hmm, Teifi valley dont like 16v or engines ith more than 4 pots motors
not sure which club runs the Twilight but there were several Astra GTE's there, and a TR4
If you are saying this due to their website page that specifies technical regulation for road rally cars, then you are wrong.
The rules they are quoting (along with Blue Book refs) are out of date. Events running on road rally permits, eg Teifi Valleys Bro Presli and Cliwendeg rallies, don't have a standard production class, turbos are not allowed, 16vs are allowed (see previous posts for eligiblity requirements) and more than 4 cylinders is still not allowed.
They have a very strong road rally scene but from a quick look at the website, not much has been updated since 2006. I am sure some of their road rally competitors are running 16vs and if it is a local club, a good choice for anyone wanting to start road rallying (8v or 16v).
Welshpug.........let me inform you that Teifi Valley Motor Club DOES NOT HAVE A PROBLEM
with people running 16v engines in cars as long as they comply with the MSA Blue Book (i.e. running on standard injection systems)
This has been the case since the rule was brought in during 2006........in fact, on the Cilwendeg Rally in 2006, the car that was leading the event until an electrical problem put it out of the rally was a MK2 Escort with a Honda S2000 engine fitted in it.
Since then, they've had Escorts with Astra 16v engines in and 205 MI16's on every event that they've run.
As for anything over 4 cylinders or turbo charged......well that is not down to ANY
club. That was a rule brought in by the MSA in January 2007, when they banned all Scooby's, Evo's, Sierra 4x4 V6's etc.
SPGTI..............You are spot on
Teifi Valley's website has'nt been updated much since 2006 for the simple reason that the club's secretery recieved an e-mail from the Police asking on which websites the club's events were promoted. That's the reason the forum section on the website has gone!!!!! The Police and MSA use forum's as evidence, and look for photos showing road signs, white lines / road markings and poeple talking about speed / skiding / drifting etc, so it was easier to pull the forum than to keep checking it !! Another No NO is posting road rally videos on You Tube - cops and the MSA love them as evidence, and every video they find is another nail in the road rally coffin
As for a strong road rally scene.............you could say that
The club has over 350 members - 220 of them competed in the Club's Road Rally Championship this year. In comparison, only 95 people in the whole of the UK did the Welsh Road Rally Championship!!!!!
