The end of April will see the popular novice night rally organised by the Teifi Valley Motor Club being held in Pembrokeshire.

On the weekend of April 27/28, Rali Bro Preseli will see 75 novice crews tackling the winding and challenging roads that Pembrokeshire has to offer.

Clerks of the course, father and son Richard and Jason Davies along with Aled Richards have a route lined up for competitors.

Starting as usual at the Crymych Mart, the route will appeal to all novice drivers and navigators.

“It will offer a bit of everything. It will be challenging but easy to follow with some whites thrown in the mix. Aled has designed the whole route and we’ve done the donkey work,” said Jason Davies.

As regular competitors, Jason and Richard wanted to give something back to the sport and they enjoy being on the organising side of things.

“We’ve competed in the Preseli on several occasions, and we decided to give something back to the sport and that’s why dad and I thought it would be a good idea to help.

"It’s interesting to see how it all comes together and the work involved, and there’s a lot of that,” explained Jason who won the Bro Preseli with his father in 2013. He also won the event with Tim Hand in 2016 and was fourth overall in 2019.

Aled Richards knows the routes of Rali Bro Preseli like the back of his hand having only ever missed it once since its formation in 2003.

He’s driven on four of them in 2005 – 2008 with the best result of 4th place with Arwel Jenkins in the navigator seat.

Aled has been chief marshal on Rali Bro Preseli since 2013 before moving on to clerk this year and competitors can look forward to a great event.

“This is the first time I’ve been clerk of the course, but we have a good team with Dylan Davies as chief marshal and Olwen Davies as secretary.

"I live some 30 miles away from the actual route, but we’ve been around it twice and I’m confident it will be a good yet challenging night.

"Some of the whites are currently waterlogged but the farmers have been brilliant and offered to help clear the tracks before the event and we are very grateful,” said Aled.

The rally, sponsored by Arjay Factors and Home James Taxis, will have four official spectator points on the night and the locations will be available at signing on.

The clerks of the course and the Teifi Valley Motor Club would like to thank all those who have helped to organise the event - landowners, homes en route, petrol at Brian Llewellyn a’i Ferched, and the start and finish venues – Crymych Mart and the Teifi Waterside Hotel.
