As with all motor sport events, the successful running of the Bob Budd Memorial Targa Road Rally is dependent on a large numbers of marshals.
Mercia Motor Sports events rely purely on volunteers for marshals; we do not exercise a ‘no marshal, no start’ rule to competitors.
We would be delighted if you could help us out by marshalling. If so, please register using the button below, or by completing the Marshal Request Form
If you are a family or group, it is a requirement that ALL members of the group/family register individually. It would be useful if you could indicate this in the General Notes section on registration. How about giving yourselves a team name?
Please note, Marshals will not be allowed to register on the day as all the controls will have been allocated by this stage.
For other marshal related queries, please contact the Chief Marshal on
By registering as a marshal, you are agreeing to the current Motorsport UK Pre-Event Declaration.

This years Bob Budd Memorial Mercian Targa Rally takes place on the 15th October 2023. As with previous years, we are grateful for the support of GB Rally Prep of Kettering.


In 2019 and 2021, the GB Rally Prep Mercian Rally raised over £1,000 for the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance. Due to the overwhelming support given by competitors and marshals, we will be supporting the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance again this year.
