TEIFI Valley Motor Club will play host to the much anticipated Rali Bro Preseli on Saturday, April 8.
This year’s event will again be starting at the market car park in Parc Gwynfryn, Crymych, and the signing on for competitors will be at Garej Wyn.
Rali Bro Preseli has been running since 2003 under the name of Teifi Valley Motor Club, and has raised well over £30,000 for good causes during this time, and £4,800 over the past two years.
The club officials, organisers and members are very proud of this event that has made such a difference to charities over this time. This event has also been the starting point for many competing drivers and navigators as it runs as a novice event, and is closed to members of TVMC. Despite this, the rally attracts competitors from all over Wales due to the popularity of the event.
This year is no exception and has filled the 75 car entry list in no time at all with a long list of reserves standing by. Leading the pack as the first car out will be last year's winners, Tim Hand driving with Jason Davies as the navigator.
They will be followed by Heulyn Phillips and Wyn Mathias in a Vauxhall Astra as car 2, then Nigel Nelson and Steffan Evans in car 3 with a Subaru Impreza.
Car 4 will be Mark Lloyd and Richard Williams, car 5 Gareth Edwards and Guto Davies followed by Eifion Thomas and Dewi Davies in car 6. Aled Johnson and Aled James will be the 7th car out in a Rover Gti, with Rheinallt George and Rhodri Evans in car 8.
Closing the top 10 will be James Evans and Ffion Davies in car 9, followed by Tomos Rees and David Edwards in car 10. The rest of the field is full of competitive crews who are all looking forward to an exciting evening of motorsport.
Barry Davies, Peter Collins and Robert James who are the clerks of the course for the event, have been busy with their team of organisers to get the event ready for the weekend. They are excited for the event that is sure to be suitable for all crews with challenging and enjoyable sectors throughout the route.
Barry Davies noted: “We are excited with what we have prepared for the competitors and would like to sincerely thank all land owners and home owners for their cooperation on route. Without the positive support from the public, this event wouldn’t exist, and the fantastic amounts raised for good causes would not be possible”.
Spectators are welcome to come to the start venue to view the cars before they leave for an evening of motorsport around the lanes of Pembrokeshire. Spectator information booklets will also be available with advice and guidance as where to watch the event in a safe location.
