M-SPORT STAGES: ENTRIES OPEN WEDNESDAY

Entries for the M-Sport Return to Rally Stages will open at 12h00 BST on Wednesday 22 July 2020, and the Supplementary Regulations are now available here on the company website.

Limited to just 45 M-Sport designed and developed Ford Focus and Fiesta rally cars, the event is set to be a celebration of all things M-Sport whilst also acting as a prime example of how the UK can safely and responsibly return to rallying.

Taking place in Greystoke Forest on Saturday 22 August 2020, the event has been organised in conjunction with the West Cumbria and Eden Valley Motor Clubs and will run six timed stages across 38 competitive miles – all within the confines of the forest.

The service park will also be situated within the forest and, for the first time in the history of all Greystoke-based events, there will be a recce convoy on Friday evening – reminiscent of the legendary Mille Pistes of the early 1980s.

Further information and special announcements will be issued on the M-Sport website over the next month and, although no spectators will be permitted, fans can follow the action on the company’s social media platforms.

M-Sport Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:

“Entries for the M-Sport Stages will open on Wednesday and I’m looking forward to seeing who will be joining us next month. We’ve worked extremely hard over the past 20 years to provide a competitive Ford at all levels of rallying, and I’d like this event to celebrate that success – with as many different M-Sport cars as possible. But more than that, I’d like this event to reassure organisers and competitors that we can go rallying safely and responsibly in the current climate – getting our industry back on its feet and working towards everyone being able to enjoy this fantastic sport once again.”
