Rally thanks

Motor Sport News - - Have Your Say -

I would like to thank the se­nior of­fi­cials, stage com­man­ders, mar­shals, tim­ing crews, res­cue and re­cov­ery crews who came from all over the coun­try to sup­port us on the 39th run­ning of the Mid Wales Stages, this year the open­ing round of the brand new, MSA Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship, on March 5/6.

We were also pleased to wel­come back the De­fender Chal­lenge by Bowler Mo­tor­sport, the FMP Rally Chal­lenge, the Pirelli MSA Welsh Stage Rally Cham­pi­onship, the Welsh Club­man’s For­est Cham­pi­onship, the ANWCC His­toric Stage Rally Cham­pi­onship, For­est Rally Cham­pi­onship, Ladies Cham­pi­onship and All­rounders Cham­pi­onship and also wel­come the brand new HRCR Stage Masters His­toric Stage Rally Chal­lenge.

As re­sult we had 120 en­tries, with 115 start­ing.

Thanks to your ef­forts we were able to run an event that Colin Clark, in MN, said “ac­tu­ally lived up to all the pre-event hype” and com­prised “some of the best stages in the world”.

The weather was chal­leng­ing but re­sulted in a true test for all crews.

Many com­peti­tors, cham­pi­onship of­fi­cials and se­nior of­fi­cials (from other clubs) also praised the run­ning of the event and this was down to your huge team ef­fort. We also had to com­ply with all the new MSA Rally Fu­ture safety re­quire­ments.

We ran to in­ter­na­tional rules and look for­ward to the BRC re­turn­ing to the Mid Wales Stages in New­town on March 4-6, 2017. Please put the dates in your di­aries. We look for­ward to wel­com­ing you all back. Chris Tom­ley Clerk of the course Mid Wales Stages 2016
