Motorsport North West can now confirm that they plan to run the Legend Fires North West Stages on Saturday 23rd March 2019, with a move to a new base in the Historic Lancashire market town of Garstang.

Following the change in the Road Traffic Act Legislation in 2017 the organisers took a year’s sabbatical to concentrate on the vast amount of work needed to pursue the possibility of a number of Closed Road Special Stages for the 2019 event. They are now pleased to announce that a an MSA permit has been issued which has allowed an application for a Motor Race Order to be submitted to the Local highways authority, Lancashire County Council.

Motorsport North West have worked closely with Wyre Council for a number of years having run Special Stages on the Council owned Fleetwood Waterfront in the past, so it made sense to seek their support for Closed Road Special Stages. It was at the Councils request that the base of the event has been moved into their Borough. Accordingly Central Service & scrutineering will be located at the Myerscough College, which is well known for their Motorsport Courses. Moving the base East still allows some of the traditional Area to be used, but opens up other possible options in the Lancashire Fells.

A tremendous amount of work has already been done and there are still numerous hurdles to overcome, but subject to securing the Motor Race Order, it is planned to use a combination of Closed Public Roads and Private venues for the Special Stages, giving approx 50 stage miles in total.
