    SATURDAY 9th DECEMBER 2006.

    The event will also return to its usual format with 1st car leaving the start in Coniston at 09:30hrs, with the last car due to finish before darkness.

    A number of factors have prompted the organisers to make this decision, but primarily the relative lack of entries to date. The major factor in competitors not entering would appear to be the unpopularity of the original November date, maybe combined with running partially in the dark.

    We are currently running at 30% of last years' entries. With around 3 weeks to the closing date, we might still receive enough entries to make it viable. However, the organisers felt that the consequences of not reaching that number - and with costs for forest rallying as they are, it's a high number! - means that it is better to be pro-active and offer everyone plenty of notice of a change.

    We don't want cancel the event, that risks losing this rally in the longer term, one of only two stage events in the National Park. Hopefully this change will suit the plans of a good number of competitors.

    The change of date for 2006, away from it's traditional first week in December, was prompted by a clash of dates with Rally GB, leaving Grizedale Stages short of mandatory key personnel. Ironically the event wouldn't have got started without running on the back of the Rally GB (or RAC Rally as it was then) back in 1988!! When we opted for the November date back in February this year, the 9th was ruled out as an option due a date clash. That event has also now moved, free-ing up the 9th December for us to be able to use.

    Most things remain unchanged from the event originally planned; The route and mileages remain the same; 42 stage miles and 35 road miles. Entry fee @ £350. Central servicing and scrutineering at Park Coppice, just outside the host town of Coniston. The main change is the start moving forward to 09:30hrs. Last car due to finish at 15:53hrs. Revised regulations and entry form are available from the website. The online entry system is also still available. Competitors who have already entered have already been offered guaranteed places on the new date or full refunds.

    now there is a thought. We need a car with good ground clearance to clear all those ruts and holes on the forest stage. Andy's (Mcscoobydoo) would be perfect :!: :!: :!: well we can always ask them to tarmac it first. :D

    Sounds like we could actually have a good turnout.
