Ral­ly­ing re­turns to Mal­lory with au­tumn date se­cured

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Ral­ly­ing will re­turn to Mal­lory Park this week­end for the first time since 2012.

The Eastham and Dis­trict Mo­tor Club has moved the Harold Palin Me­mo­rial Stages from Ful­beck to the Le­ices­ter­shire venue af­ter se­cur­ing an October date.

The club pre­vi­ously ran a rally at the track in Fe­bru­ary 2012 but snow back then caused chaos.

Clerk of the course John Hick­ling said: “We tried an event there in Fe­bru­ary 2012 and of course it snowed. We’re look­ing for­ward to an event with good weather.

“The Harold Palin Me­mo­rial Stages is an es­tab­lished event that al­ways runs on the first or sec­ond week­end of October. I ap­proached Mal­lory and said ‘I want to run an event here’ and they were very en­thu­si­as­tic about hav­ing a rally there again.”

The event is a round of the ANEMMC Stage Rally Cham­pi­onship and the EMAMC Sin­gle Venue Stage Rally Cham­pi­onship.

A snow-free Harold Palin Me­mo­rial Rally will do nicely at Mal­lory Park
