These entries are intended to help you to find the venues for rallies, events, etc.

For strangers to Devon note that the direct route is not always the easiest: we have a lot of narrow roads with steep hills, and meeting someone on those while towing a trailer or driving a horsebox can be bad for both mental equilibrium and clutch! We have tried to indicate good routes below, but it is always worth studying a map before starting off.
