Myerscough College is once again providing its extensive facilities for the 2024 event. The choice of the College for the rally headquarters is a no-brainer as geographically it’s adjacent to the Garstang town centre ceremonial start and finish, and it is close to the Saturday action making it the ideal location for central servicing.
The College boasts a rally heritage having a long-established motorsport department with stage rallying a core element of their activities and a number of lecturers having strong links to the sport. It has long established links with a number of Lancashire based Motor Clubs who have been instrumental in the organising of the event for many years.
By bringing the rally to Myerscough and engaging with staff and students, that in itself provides valuable educational benefits providing first-hand experience of the running of a major motorsport event. All in all, it’s a win, win scenario for both the College and the rally organisers.
Legislation allowing closed road motorsport in England Wales came into being in April 2017 and organisers of the Legend Fires North West Stages were quick to take advantage of the rule changes for their 2019 event.
The rally name was re-branded as the Legend Fires North West Stages Rally in partnership with Simpsons Skoda and was run over a mix of closed public roads and private property. Retaining that title, the 2024 event will be run entirely over closed public highways and feature 65 miles of high speed action spread over 11 special stages.
Following on from the success of the Friday night ceremonial start the 2024 event will not only get underway with a civic send-off from Garstang’s High Street but return there late on Saturday afternoon for a champagne finish. The rally organisers are grateful for the support and enthusiasm shown by Garstang Town Council in allowing this innovative and spectator friendly feature of the rally to expand.
