Rally of the Tests – 5 November 2021

From Ian Sadofsky:

The next Targa Rally that North Humberside Motor Club is involved with is the Annual Rally of the Tests. This is one of the big events organised by HERO/ ERA and to date has an entry of over 70 cars.

We have been asked to run 2 tests on Tockwith Airfield near Tadcaster, west of York on Friday 5th November.

First car is provisionally due at 12.00, so a sociable time and fairly nearby.

Further info is on the HERO events web site.

If you can marshal on this event please let me know along with numbers in your team.


Malton Forest Rally – 7 November 2021

From John Newlove:

Although I have not seen any information I understand that the Malton Forest Rally will be going ahead on the 7th November.

We usually help Elizabeth on Gale Rigg, I have asked her for some details.

Chris Andrews who ran Langdale on Rally Yorkshire is also running Langdale on Malton and has also asked for help.

Please let me know if you are available and which stage you would like to volunteer for.

I will send out more details when I have them

This rescheduled event is this Saturday, 28th, in Bowling Park, Bradford, and is now running with, (so they say) a permit, and Steve Smith as C/C.
They would like some more marshals to assist from about 08:30, entry on Bowling Hall Rd, that’s not far from the top of the M606.

It does sound like a good day out, so have a look at :-   https://whatson.bradford.gov.uk/lombard-rally-festival-bradford/

If you could help out for a few hours, then please just turn up on Saturday.  I am sorry this is such short notice, but I only heard about it yesterday, and with two rallies also this weekend, they are going to be short.


If you need me urgently please ring the mobile as I do not live on my computer. Thanks.

Can you please circulate a further email please.

I wrote earlier about the Vale of York Stages. We are still trying to recruit both marshals and radio crews. We are looking a bit thin on the ground at the moment, September looks very busy already and I understand that some may be reluctant to come out given recent events and indeed some of you may have decided that this is an opportune time to reconsider the silliness of early starts to stand in the middle of a draughty airfield.

Good Evening,

I appreciate that radio/marshal requests have been a bit scarce from me for the past 12 months! Hopefully things are beginning to get back closer to normal and I might be able to see/speak to some of you soon.

I have a couple of requests if you fancy a day out! Continue reading “Wearside Classic (5 Sep), Cheviot Stages (24 Oct), Roger Albert Clark Rally (November)”

Maurice Colley RIP – Funeral Arrangements

From Robert Newlove:

I have been asked to send out the funeral arrangements for Maurice.

Funeral arrangements are as follows:

Thursday 26th August at 1.30pm Chanterlands Crematorium in the large chapel.

There will not be a wake afterwards due to Valerie recovering from a major operation and currently undergoing chemotherapy. She has been advised not to mix closely with people due of course to Covid.
