Plans for the Severn Valley Stages gather pace
Over 100 crews are expected to contest some of the best stages in the country during May as the Severn Valley Stages welcomes crews from a wide mix of nationwide rally championships to its Powys base in Builth Wells. The 30th May event is the 42nd running of this popular multi-venue forest rally and is proud to be a round of the Mintex MSA British Historic Rally Championship; the Pirelli MSA Welsh Rally Championship; and the West Wales Rally Spares R.A.C. Rally Championship.
Members of the Severn Valley Stages Organising Team will head to the Mid Wales Stages at the end of February to meet and chat to competitors ahead of launching the Regulations in early March.
The friendly and experienced team have worked hard to ensure the event appeals to a wide range of competitors. With incentives such as a full refund if competitors withdraw their entry by 18th May, three easy entry payment solutions and Saturday scrutineering available to ease travelling costs, the team believe they have created a cost effective and popular format.
The unrivalled facilities of the Royal Welsh Showground will provide a central hub for the event, with Rally HQ; pre-event scrutineering and documentation; start and finish; and centralised service area all taking place at the Builth Wells arena. Competitors will head out from the Showground to tackle 45 competitive miles in the forests of Cefn; Crychan; Halfway and Gwibedog. These classic Welsh stages will be linked by just 83 road miles ensuring the event remains a cost effective proposition for all competitors.
Joint Clerks of the Course Chris & Keith Ashley have been working hard behind the scenes to ensure that competitors have some of the best stages that any event can offer this year. “We have been working closely with the engineers from Natural Resources Wales and the MOD to make sure the stages are in pristine condition ahead of our visit in May. We know competitors love these stages and our aim is to provide them with a great day of competitive motorsport that marshals and fans love to watch” said Chris.
Event regulations will be available in early March and information will be published closer to the event at www.severnvalleystages.co.uk
