Welcome to the the Primrose Rally, a Navigational Rally running on 25th / 26th February 2023.


LATEST NEWS:  21/2/23: Change of Start/Finish venue - now at the Ring Feeder Cafe PL21 0SG.   Check for results


South Hams Motor Club have been running night road events since 1972 and we are constantly looking for the “ideal” format, listening to competitors and the changing conditions in the sport and area. We feel accuracy in all sides of the car will be required for a good result on our events.

For 2023 Chuley Road Garage returns as full event sponsor, a name that has been linked with SHMC and local motorsport for more years than they care to recall!

The ethos is becoming: “Do the event Saturday night, wash it Sunday and drive it to work Monday”.

In recent years we have got more of an eye to the future of the sport, trying to encourage more newcomers to step up from 12 Car to larger Clubman/Interclub events, and thus the events are being designed to be much kinder to cars, but not necessarily to the crews.

We are using OS Map 201 and 202 this year.  Rally HQ is at Wrangaton Golf Club the Ring Feeder Cafe and just 3 miles from the A38 near South Brent, so those travelling from a little further afield will find the event very easy to get to.

We look forward to receiving your entry, and any questions you have please ask away, our details are in the SRs.

If after 5 full days after entries open, the maximum number has been reached then the remaining 15 entries will be selected at the “organiser’s discretion”. If it has not been reached at this point, entries will be selected in a “first come first served basis”.  The maximum number for the event is 60, should more entries be received this figure, a reserve list of 10 will be created and will be contacted if an entry becomes available.

CO2 and Climate change

As part of our commitment to:
•    The protection of the environment
•    Reducing the detrimental impact of events on the environment
•    Improving the sustainability of motorsport in the UK

We donate a small environmental levy from our events to offset the CO2 produced by all competing vehicles, and that of the South Hams Motor Club organisers on the event. We invest this in a local tree planting scheme to permanently offset the carbon produced and to achieve net-zero carbon for our events.
