Dukeries Motor Club can confirm that the date of the 2020 Dukeries Rally at Donington Park has been changed from 15th August to Sunday 6th December.

This change of date was necessary, partly because MSV instigated a radical calendar overhaul to try and accommodate the major UK motor racing championships that have lost the first 4 months of their season. [The British GT / Formula 3 championships are now scheduled for Donington Park on 15th / 16th August]. Also, the current Motorsport UK COVID 19 related guidelines do not yet permit stage rallying to recommence with a driver and co-driver, so it would not have been possible to run the Dukeries Rally on that August date. After discussions with MSV we were offered Sunday 6th December.

We are now contacting the various Regional Rally Championship organisers to inform them of this enforced date change, and we hope that they will be able to include the 61st Dukeries Rally as the final round of their 2020 calendars.

One effect of this date change is that the Dukeries Rally can now be included as Round 3 of the 2020/21 MSN Circuit Rally Championship in association with MSVR, with the Donington Rally scheduled for March 2021 continuing as the final round.
