Border Ecosse C C

Activities

B.E.C.C. is one of the Motor Sport Association approved motor clubs in the Borders area with the means to enable you to participate in the Motorsport Activity of your choice.

Navigational Rallies

These events are run on public roads during the hours of darkness where navigational skills are the order of the day, not speed!

Run at the average speed of 30mph, these rallies usually take in a route of some 60 -70 miles. An ideal and inexpensive way of entering motorsport using your own road car.  There is a novice section with basic map reading and clues for the first timer, and free tuition is available. If you wish, you can enter the many regional championships, or just compete for the fun of it.

Autotests

Autotests give everyone another chance to enjoy a motorsport activity, at very little cost, using their normal road car.

These simple tests usually take place on spacious tarmac or grass areas where car driving skills come to the fore. Timed to the second, these driving tests are tight, great fun and risk free.  The club run the tests as part of their own Autotest and Club Championship.

Autocross

Autocross is basically racing on a grass or stubble field circuit against the clock, which produces some fast and very exciting motorsport.

BECC have staged a round of the ever-popular ANECCC North-East Autocross Championship for more years than we care to remember and produced a few worthy champions of our own along the way.  Over the past eight years, the club have successfully promoted their own well subscribed Borders Autocross Championship.  This event consists of ten rounds (see calendar) staged at various locations in the Borders and North East of England and we are grateful for the continued support from Border High Performance of Norham and JS45 of Berwick-upon-Tweed.

Stage Rallies

Here, specially prepared cars compete in classes based on engine size, on surfaced or ‘loose’ roads in several timed stages, and the crew with the least time penalties on finishing wins.

BECC promote two special stage rallies annually. Charterhall Stages is a single venue rally set on the old wartime airfield and former racing circuit at Charterhall.  Jointly supported by KD Grafix & Ian Logan MVR of Leitholm, this event is always a great day out whether you’re competing or spectating.  The second is the ‘Jim Clark Memorial Rally’ - a round of the Kwik-Fit Pirelli British Rally Championship and the ‘County Saab’ Scottish Rally Championship. This closed public road event, the first to be staged on mainland Britain, is jointly organised with our close neighbours at Berwick & District Motor Club.

Rally Championships

These events are composed of a specified number of rounds, each of which is held at a different venue. Each round consists of several stages as in the Stage Rallies above.

Border Ecosse promote the ‘Scottish Borders’ Rally Championship. This highly popular series is made up of 12 rounds staged on a mixture of tarmac and forest venues throughout Scotland and draws a fair number of competitors from all parts of Scotland and the North-East of England.  Contenders will also have the added chance to contest 5 forest and 7 tarmac rounds in two separate challenges within the Championship.  All five forest rounds make up the Anderson (Builders) Forest Rally Challenge.                                                        Invaluable support for this year’s championship comes from the our long-time sponsor Anderson the Builders of Chirnside.
