The organising team are again grateful to Peter Stephenson of ABLE UK for his continued sponsorship of the event, who this year is supported by Ripon Select Foods, returning as a sponsor of the event after a sabbatical of nine years, and for whose contribution we are equally grateful.  Several of our stage and venue sponsors are returning for a further year.

This year we are resting many of our traditional stages moving further East to include stages in the Cropton and Gale Rigg forests to provide approximately 40 stage miles.


Thirsk Auction Mart will once again be involved in the rally with documentation on the Saturday and the Sunday finish both being held there. This year the event will start in Helmsley allowing for a short run out to the first stage.


There will be one main service during the event, although management service will also be permitted on some road sections between stages. Each crew will be provided with one free service plate, management service plates may be purchased for use in the management service areas

Regulations are only available in electronic format from the event website.
