Welcome to the Pirelli International Rally official website.

This year’s event will run on Saturday 27th April 2019.

The 2019 Rally will run on Saturday 27th April. We are the third round of the British Rally Championship, and the second round of the FUCHS Lubricant Motorsport UK British Historic Rally Championship, as well as a round of the HRCR Motoscope Northern Historic Gravel Rally Championship, ANECCC SG Petch Stage Rally Championship, and the Race & Rally Rally2 Championship.

For spectators, we would like to remind you that our event does not require you to purchase a ticket to be able to view any of the stages. We will be publishing maps to the spectator car parks and stages in the weeks leading up to the rally – so please do keep checking the website.

In 2018 we trailed a new format of a one-day event with all servicing taking place in Kielder Valley. This allowed us to run with a ratio of almost 50/50 on stage to road miles. This was very successful and it was an easy decision to keep with this format for 2019. We are again aiming to run with a ratio of almost 50/50 stage to road miles, with servicing taking place once again in Kielder Valley. The ceremonial finish will take place in the lovely town of Brampton on Saturday night, just a few miles for Rally HQ which will be based just off of Junction 43 of the M6.

So, welcome to our website, which contains all the information you will ever need to know about “The Pirelli”. Links to other websites, Facebook, Twitter, and the ability to contact us are all available.

Our top priority is SAFETY. We cannot stress enough as to how important that this is to us. So we ask that if you are thinking of coming to marshal, to spectate or even participate in the rally – that you visit our Safety page and read it thoroughly. Also please have a read of the Spectator Safety – The future of rallying is in your hands article, that the Chairman of our Organising Committee has written. Thanks.

Make a date in your diary, keep checking the website for updates and we will see you there!
