstand podium celebrations later that afternoon for the lucky finishers.

Event regulations are now available to download with the opening of entries on 1st March 7.00 pm.
