SUPPLEMENTRY REGULATIONS

FOREWORD
Welcome to the Aberystwyth and District Motor Club Ltd. Cambrian Hyundai Night Owl Rally 2016.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors for their continued support.
As Organisers, we are proud that the event is in the WAMC, Junior Challenge and ANWCC road rally championships.
This ear s event, as with previous years starts and finishes in Aberystwyth and as organisers we hope to put on a testing route of some
110 miles on OS map 135 and 146 with minimal use of whites. (Latest Landranger editions required)
Due to the format of the event we require many controls, which obviously require marshals. We therefore have to insist that each crew
brings at least one marshal with them.
We look forward to welcoming you to Aberystwyth on the night be it as competitor or marshal.
