Regulations published for Trackrod Rally Yorkshire

Posted: August 3, 2017 12:24 PM

Regulations will be published by Friday 11 August for the Trackrod Rally Yorkshire on September 29/30.  

The Filey-based rally will be final round of both the RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series and the Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship, as well as a round of several regional championships. Entries will open when the regulations are published and there is expected to be strong demand for places on the popular rally.  

As in recent years, Rally Yorkshire comprises two events: the Trackrod Historic Cup will run over six stages and cover approximately 55 competitive miles on Friday evening and Saturday, while the Trackrod Forest Stages, with five stages and a total mileage of around 45 miles, will run on Saturday.  

Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, said:
“We’re delighted to report that the forest stages are in exceptionally good condition. We’ve worked closely with the North Yorkshire Moors Forestry Commission and the stages have received considerable work since last year.  

“Everyone in rallying is delighted that Rally4Wales is really improving the Welsh stages, but the Forestry Commission is doing an excellent job in Yorkshire. With two months to go to the rally, the stages are in fantastic condition. There has also been work done to allow more spectator access to the stages.”  

Regulations and on-line entries will be available from the event website by Friday 11 August, link below.

Single use bonanza for Trackrod Rally

Posted: July 14, 2017 9:01 AM

Competitors on the Trackrod Rally Yorkshire (September 29/30) will enjoy one of the highest percentages of single usage rallying on a UK forest event in 2017.

The route for Saturday’s Trackrod Forest Stages, for contenders in the RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series and the Maxxis MSA English Rally Championship, contains no double-usage of forest roads as the event covers 45 miles of stages in the famous Yorkshire forests.

Meanwhile, the Trackrod Historic Cup will start with a 10-mile stage in the darkness of Friday evening before following the same 45-mile route on Saturday. This year’s rally will be based in the historic East Coast town of Filey with the two-day event finishing with a ceremonial awards presentation during Saturday afternoon.

Scrutineering will take place in Filey with Rally HQ and documentation located at the Evron Centre. The Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship cars will start late on Friday afternoon for a challenging forest stage in the Dalby complex.

On Saturday morning, the historic section of the field will be joined by competitors from the Trackrod Forest Stages for two sets of two different stages with central servicing, concluding with a final 10-mile stage.

Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, said:
“Double usage of forest stages is common nowadays, but we remain committed to delivering the best roads possible for our competitors. I’m delighted to confirm that, once again, there will be no double use during Saturday as competitors tackle 45 miles of prime Yorkshire forest stages.”

Rally coasts into new sea-side setting

The county’s biggest and most diverse rally, Trackrod Rally Yorkshire on September 29/30, will be based in and around the historic East Coast town of Filey with the two-day event finishing with a ceremonial awards presentation during Saturday afternoon.

It will be a welcome return to the Yorkshire coast for the rally, which features a vast array of cars from the 1960s to the present day. As in recent years, Rally Yorkshire comprises two events: the Trackrod Historic Cup over six stages and covering approximately 55 competitive miles, and the Trackrod Forest Stages, with five stages and a total mileage of around 45 miles.

Scrutineering of the rally cars will take place in Filey with Rally HQ and documentation located at the Evron Centre. The Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship cars will start to assemble, for spectators to view and competitors to sign autographs, late on Friday afternoon before being flagged away for a challenging forest stage in the Dalby complex.

On Saturday morning, the historic section of the field will be joined by a wide range of competitors from the RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series and the Maxxis MSA English Rally Championship. Competitors are then due to enter the North York Moors forests for two sets of two different stages with central servicing, concluding with a final and potentially decisive 10-mile stage. There will be no double use stages on Saturday.

Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, said:
“We are delighted to bring the colour and spectacle of rallying to Filey and are thrilled at the help and support we have received from the local Council and businesses in the area.”
