Following the success of the 2017 event, Trackrod Rally Yorkshire (September 28/29) will return to the historic East Coast town of Filey with the two-day event finishing with a ceremonial awards presentation on the town’s elegant sea front during Saturday afternoon.

Billed as one of the county’s biggest and most diverse rally, Trackrod Rally Yorkshire will feature a vast array of cars from the 1960s to the present day. As in recent years, Rally Yorkshire comprises two events: the Trackrod Historic Cup covering approximately 57 competitive miles, and the Trackrod Forest Stages, with a competitive route of around 45 miles.

Scrutineering of the rally cars will take place in Filey with Rally HQ and documentation located at the Evron Centre. The FUCHS Lubricants MSA British Historic Rally Championship and Rally2 cars will assemble late on Friday afternoon, for spectators to view and competitors to sign autographs, before being flagged away for a challenging 12-mile forest stage in the Dalby complex. There will be no overnight parc ferme.

On Saturday morning the rally will start within the forest and the historic section of the field will be joined by a wide range of competitors from the Jordan Road Surfacing BTRDA Rally Series and the MAXXIS MSA English Rally Championship. Central servicing will be within the forest complex, thus ensuring low road mileage. There will be no double use stages and Saturday’s route in Dalby will be totally different to the stage used on Friday evening.

The event running order will follow the format used on the Carlisle Stages in June. On Friday evening, the historic and Rally2 crews will be split into two groups, with the first group reversed. On Saturday, the first group will be joined by suitable cars from the Trackrod Forest Stages, with the second part running in conventional order. Where possible, classes will be seeded together.

Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, said: “We are delighted to return to Filey with enthusiastic support from Filey Town Council, Scarborough, and Welcome to Yorkshire.

“We welcome the return of flexible seeding and also announce that the whole event has no double use (to be honest there is one mile used to access the Woodyard in Dalby on both Friday and Saturday). Hopefully more of the older historic and the low capacity 2WD cars will once again enjoy the thrill of the fabulous Yorkshire stages in prime condition.”
