Tour of Cheshire – Help Wanted (updated)

By Chairman • January 18th, 2019

On 2nd March we are running a section of the annual Tour of Cheshire rally, at Bolesworth Estate, 6 miles east of Chester. This will be the opening round of the Historic Rally Car Register (HRCR) championship and will have over 80 historic rally cars taking part.

We need around 20 marshals in the morning and again in the afternoon to look after the tests – can you help? There’s a variety of duties: start line marshals, finish line marshals (operating time clocks), route observers, & test marshals.

Image may contain: car, text and outdoor

This is a non-spectator venue, so the only way you’ll get to see what’s going on is to volunteer to marshal.

Previous experience isn’t necessary, nor orange overalls. Despite an early start, we had a great time running the tests at Bolesworth last year, no doubt helped by a pleasant lunch time visit to a local pub in Tattenhall Village.

The 2019 event is already full with 85 competitors, and reserves too. You can view the provisional entry list here.

For more information,
please contact our chief rally marshal, Geoff Maine via our Contact Us page.
