Due to the press release from Motorsport UK below we will not be running the 2020 Midsummer Caerwent rally on 28th June. We will looked to bring the event to you in the summer of 2021.
Press release from Motorsport UK on the 24/03/2020
In light of recent developments in the COVID-19 crisis, and following the address to the nation by the Prime Minister on the evening of 23rd March, Motorsport UK has today extended its suspension of all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June.
This move provides clear guidance to event organisers, venues, competitors, officials and volunteer marshals of the role that Motorsport UK must play in supporting the broader UK public health agenda.
In recent days the feedback from our members and the community was a need for increased clarity to allow them to plan appropriately and, should the need arise, put in place necessary contingency measures.
Motorsport UK Chairman, David Richards explained, “Motorsport UK has a vital role to play with its community in re-inforcing that, at this time of national emergency, we must all stay at home to play our part in protecting the NHS and ultimately saving lives. Today, the government have required that we effectively lock-down for a period of three weeks, however given that the most vulnerable in our society are required to isolate for three months, it is evident that the most responsible course of action was to propose a longer suspension of our sport. When we reflect back on this time, it will be a brief, but vital, hiatus from our everyday motorsport life and we must put this in perspective. This is a time of national unity and we need to come together with the broader public community to do all we can to support this battle and ultimately save lives.”
Motorsport UK will continue to monitor the prevailing advice from the UK Government in respect of the COVID-19 international pandemic and will update the motorsport community accordingly.

Caerwent Training Area
Acorn Travel Midsummer Caerwent Rally 2019
Forresters Car Club are delighted to announce their intention to promote a rally at Caerwent MOD Training Area that, we think, will provide competitors with an excellent route, reflect good value for money and hopefully, good weather.
For our 2019 event we would like to welcome the WAMC JD Tyres Welsh National Tarmacadam Championship, the WAMC Welsh Junior Challenge, the F1000 Senior Rally Championship and the F1000 Junior Championship.
In an effort to provide an event that appeals to all levels of expertise and budgets, we have hopefully opted to run an event that caters for everyone. We have classes for Historic Rally Cars and a class purely for two wheel drive cars over 2000cc.
As with all forms of sport today, events cannot be organised without assistance from sponsors and we are delighted to announce that Dave Morgan at Acorn Travel has agreed to once again sponsor the 2019 Midsummer Caerwent Rally.
We hope that you will be able to take part in this event, which not only has an experienced organising team, but also a superb venue at the MOD Caerwent Training Area.
Following feedback from our competitors, we are pleased to announce that Scrutineering will be on both Saturday 15th June and Sunday 16th June 2019. (Two day scrutineering will depend on the final number of entries).
We look forward to receiving your early entry, as our entry list for this rally usually fills up quickly. Consequently entries will be at a premium for what we, the organising team, feel will not be just another rally, but a rally for everyone, with a challenging route, lots of mileage and last but not least, that vital ingredient fun!
