Welcome to the Phil Price Memorial Woodpecker Rally supported for a second year by the Phil Price Rally School and Presteigne Tyre Services, celebrating the life of Phil Price, who set up and ran the Phil Price Rally School for 30 years until his untimely death in 2020.
We are very pleased to welcome for the second time the Motorsport UK Fuchs Lubricants British Historic Rally Championship along with long time Woodpecker supporters, the MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series, the Motorsport UK Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship, the Motorsport UK English Rally Championship, the IPS Paints Rally Challenge, the ANWCC Forest Stage Rally Championship and the West Wales Rally Spares HRCR Stage Masters Rally Challenge.
The Woodpecker will be based at Ludlow Racecourse for scrutineering on Friday evening and for service on Saturday. The 2023 Woodpecker will have a new look, using a mixture of classic English stages and new to the Woodpecker, Welsh stages Cwmysgawen and a Ceri stage lengthened by short sections of closed public roads.
We will again be running ALL 2WD cars first on the road in reverse seeded order followed by all 4WD cars seeded normally.
Finally there is the potential to save costs by camping at the racecourse, toilet and showering facilities are available.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ludlow for an enjoyable, successful and safe day of motorsport.
