Entries for the Bet on Aces Manx National Rally (11/12 May) don’t close until April 28, but Round 2 of the Protyre MSA Asphalt Rally Championship has already received a staggering 123 entries!
And it’s no surprise, as Manx Auto Sport is organising a spectacular 130 special stage mile route over some of Europe’s best rally asphalt stages, with 16 stages in total.
The compact route (with only 120 road miles) begins with four separate stages – Creg-ny-Baa, Druidale, Knocksharry and Baldwins – ran twice on the Friday night. Saturday contains another four stages – Keristal, Parville, St Mark’s and Balladoole – also ran twice. The longest stage of the event is Parville at 12.86 miles, followed by Knocksharry (12.08 miles) and Baldwins (11.34 miles).
Signing on, servicing and the finish will be located at the famous TT Grandstand.
