Entries have opened for the 2019 ATL Carlisle Stages (Saturday 8 June), which brings together the FUCHS LUBRICANTS Motorsport UK British Historic Rally Championship and the Motoscope Northern Historic Rally Championship.
As well as catering for the two historic championships, the ATL Carlisle Stages will be an ideal event for those competing in modern cars, both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive. It is a round of the burgeoning Rally2 Challenge and the Border Challenge Championship.
All two-wheel-drive cars, both historic and modern, will run at the head of the field, with the two-wheel drive field running in reverse order to give the older and less powerful cars the very best road conditions.
In addition, the event is a perfect warm-up rally for the Roger Albert Clark Rally as the November rally will use stages in the same forest complex. The date also offers Scottish crews a rare chance to tackle these border stages. The rally will use 41 miles of top quality stages in the Kershope and Newcastleton complexes. None of the stages have been used since the 2018 Carlisle
Building on the success of the previous six editions of the Carlisle Stages, the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club will run a compact event based at H&H Auctions in Carlisle, next to junction 43 of the M6. Scrutineering will be held on Friday afternoon, with the rally starting at 8.30am on Saturday.
The ATL Carlisle Stages will be organised by the Roger Albert Clark Rally Motor Club.
