Please can I check if the Wethersfield Stages is running this year?
Yes. It's on 8th September and as part of our development strategy for local motor clubs will be run by a consortium of clubs under an Anglia Motor Sports Club permit, as all targa rallies in the region are.
Regs should be published by early July, with entries open soon after.
The Wethersfield Stages organising team are currently considering a date change to the 22nd September due to the closed road stage rallies which look like they will go ahead on the weekend of the 7th/8th.
I think the AEMC championship organiser was supposed to have been informed by now!
Probably not a bad thing if the date is changed for the weathersfield stage rally , as that weekend is the three shires on the Saturday and the Welsh closed road stage rally on the Sunday , surely there is only a Certain number of competitors and marshals to go round.
The coordinator of the Jelf Motorsport.com Stage Rally Championship has not been informed of the proposed date change (although I did hear a rumour very late last week). 22nd Sept was the date originally proposed (and briefly publicised by me until I was informed that 8th Sept was favoured) and it makes sense to revert to it. The chamipionship calendar can be amended if no registered contenders object to the change. If the change is confirmed I'll send out a change request in the post Abingdon CAR-nival Stages bulletin.
Whistling in the background...........
Seems to be 8th here now ...
... so is that confirmed? Good for me if so as I’d be struggling to make 22nd.
Yes, it is going to be on the 8th September.
Entries will open on the 8th July.
Good news indeed, as on the 22nd most of the normal Stop Line crew will be in Ypres !
