Darlington and District Motor Club wish to announce that regulations will be available on Wednesday 6th December 2017 for the Jack Frost Stages Rally in association with Cartersport which will take Graeme Bellplace at Croft Circuit on Sunday 21st January 2018.

The 19th annual running of the event will again comprise up to eight stages totalling around 40 stage miles on the asphalt of the North East’s only permanent racetrack and is a qualifying round of a number of local championships.

With typically fast and flowing stages around the racetrack and perimeter roads, the event usually attracts a capacity 90-car entry and is expected to fill quickly once entries open with many leading drivers, including last year’s winners from nearby Northallerton, Graeme Bell and Russ Radford, tackling the wintry conditions which usually prevail.

Competitors are reminded that Northallerton Automobile Club’s Swift Signs Christmas Stages Rally, which also takes place at Croft Circuit on Sunday 30th December 2017, filled up very quickly, so demand is expected to be high

The maximum entry is 90 cars with the minimum being 65 where the first 80 will be accepted upon receipt and payment, with a further ten being allocated at the organiser’s discretion.

The entry for the 2018 Jack Frost Stages in association with Cartersport will go live at 19.30 on 6th December 2017 but must be fully paid to be considered valid.

Details regarding the event can be found at

Information on scrutineering and documentation will be included in the regulations as well as details on classes and entry fees. The closing date is 11th January 2018.
