Rallying - it's a world of motor sport all on its own, with many styles and levels of event, from local up to international level, and including, in the UK: night navigational events using public roads, special stage events on forest tracks, special stage events on hard surfaces, classic / historic events for older types of car (and driver).......The one common factor? Two people in the car, the bravest one perhaps being the navigator / co driver. FDMC has a number of members competing as drivers and co-drivers, at regional championship level. Our own annual event, run jointly with Sutton & Cheam MC, is the Abingdon CAR-nival rally, which runs on the Sunday of the CAR-nival weekend.
The CAR-nival's unique and very popular format combines, on the Saturday, a Sprint with two timed courses, and a tarmac autotest run concurrently by Windsor CC; social activities on the Saturday evening, including a barbeque and a grass autotest; and finishing with Sunday's single venue tarmac stage rally.
Both events regularly attract full entries, and the charitable contributions from competitors are a key element of the CAR-nival. These have now totalled more than £80,000 in 7 years, for the two charities which the event supports.
