Sheffield & Hallamshire Leconfield event – co-driver wanted – 1 May 2022

From John Dixon:

As I appear to have secured a run on the Sheffield and Hallamshire  Leconfield event (May 1st), I now require a co- driver, Qualifications in order of importance,

1)            A sense of humour,
2)            Current safety kit, overalls helmet HANS, etc. and licence,
3)            Know left from right (your way, my way, might do),

Still lots to do to car still working on it, need to sort car passport, etc., so a start is not 100% certain but thought I would put request out now.

Many thanks,
John Dixon.

NHMC Warcop Stages 2022 – 17 April 2022 – CANCELLED

North Humberside Motor Club Limited regrets to announce the cancellation of the 2022 NHMC Warcop Stages Rally which was scheduled for Easter Sunday, 17th April 2022.

Following the unexpected death just before Christmas of Gavin Heseltine, a key member of our organising team, we have looked carefully at our manpower to run this event. In addition to the loss of Gavin, another key member of the team is not available this Easter and two other members of the team are unlikely to be available because of work commitments.

This leaves us too short of senior organisers to be able to promote an event of the quality we always strive to provide and we have decided it is better to cancel than to run a sub-standard event.

We plan to run the NHMC Warcop Stages on Easter Sunday 2023.

John Overend Memorial Stages Rally/Melbourne Junior Rally – entries open at 20:00 on 29 April

North Humberside Motor Club Ltd announce entries will open at 20:00 on Thursday 29th April 2021 for the John Overend Memorial Stages Rally and the Melbourne Junior Rally at Melbourne airfield near York (30th May 2021).

Following our recent surveys of the venue, we find that due to additional work taking place and planned repairs of winter frost damage not having been completed we do not expect to be able to run more than 30 miles, unfortunately this does not reduce the event costs.
