2018 ALMC Stages Rally - NOT GOING AHEAD

Posted: December 8, 2017 10:27 AM

"It is with regret that the Directors and Organising team of ALMC Motor Club announce that it will not be running the Stages Rally event on the 15th July 2018.

In the original draft “reduced calendar” ALMC sought an alternative date to minimise the impact on the July date the club has endured over the past three years of too many rallies in the early June to end of July period. As this has not been an option, with the postponement of the implementation of the rallies committee plan, we have had to reconsider our options.

Following our AGM on Wednesday 6th December, the incoming Committee and Directors have opted to take a year out from our Stages Rally. This has not been an easy decision, as the Club has been organising the annual event since 1984.

Despite enthusiastic and committed sponsors being on board, a gap in finances still existed, which together with uncertainty in competitors’ commitments to rallying in 2018, meant that the decision to cancel at this point in time was the right one. Announcing the decision at this stage will enable Championship organisers, loyal competitors and all stakeholders to make alternative arrangements for 2018.

We believe it is in the best interest of the Club and its members in this difficult motorsport and financial environment. The team will concentrate their efforts to continuously support motorsport in 2018 and work towards the return of the Stages Rally in 2019.

For and on Behalf of Board of Directors
