The 2017 Trackrod Rally Yorkshire is to move to the seaside resort of Filey.

The county’s biggest and most diverse car rally, on September 29th/30th, will be based in and around the historic east coast town where the two-day event will finish with a ceremonial awards presentation during Saturday afternoon.

It will be a welcome return to the North Yorkshire coast and will feature a vast array of vehicles from the sixties to the present day. As in recent years, the Rally Yorkshire comprises two events – The Trackrod Historic Cup over six stages and covering approximately 55 competitive miles, and the Trackrod Forest Stages, with five stages and a total mileage of around 45 miles.

Scrutineering of the rally cars (checking for safety and conformity) will take place in Filey with Rally HQ and documentation located at the Evron Centre.

The Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship cars will start to assemble for spectators to view and competitors to sign autographs, late Friday afternoon before being flagged away for a challenging forest stage in the Dalby complex.

On Saturday morning, the historic section of the field will be joined by a wide range of competitors from the RAVENOL BTRDA Rally Series and the Maxxis MSA English Rally Championship. They are then due to enter the North York Moors forests for two sets of two different stages with central servicing, concluding with a final and potentially decisive 10-mile stage. There will be NO double use stages on Saturday.

Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, stressed: “We are delighted to bring the colour and spectacle of our event to Filey and are thrilled at the help and support we have received from the local council and businesses in the area.”
