In and around Machynlleth, Karen Spencer as Stage Commander with the BMSC team supporting. We ran the "Big Ray" stage, an excellent stage with fantastic weather, all our cars went in and came out.. even if one broke down just after the stop line. Fantastic support from our marshalling friends again, thank you to everyone who attended.Learn More
Back to Kielder forest for this event, Jon Binns as stage commander, four seasons in one hour. A good day setting up and then hail on rally day. With an incident in the second half of the stage we lost the historic section and had to reroute the cars for their road section back to service, a few hours wait before we restarted to complete the allocate field of cars, the stage was stripped and put back into A1 order before a well deserved hot meal and a few pints.Learn More
Karen Spencer back in control as Stage Commander with just under 14 mile of closed road in the St Marks area. Whilst the weather was very wet in set up the sun shone bright for St Marks stage, it was typical Manx roads, fast and flowing with a few chicanes and tightened junctions. Absolutely first class stages and the safety delegate praised the stage set up.Learn More
By now you will have probably seen the official route announcement for Wales Rally GB 2019. https://www.walesrallygb.com/innovations-power-wales-rally…/ Buccaneer Motor Sports Club is proud to be able to confirm that we will be book-ending the event again, as we did in 2017. On the morning of Thursday 3rd October, Karen Spencer starts the proceedings by commanding the Shakedown stage at Gwydir Forest. At the other end of the event on Sunday 6th October, Jon Binns will be commanding the Power Stage at Brenig once again. Event staffing will be via the Rally Stage Team (RST) online database system as usual. (www.rallystageteam.co.uk). For all roles other than radio, please register via RST in the normal way. However for these stages and a few others that fill very quickly, the event is trying a new approach for radio crews. If you would like to register as a radio operator on either/both stages, please contact the relevant Stage Commander. We very much hope that you will be able to join us for what promises to be an epic championship battle to the end of the year.
More details to follow but you can be sure we will be in there with a stage http://racrmc.org/roger-albert-clark-rally/news

Back North to the scottish borders for this long standing event, we have won best stage of day many times. We really enjoy the long stages and set up, its also a social experience and we appreciate there times when forests require logging however the mud it leaves behind can be sticky
Another year of attending this event running a stage, this year it was 14 mile of St Marks. We worked with W&DMC and special guest Alan Page the MSA Training executive learning timekeeping duties, we also supplied one of the MSA Timekeepers.
This was very interesting, we ran 3 stages overall, The event was hard on cars with up to 14 cars having failures on one stage. We had dust then rain and hail stones, a very mixed day, luckily the rain kept the midges at bay for a while. We also provided recovery on this event.
Our annual trip down south to have a wonderful social experience with our friends at Worksop & DMC. 11 BMSC members joined WDMC to supply half the rally stage and activity field marshals. 4 days camping but its very interesting.
