Organisers of the 2020 Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally would like to wish everyone the very best of health in these unusual times for us all.
Just a quick note to bring you up to date with our current position in regards to the event, planned for the 5th September.
The organising team are pressing ahead with the planning for September as normal, carrying out as many of the tasks that are possible from home.
The team have put together a route which will largely be based on popular stages used on recent Woodpeckers, this is in order to prevent the need to carry out surveys and site visits during these difficult times.
In order to mitigate any financial impact of a late cancellation on both the event and competitors, and to give all competitors, volunteers and officials suitable time to plan, the organising committee will make a final decision on running the event around 6 weeks prior to the rally, this will be based on the advice of Motorsport UK and the relevant authorities at the time.
We believe this would give us suitable time to be able to carry out the necessary groundwork, PR and site visits to run the rally effectively.
Our overriding concern is to protect the safety and well-being of all involved in the rally as well as the communities through which we run.
We will update our social media feeds and website with more information closer to the event.
In the meantime, please stay safe, stay home and look after yourselves.
