The XPart Rally is a day/night endurance road rally for lightly modified two-wheel drive cars limited to 1400cc petrol and 2000cc diesel non-turbo engines, built to the Endurance Road Rally formula. This event will be run in support of both Help For Heroes and Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families (SSAFA) charities; last year CMC events raised over £3000 for charity.
Starting mid morning on Saturday 18th February 2012, the route will be centred around Bury St Edmunds, with over 100 miles of selectifs at various venues in Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridge and Essex.
The day leg start will be from the Ramada Hotel, Bury St Edmunds, including a short break for lunch followed by a supper halt (carvery) at The Rushbrooke Arms, Sicklesmere. The day leg is approximately 200 miles with approximately 80 miles of selectifs. The night leg will be approximately 90 miles including 20 miles of selectifs and approximately 15 miles of simple navigation on tarmac lanes (full night leg road book issued at supper). The event will finish with an awards presentation at the Ramada Hotel, Bury St Edmunds. A special rate has been negotiated with the hotel for those crews who wish to stay Friday 17th / Saturday 18th and/or join the organisers in the bar after the event.
The route instructions will be straightforward. Similar to last year, tulip road books will be provided and complemented with detailed selectif diagrams to ensure that crews of all abilities can complete the rally.
