Welcome back to the Clitheronian Rally in its 16th year of running with the current organising team.

On that note, Steve and myself would like to announce that this will be our final year as organisers and would like to thank all those who have competed on the Clitheronian over the years for their support. We hope we’ve managed to put on a good show for you. We would also like to thank all our fellow club members and also those from other clubs who have helped organise the event and without whom it simply would not happen.

This year the event is again being run under an Interclub Road Rally permit, with straightforward navigation in the form of six figure grid references with ample time to plot. As ever, we aim to provide you with some no-nonsense rallying on great roads. This year the start is once again Blackburn services using maps 102 and 103 over approximately 147 miles of classic, 100% tarmac roads that will be familiar to many competitors, but still challenging nonetheless.

We look forward to presenting all classes of competitor with a great night’s motor sport. Enjoy!

I would like to welcome you all again to this year’s Primrose Trophy Rally, organised by Clitheroe and District Motor Club. This is one of the club’s oldest events, which was resurrected back in 2014. Building on the success of previous years, we hope we can provide a good night’s sport once again.

This year’s route uses maps 97, 98, 102 and 103 and for the first time, includes a small amount of unsurfaced ‘whites’ totalling only 2 miles. Unlike in previous years and all new for this year, the event will use a pre plot format. This therefore means that the event route instructions will be given in enough time for the crew to plot the event before the start of any competition. This new format will provide an equal challenge for the novice and experienced competitors alike while giving everyone an enjoyable night’s entertainment.

I look forward to receiving your entries. See you on the night!

Matthew Hewlett – Clerk of the Course

The Clitheroe and Airedale and Pennine Motor Clubs have combined to bring you a Targa Rally, based at the Gisburn Auction Mart, aimed firmly at beginners and experienced competitors alike.

The route will comprise of a total of approximately 140, with a route based on the Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger maps 97, 98 and 103. These maps are useful to have but not essential as the route is by road book. The competitive part of the event will consist of the test sections on private land only.

The entry list opens on 26th June 2021 at 18:00 and closes finally on 23rd July 2021. The entry fee is £160.00 and this will include tea/coffee and bacon sandwiches at the start, two light snacks at lunch time and two meals at the finish.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to all the team for all their hard work on the Hall Trophy. A challenging event to organise in these current times. Much learnt for the Clitheronian. Maurice Ellison (Chief Marshal). Great job.

To Wastebusters for sponsoring the event. Tony Harrison for the start venue.

Too many names back in the club to mention. But you all know who you are. We do work well together as a club. Thank you.

I would also like to thank all the Marshals for giving us your valuable time. Without whom we could not do what we do.

To the competitors for showing your support to this new event. I hope you all enjoyed it regardless of how your night went?

Well done to Louis Baines and Niall Frost on a well deserved win.

Commiserations to those who just missed out and hope to see you all again next year.

Jack Neal Memorial Rally cancellation...

Jack Neal Memorial Rally 2020
Sat 1st Feb 2020

Clitheroe and District Motor Club are sad to announce that the Jack Neal Memorial Rally scheduled for the 1st Feb has been cancelled. This is because of a £4500 increase in cost plus whilst we will no longer have the use of the grain store or briefing room.

Having considered it, we have come to the conclusion the venue is no longer viable.

It is a shame that the new management has taken this view, after over 10 years of building up the two events to be popular and well attended. That said we have to respect their decision. I believe that other clubs have had the same issue with there events.

I think now is a good time to recognise others involved in this event. Bruce Lindsay for coming up with the concept all those years ago, Steve Lewis for being the next Clerk, Maurice Ellison for being involved in all of them in one form or another, usually as Chief Marshal. Heidi and now Katie as Secretary and all the volunteers over the years who have made the events happen, thanks to you all.

The Jack Neal is not lost, I owe it to Jack to ensure it continues in one form or another.

We welcome PD Extinguishers as title sponsor of the 2019 Hall Trophy Rally - approx. 40 stages miles of smooth tarmac at Blyton Park Driving Centre.

Well done to those that made the PD Extinguishers Hall Trophy 2019 a success. Competitors, marshals, caterers (Brendas pie), the TEAM!

The weather made it a challenge being a soggy one (made a change from freezing to death though). A small team worked hard throughout the weekend finishing off on Sunday with the big track clean up. Team spirit and great fun had by all. Back to work for a rest!

Legend Fires North West Stages thankyous...
Sat 23rd March

I want to say a massive thank you to all of the marshals and officials that made the Nicky Nook stage a possibility today. I think it's fair to say it's been a pretty steep learning curve for all those involved, but we ended up with a stage to be proud of.... Read Matt's full thankyou on CDMC Facebook page.

Matthew Broadbent – Deputy Stage Commander

...I just want to thank you all for your magnificent efforts on Saturday, to marshal the Nicky Nook stage, which had the bulk of the 1,000s of spectators that attended the event, as only one other stage had a single viewing area. I know that it is an old adage but without marshals, there simply would not be any rallying and I haven't had one single complaint reported to me... Read Ken's full thankyou on CDMC Facebook page.

Ken Wilkinson - Nicky Nook Chief Marshal

...Then we have over 650 volunteers who worked on the day, not just out on the stages but in the back rooms as well, Safety Team, Radio, Rescue, Results, Set-up teams, Timing, Marshals, Commentators, Car park staff, programme sellers, etc... Read Dave's full thankyou on LFNWS Facebook page.
