2024 Rix Engineering AEMC/ASEMC Stage Rally Championship


Welcome to the 2024 Rix Engineering AEMC/ASEMC Stage Rally Championship.

Promoted by the Associations of Eastern and South Eastern Motor Clubs

The 2023 championship was sponsored for the first time by Rix Engineering. We were all saddened to lose Ian Rix to cancer a few months into the year. His wife Claire and son Aaron Rix are regular competitors, marshals and officials in the East Anglian rally scene and have supported a new event – the Rixy Stages, which was held in Ian’s memory at the Stanta army training ground near Thetford at the end of December. We are delighted to host the 2024 series in memory of Ian, with support from the family and its engineering business once again.

Last year’s championship was won by Darrell Taylor driving his rapid Fiesta R5 and Steve McNulty, who co-drove for Darrell on many events but also hopped into other cars as well during the year. Darrell was the only driver to finish more than six events in the year and was always in the top three in a very competitive class. Last year’s winning driver, Wayne Larbalestier this year finished second, with the remaining overall and class positions still to be resolved on the final round as these regs went press.

For 2024, we are hoping that there will be ten rounds in the championship, with seven to count, placing a premium on consistency throughout the year but giving more flexibility for crews based across the wider geography of the championship.
