Lookout Stages Rally 2018 Cancellation
It is with great regret that we have to cancel the Lookout Stages Rally 2018, due to the extensive work being undertaken at the Melbourne Airfield.
We will be back in 2019 offering an even better event and stages you’ve never seen before.
Joint Press Release 12th March 2018
Trackrod Motor Club – Lookout Stages
North Humberside Motor Club – John Overend Memorial Stage Rally
Lindholme & Slaithwaite Motor Clubs – Vale of York Stage Rally
There is presently extensive work being undertaken at the Melbourne Airfield site which is taking
longer than anticipated and unfortunately is still ongoing. Following lengthy discussions with the
landowner, all four motor clubs involved in organising the three Stage Rally events held at
Melbourne have made a joint decision not to run any of these events during 2018 but instead to
invest their time and efforts into carrying out further venue improvements during the course of the
Considerable investment in terms of finances and time is being put into the venue by both the
landowner and the motor clubs to safeguard the venue for future rally use and to offer significantly
better and smoother surfaces to rally on. We would also acknowledge the assistance of the MSA,
both for past and hopefully future funding for venue improvements.
We are planning to re-launch all the events in 2019 with the Lookout Stages provisionally pencilled
in for early April.
We regret the necessity to cancel this year’s Lookout, John Overend Memorial and Vale of York
events particularly so close to the first event but fully intend to return to offer enhanced events in
2019. All entry fees received for this year’s Lookout Stages Rally will be fully refunded.
