The organisers of the West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C Rally Championship have given 100% backing to the decision to postpone the Red Kite Stages due to heavy snow. Championship manager Colin Heppenstall has pledged to work with the team at Amman and District Motor Club over a revised date for the event.

With a foot of snow in the Welsh forests, Sunday’s rally (20 January) was rightly postponed as the organisers put the safety of competitors, officials and spectators first.

“We fully respect the decision made by the event organisers and appreciate the difficult decision they had to make,” said Heppenstall. “It is a massive disappointment that the British weather has intervened and after so much hard work by the Red Kite team.”

Heppenstall also confirmed that the championship team will work with the organisers over a revised date for the rally later in the year. “We are fully behind the event and the organisers,” he said. “The next step is that we need to speak to all registered championship contenders and the MSA about a new date.”
