OR­GAN­ISER’S STATE­MENT

Motor Sport News - - Rally News - Alyn Ed­wards Clerk of Course Cambrian Rally

On be­half of North Wales Car Club and the or­gan­is­ing team of the Cambrian, I would like to ex­press our heart­felt thanks to all the mar­shals, ra­dio crews, Safety/med­i­cal crews, re­cov­ery teams, and the car park op­er­a­tors who braved and bat­tled the weather to get to their po­si­tions on SS1 to en­able us to run the stage in such ter­ri­ble con­di­tions.

We would also like to thank ev­ery­one that at­tempted to reach their po­si­tions on SS2 and SS3, and not for­get­ting all the other mar­shals at the other venues of the event. Un­for­tu­nately the weather beat us and the snow and sheet ice pre­vented you from achiev­ing your goal and en­abling us to run the stages.

The de­ci­sion to can­cel/aban­don the event was not an easy one and one that was not taken lightly, but with a lot of sad­ness af­ter all we had been through over the past few weeks, just to get it on this year, what with a can­celled event three weeks ago, then the route re­design. The team did a bril­liant job of pulling it to­gether.

The team re­sponded and acted in a to­tally dedicated and pro­fes­sional way, us­ing their years of ex­pe­ri­enced to gather the in­for­ma­tion for me with­out hes­i­ta­tion, but with their to­tal sup­port and quick and prompt re­sponse I was able to make an in­formed de­ci­sion about the safe run­ning of the event. The de­ci­sion was sup­ported by the MSA Stew­ard and the MSA Del­e­gate.

To the team, a big thank you, for with­out your sup­port I could not make the de­ci­sions that were re­quired.

In the en­vi­ron­ment that we cur­rently live in, we as or­gan­is­ers must act in a re­spon­si­ble man­ner, with due care for our com­peti­tors, mar­shals and spec­ta­tors, mak­ing the cor­rect de­ci­sions to en­sure we have a safe event so that mo­tor­sport may con­tinue in the form that we all en­joy in the UK. Some­times we have to make de­ci­sions that will not al­ways meet the ap­proval of all.
