Just a reminder that the trophies handed out at North Devon Motor Club's 2018 Dinner & Dance need to be brought back, ready for 2019's event. Please can they be returned to Martin Masters at M&E Alarms, Upcott Park, Barnstaple, EX31 1AD. 





North Devon Motor Club and the organisers of the ‘ILFRACOMBE TARGA RALLY’ which was due to take place on the 1st December regret to announce that the event is postponed. Although no Supplementary Regulations were issued, a large number of competitors and officials had committed to the rally and we are sorry for this situation. It was to be the final round of the ASWMC’s Targa, Open and Novice Championships.

A great deal of preparation had been undertaken with the help of Boconnoc Estates and landowners but unfortunately there is now not enough time to complete this preparation work and the organisers feel that the event would be much improved if run in the Spring of next year.

We would like to thank the many sponsors and supports of the event and look forward to seeing competitors and officials in 2019.


However…………. North Devon Motor Club will organise a Clubmans permit Targa Rally at Chivenor on Saturday 8th December 2018 to be called the ‘ILFRACOMBE MINI TARGA’. Though not a ‘small’ event we are offering 5 Special Test on tarmac totalling 17 miles. With a sensible start and finish time and a very attractive entry fee it promises to be an excellent motorsport day. It will suit seasoned competitors, and those new to this sport it’s an ideal taster. It’s also a chance for our Club to develop our Targa rallies.

We do hope you will join us at this unique venue. Details of the event and Entry Form can be down loaded via the following links:-

UPDATE 22/November/2018

I Apologise for the mistake in the SR’s regarding Scrutineering Requirements in point 6. This has now been removed.

To clarify, the event will be run under a Road Rally Permit and all cars must comply with MSA Technical Regulations R.18 as stated in point 5
