North West Stages Rally – Thank You!

North West Stages Rally: Thank You

Many thanks to all members of the Liverpool MC “rally stage team” who helped with the Weeton Stages of the North West Stages Rally yesterday. You all did an excellent job despite the odd electronic glitch and the occasional errors of navigation by the crews. What a great day, and for the first time for ages, the event was dry! Shame about the delayed finish… we trust that those waiting at home weren’t too upset by your late return.

The full results can be found here

Liverpool Motor Club is helping to run a stage on the exciting Legend Fires North West Stages Rally on 23rd March at Weeton Army Barracks, not far from Blackpool.

The Rally is the premier multi-venue Tarmac event in the North West, and is based at Myerscough College, where there’s a fantastic Rally Show on the Friday of the event. This year’s event will include the first “closed road” stages in the North West, so spectator interest is expected to be very high.

There’s a fantastic variety of cars taking part from the top ex-WRC cars to local club drivers in home built near-standard road cars.

As in previous years, we shall be concentrating our efforts on running the flying finish & stop line for Saturday’s 6 stages at Weeton where our services are much in demand as we have developed an excellent reputation for efficiency. If there are enough volunteers, we will; be able to look after a nearby corner or two as well.

If you would like to come along and help at this non-spectator venue (and previous experience is not required), please contact our Rallies Coordinator, Geoff Maine, and he will let you have more details.   Just click here to be taken to our Contact Us page where you can send him a secure message, or phone him on 0151 521 5060 (he works shifts so please be patient!).

You can get a flavour of the rally via the promotional Video here

Tour of Cheshire – Thank you

January 18th, 2019 • By: Chairman Events, News

Knutsford & District Motor Club has asked me to pass on its thanks to everyone who helped at Bolesworth for Tour of Cheshire on 23nd March. See HERE for the Tour of Cheshire results: www.tourofcheshire.co.uk/start_order.html

You certainly upheld the highly regarded name that LMC has for doing a great job on events and I hope you enjoyed your visit (despite the few drops of rain right at the end of the day). I hope you will join us again for our Aintree or Barbon events, or one of the days when we are helping other clubs by providing marshals to help run their events.

Please keep an eye on the announcements on our home page, or see our Club Calendar page for other events that we are involved with this year.
Thanks again,  John Harden, LMC Chairman


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.
