Press release date: Monday 20 May 2019
Early details of the Trackrod Rally Yorkshire (September 27/28) have been announced, with an event focused on delivering first class road conditions for all competitors. Significantly, the event will run historics and all two-wheel drive cars first on the road.
The annual rally in the famous North Yorkshire forests will feature a compact route taking in all single-use stages on gravel roads that are reported to be in superb condition. For the crews contesting two major rally championships, this is the only visit of the season to the classic forest stages in the Dalby and Cropton forest complexes.
As has become tradition, the event will feature two key parts. The Trackrod Historic Cup will run over 56 stage miles as the final round of the FUCHS Lubricants MSA British Historic Rally Championship and a round of Northern Historic Rally Championship. The route will include one long stage in the darkness of Friday evening.
On Saturday, the Trackrod Forest Stages will cover a full 45 miles as the final round of the Jordan Road Surfacing BTRDA Rally Series and the MAXXIS Motorsport UK English Rally Championship.
Clerk of the Course Rod Parkin, from the organising Trackrod Motor Club, said: We are very pleased to outline the route plans for this year’s Trackrod Rally. We have got great stages in these famous forests and continue to offer the historic crews more mileage than most forest events. For the BTRDA crews, we have a full 45 stage miles in a traditional and very compact one-day format.
Regulations for the event will be published in the summer.
