The organisers of the Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest Rally Championship have announced that the award for the best Championship round of 2017 goes to the Eventsigns Woodpecker Stages Rally.
Making the announcement, Championship co-ordinator Dave Evison said, “Choosing the recipient gets harder every year with positive feedback from out competitors for all eight rounds of the series. The team from Sixty and Worcestershire Motor Club chose to ring the changes with their route last season and this award recognises the hard work they put in to make a success of their revised route.”
Responding to the announcement, Pete Wood, Clerk of the Course of the Woodpecker, said, “It was a great surprise to receive the award for a second year. We made a few changes to our route which went well with competitors. Hopefully we can continue keeping the competitors happy in 2018. We are really proud to receive the award and our thanks go to all Welsh Championship competitors and to the championship co-ordinators for running such a popular championship.”
The Eventsigns Woodpecker Rally will be round eight of this year’s nine round series taking place on Saturday 1st September. Dave Evison commented, “We are really excited about the programme of rallies that we have for our competitors this year and the Woodpecker will face stiff top competition to maintain their place as top event.
The Pirelli MSA Championship gets underway on February 17th with the Llandudno based Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally.
