Posted: January 15, 2021 12:34 PM

It is with regret that event organisers, The 63 Car Club (Elgin) Ltd, announce the cancellation of the 2020 McDonald & Munro Speyside Stages Rally, due to be held on Saturday 18th April, as a result of public safety concerns around the global pandemic of COVID?19 (Coronavirus) With the on?going situation regarding the COVID?19 illness changing every day – together with the latest Scottish Government advice on mass gatherings ? event organisers were left with no other option but to cancel the event. The club have not taken this decision lightly, but the health and safety of all competitors, volunteers and the general public must be the priority at these concerning times.

Neil Shanks, event clerk of the course, commented;
“Whilst as a club we are disappointed to take this course of action, we feel that we have a responsibility to all of our event volunteers, competitors, sponsors & partners to remove any uncertainty with a firm decision in good time. We would like to thank everyone for their support of this years event.

With a busy event calendar in the period where we will hopefully see things returning to normal, the club have decided the cancellation, and not postponement is the most responsible course of action, and we will focus our efforts on our 2021 event.

The club will work to refund all entry fees in full, along with sponsorship monies paid, as soon as possible”.

Miguel Gomez, of event sponsors McDonald & Munro added;
“We fully support the decision that Neil and his team have reached, these are unprecedented & uncertain times for us all, and safety has to be the top priority for everyone. We too look forward to 2021 when the event will return better than ever”.

The club have the full support of their partners, and the organisers and sponsors of the KNC Groundworks Scottish Rally Championship, of which the event was due to be the second round.
