An­gle­sey en­tries boosted for 2016

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The Lee Hol­land Me­mo­rial Rally based at An­gle­sey has re­ceived a mas­sive boost in en­tries hav­ing run close to the wire in pre­vi­ous years.

The event – which is part of the new Mo­tor­sport News Cir­cuit Rally Cham­pi­onship – had 46 en­tries last year but the event has 90 crews for this year’s event so far.

Or­gan­iser Pen­dle and District Mo­tor Club’s Rod Br­ere­ton said: “We’ve strug­gled over the years. We’ve al­ways done it off our own backs, along with the best club we’ve ever worked with, the Garstang and Pre­ston Mo­tor Club. Pen­dle does it but they de­serve a lot of credit.

“We had more en­tries in the first 24 hours than the event got last year, so it has to be a good thing. It’s gen­er­ated a blind­ing amount of in­ter­est.”
