Bolton-Le-Moors Car Club is delighted to announce that the Neil Howard Stages in association with Graham Coffey & Co. Solicitors will feature 24 extra crews, and become a round of the 2021 British Rally Championship.
Following the postponement of the event in November 2020, the event will now take place on 31st May 2021.
With the event taking place following the third relaxation of restrictions, the organisers – Bolton-Le-Moors Car Club, the MSN Circuit Rally Championship and the British Rally Championship have teamed up to give a much needed boost to British rallying.
Event organisers, Bolton-Le-Moors Car Club, have rejigged the stages to ensure more competitors can access the stages. Due to this, the rally will revert from 9 stages to 8 stages. The last stage, which normally takes place in the dark in November, will decrease milage by just 2 miles, but increase capacity to the event by 24 cars – up from 114 to 138.
In line with becoming a round of the 2021 British Rally Championship, 20 of these extra places will be reserved for BRC competitors. The remaining will be used to bring in more MSN Circuit Rally Championship competitors, with priority given to those already on the reserves list.
For the first 48 hours after re-opening 20 spaces will be allocated to BRC competitors the remaining number will then be allocated to MSN championship competitors if places remain after the 48 hour period these will be allocated in line with the event regulations.
Darren Spann, Clerk of the Course for the Neil Howard Stages said: “We are understandably delighted to be able to increase the number of competitors taking part in this year’s Neil Howard Stages, giving more a taste of the action, and ensure that we can support the British Rally Championship. This is absolutely the right thing to help restart rallying in the UK.”
Having been postponed in November 2020, The Neil Howard Stages In a/w Graham Coffey & Co. Solicitors will this take place on May 31st 2021, and once again feature as part of the MSN Circuit Rally Championship.
