Sixty and Worcestershire Motor Club regret to announce the Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally, scheduled to run on 5th September 2020 will not go ahead due to uncertainties surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Ludlow based event is a qualifying round of a host of national championships including the MRF Tyres BTRDA Rally Series, Pirelli Motorsport UK Welsh Rally Championship and Seacon UK English Rally Championship and is regarded as one of the most popular events on the British rallying calendar.
The event organising team have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation and had been in the advanced stages of planning for the event, with many tasks completed by officials from home due to the restrictions on travel and movements in Wales.
However, following the latest advice from the Welsh and UK Government and Motorsport UK, the sport’s governing body, the event committee has further reviewed the situation going forward.
With the sport posing a challenge when adhering to social distancing guidelines, and with the uncertainty of any other restrictions like access to forestry and venues, the decision has been made to cancel the rally for 2020.
Clerk of the Course Graham Hopewell said “It’s certainly with a heavy heart that Sixty and Worcestershire Motor Club have to announce that the Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally will not run this year.
“We have always said, that we would only proceed with this year’s event if, before the middle of July, we could be confident that the Covid risk had passed and we could be certain of running with no risk of cancellation, and with no risk to the health of competitors organisers and the local communities.
Although we are not quite at the middle of July, it has become increasingly evident that we are not going to be in that position, it is therefore with regret that we have reluctantly decided that we cannot proceed with the 2020 Woodpecker and will instead look forward to a stronger return in 2021. We would like to thank our sponsor Eventsigns for their unrivalled support, our partners and Championships for their understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone in Ludlow next year”.
Organisers have issued a provisional date of Saturday 4th September 2021 for next year’s running of the rally.
