The Legend Fires North West Stages Rally returned last Friday/Saturday 22/23rd March after a years break.
The event was the first ever closed road special stages event in the north of England and was something special. With a quality entry of 120 cars, 50 stage miles and 12 stages on some fantastic roads it was a thoroughly enjoyable day of rallying.
As usual the Lancashire Automobile Club has played an important part in the safe running of the event with not only our regular marshals out on the event but also in the events organisation. The LAC team was at Staynall covering two sectors and by all accounts had a busy but never the less enjoyable day.
The event comprised of both spectator and non spectator stages around the Fylde and Lancaster. The ceremonial start was on the Friday evening in Garstang where cars were on show before taking their place on the starting ramp.
The event itself was centred on Myerscough College where the Saturday start, major servicing and finish were held. Spectator stages were at Staynall (Stalmine) and Nick Nook (Scorton). Each stage was used three times throughout the day so there was plenty of opportunities to see all the cars and possibly move to the other spectator stage.
