2018 Date:    Grizedale Stages:  8th December 2018

Grizedale Stages Rally 2018.


After last years’ somewhat complicated 30th Anniversary event, we’ve plumped for something a bit more straightforward in 2018. No less of a challenge for you (or us) though.

Entries will be limited to 80 on a first-come-first-served basis because 1/ good stage conditions get maintained with only 80 cars 2/ we’ve found a way to make our rally viable with only 80 cars. You just need to get your entry in quickly.

Trailer park, Scrutineering and Signing-on will again be at Skelwith Fold, near Ambleside, on Friday afternoon/evening and early doors on Saturday. There will be the usual bouncers on the gate. Your entry fee allows you one service vehicle, one trailer and one competing car. Beyond that you will need to purchase additional passes.

We’re starting from Coniston village at 09:30hrs and it’s straight into a monster 17.2 miles of Grizedale. That’ll wake you up!! We have included ITP’s (Intermediate Timing Points) again which allows us to only lose a portion of the stage in the event of an incident requiring the stage to be stopped.

Then the route takes us back to Skelwith Fold for 30 minutes main service, followed by a 20-minute re-group. 

Whilst you head for Broughton Moor for a double run through Dunnerdale, your service crew can either head out to Auxiliary Service which follows the Broughton Moor stages, or they can spectate on the final stage in Grizedale. 

There are 5 spectator car parks, giving access to 10 different viewing areas. Details of these will be on the website from the beginning of November.

10 minutes Auxiliary Service (you’ll need to purchase a “Management Pack” to use Aux Serv) will be on the road section between Broughton Moor and Grizedale. The fourth and final stage will be a repeat of the 17.2 miles in Grizedale, run as Stage 1. 

First car is due back at MTC2 at Skelwith Fold at 13:47hrs having done 40 stage miles and 42 road miles. You can load up and head home, we can head to the pub.

So, all-in-all, it’s a more ‘normal-looking’ Grizedale Stages from the team; friendly faces, great stages and a cracking end-of-season celebration.
