20/21st June – Keilder K2 Rally (Grade 3) – ATRC
THE PUTOLINE K2 RALLY 20/21 JUNE BELLINGHAM
This year the rally undergoes its biggest change in 5 years , starting from the outskirts of Bellingham the rally heads out north through the forest of Wark to Falstones where is crosses the Kielder dam and continuing north towards the Scottish border it turns south and crosses back over the Kielder dam , the tracks and trails in this part of the forest are excellent with tight turns grassy lanes and should provide a great weekends riding.
Using the northern Falstone area of forest will add around 60% new riding keeping the rally fresh, as usual this rally offers traditional enduro loops which are optional for riders that want a challenge there is ample road time to try the enduro loops.
The start is from kielder organic meats farm just on the outskirts of Bellingham is a short walk to town which has pubs , petrol station, shops, catering at the campsite is provided by kielder organics meats which is excellent using the finest organic products reared on the farm.

Sept 26/27t – SMCC Tour of Man – All Terrain Rally (Grade 3) – ATRC
Another brand new rally for 2015, it’s looking like a 80 mile loop as well as a good “timed section” on private land. Organised by The Southern Motorcycle Club – this is looking like another proper rally event.
15th November – Hafren Rally (Grade 4) – ATRC – New Date
Back for 2015, the Hafren is a one day event with a great course and is a challenge to end the season off. Organised by Hafren Dirt Bike club, this is a favourite so be warned.
MoonkRaker Rally (Roadbook Navigation only) – RallyMoto Cup We are unable to secure a date for this event due to the WRC running in the Forests in the area we usually use for our events.
You can score points at all 8 rounds of the ATRC but your two worst results (or events you don’t attend as your points will be zero) will be removed from your points tally for the final points of the ATRC for 2015
For the RallyMoto Cup riders will need to compete in all three rounds to gain points – riders need to do all three rounds for 2015. (8th April 2015 – under discussion)
