+ 197 entry applications now received
+ Full 150-car entry list published
+ Other entries now on a reserve list

The first provisional entry list for the 2021 Roger Albert Clark Rally (25-29 November) has been published after the event organisers received an unrivalled response when entries opened on Friday (30 April).

Due to the remarkable demand for entries, the initial plan to accept 135 cars plus 15 reserves has been updated to a total of 150 starters. The key limiting factor is space in service areas, but the list has been stretched as far as possible to accommodate more competitors.

Rally manager Colin Heppenstall said: “Unfortunately, the nature of the planned route, timing and availability of suitably large service areas make it impossible to extend the entry number any further.”

The unseeded entry list has now been published on the event website:

Those numbered 1 to 150 are the entries which will be accepted to run. Numbers 131 to 150 are the 20 foreign crews. The event regulations mandate a maximum of 30% of the entry as a reserve list, so only 45 reserves are allowed. Any remaining entries have been placed on a further wait list and will be joined by any more entries that are now placed.

“May I thank everyone for their patience whilst we worked through the astounding number of entries received. It has given us the difficult task of informing many crews, some of whom have been long-time supporters of the Roger Albert Clark Rally, that they have failed to make the first cut of accepted entries. We have had to abide by our promise to accept them in order of receipt.”

Heppenstall is keen to point out that he expects a significant number of the reserves will move up to the main list over the coming weeks. “In 2017, 50 entries were withdrawn and in 2019, 72 entries were later withdrawn. So we do expect to be able to move a number of the current reserves into a confirmed place.”
