Subject: Marshals Please! – 2022 Rex Pet Hotel Flying Fortress Stages – Sunday 12th June

The 2022 Rex Pet Hotel Flying Fortress Stages is running on Sunday 12th June 2022.

Once again, the event is based at its unique venue, the former WW2 American 8th Air Force Base at Grafton Underwood (near Kettering in Northamptonshire) on the private estate of Boughton House.

This estate has very limited public access, spectators will not be permitted, and we are using some newly-discovered bits of the old airfield to keep the crews on their toes!

The event is a 2022 qualifying round of the

  • Clubman Motorsport EMAMC Stage Rally Championship,
  • Alpha Concrete ANEMMC Stage Rally Championship,
  • Marsh / Bluefin Sport Stage Rally Championship,
  • HRCR Mini Sport Cup and
  • Dukeries MC Championship.

There will be some 51 stage miles in 6 stages, the first car will start at 09.00, and the last car should finish around 17.00.

On-line entries opened 5th May and we expect a very full entry!

Marshals needed!

As always, we will need plenty of marshals (both with and without radios!) – to run the event successfully, so we hope you can come along and help us.

Marshals’ Documentation etc.

To make Sunday morning easier for everyone, we’re using the pre-event signing on system introduced during “The Covid Years”.
So, if you’re available and willing to help, please send me, ASAP :-

  • the marshal registration form (either for your group or as an individual) to help us allocate marshals appropriately.
  • the appropriate under-18 or over-18 official’s signing on sheet for each marshal.
  • a pic of each marshal’s 2022 Motorsport UK licence, if available (If you’ve recently sent me this for the Leconfield Stages, you don’t need to send it again)
  • If you’re organising a group, please forward these attachments to your team.

There will be no marshals signing-on or briefing at the event and all the necessary information including car passes, time schedule and stage plans will be sent out in advance of the event.
– so when you arrive on the day, we’ll just check you in and you can grab some marshals’ goodies
– In addition, each marshal will receive a voucher for a drink and a butty at the catering stand in the service area – further details to follow – then you can go straight to your post.


There will be Portaloos on site within the service area.
There will be catering facilities within the service area.
There will be NO spectators


Please send all correspondence, forms etc to me.

As usual, I’ve asked for wall-to-wall sunshine and a slight breeze to blow any dust away, so we look forward to seeing you at Grafton Underwood on Sunday 12th June 2022!
