With just under three weeks to go, entries are steadily rolling in for the Brick & Steel Border Counties Rally which takes place on 20-21 March.

The organisers have worked hard to secure stages in the Kielder, Wauchope and Harwood complexes, some of which have not been used by the event for many years.

The National 'B' event will have some 45 stage miles in 5 stages with a road mileage of 95 miles. The National 'A' event will have 7 stages totalling 60 miles with a total road mileage of 129. The difference between the two events will be the opportunity to compete on two stages in Wauchope Forest on Friday night.

This year with the running of all of the cars in classes 1 to 6 at the front of the field on the National 'B' event and classes A1, A5 and A6 on the National 'A' event on the Saturday, along with the fantastic challenge of night stages and the entry fee being kept at the same level as 2008, organiser hope the event will prove to be popular

"Please make sure you get your entries in early to be sure of a run!" clerk of the course Paul Hughes urged potential entrants. "And don't forget registered contenders in the National 'B' event can still enter the National 'A' event and score points in their relevant championships on the Saturday."
