Islanders in Guernsey are gearing up for the first ever Guernsey Rally this weekend.

The event will consist of two stages this morning, followed by a further two stages later today into this evening.

Ten local teams have entered, with 14 Jersey duos and one from the UK going up against them.

The spectacle has been organised by the Guernsey Kart and Motor Club, in association with the Guernsey Motor Cycle and Car Club.

We're determined the event will prove to be a thrilling experience, not only for the professional drivers but also for the spectators who we hope will come out and support the rally teams.

We're delighted we've got 25 rally cars registered to participate over 16 stages which are located through some of Guernsey's tight and twisty lanes, guaranteeing exciting racing.

Specific viewing areas for spectators have been chosen at points located along the rally routes and directions to these points will be announced via our Facebook page.
