Annual Auction – 2 May 2019

From Robert Newlove:

Just a reminder that our annual Auction of unwanted bits is next Thursday (2nd May), at the Ferguson Fawsitt. So sort out your rubbish (I mean very valuable parts), and bring them along. The start time is 9.0 p.m., so come a bit before that if you can. It’s worth coming just to see our entertaining Auctioneer Ken Hailstone .

Ilkley Historic and Targa Rally – 2 June 2019

From our Chief Marshal

I received this message via BDMC marshals list so thought I would pass it round.
It’s from Francesca, if you can help please reply to her at

I am looking for marshals for the upcoming Ilkley Historic and Targa Rally this year taking place on the 2nd June 2019.

The marshalling duties will be much the same as previous years, start/stop and in test marshalling to be covered. We do have some new and interesting venues this year and we will be starting the rally from new venue as well.

Please let me know if you are able to help at all, more details will follow closer to the time.

If you have any questions please let me know.
Kind Regards

Firstly thanks to everyone who has volunteered to come and marshal in whatever capacity on the JOMSR on 12th May at Melbourne. This is the 2nd event to be held on the venue after the improvements to the venue and a break from the event in 2018.

We have a good entry and are looking forward to a great event.

If you are available to help and have not contacted me previously I would be grateful if you could et me know if you can attend.

Autotest Practice / Taster Day – 28 April 2019

York Motor club  is running an autotest taster event on the sealed surface site at Acaster airfield. The event is open to non York motor club members. The event’s aim is to give anyone a chance to have a taste of autotesting without the pressure of entering a competition. It’s also a chance for the more experienced autotesters to have some practice. No competition licence required.

John Overend Memorial Stages Rally/Melbourne Junior Rally – 12 May 2019

From our Chief Marshal:

As you may know a lot of investment has been put in to Melbourne Airfield by the three clubs who run events on the venue.

That is Trackrod Motor Club, North Humberside Motor  Club, and Lindholme Motor Sports Club

This weekend saw the successful running of the 1st event on the venue after completion of the work

The second event in 2019 will be our John Overend Memorial Stages Rally and the Melbourne Junior Rally  on Sunday May 12th

I would be grateful for any offers to marshal in all specialities: Radios, Timekeepers, In-stage Marshals.

We would prefer that the majority of marshals were registered with Motorsport UK , however non registered marshals are still welcome and will be buddied up with other registered marshals
