Chelmsford Motor Club first started looking at the possibility of organising a Closed Road Rally almost 3 years ago when the Deregulation Act was going through parliament.
The Club approached Essex County Council initially who were supportive of the idea, they identified Tendring as an area to consider. We were not approached by anyone to look at running an event.
We have been working on this for the last 3 years and we are now in a Consultation Period with the County, District and Parish Councils along with The Motor Sports Association as to the feasibility of an event in the Clacton area sometime in 2018.
As you can imagine the discussions are challenging and will take some time.
We won’t comment any further at the moment but we hope to be able to make an announcement later on this year.
