Post event message from Dave Read

a copy of Dave Read’s comments from Facebook regarding the above event
Well we did it, we’ve achieved the dream………… Closed Road motorsport!!!!!
Now in the history books as the 2nd Closed Road Rally in England and the first in the North.
This was a massive learning curve for everybody, not just us organisers but the authorities, emergency services, the residents and local communities,
Now I’ve had chance to catch a breath it’s time to say Thank You to the following people without whom we couldn’t have done it.
Firstly John Stone and Susan Calvert of Legend Fires, not just for the financial backing, but for the encouragement and moral support you always bring. You are Legends!!
Wyre Borough Council and Lancashire County Council, who listened to our presentations, trusted and believed in us, then supported us so much over the past 12 months to ultimately grant us that valuable Motor Race Order!!.
The ‘Blue Light’ Emergency Services – who worked with us so closely not just before the event but during it.
Motorsport UK, so helpful in the early days and ultimately granting us that permit allowing us to apply for Closed Roads.
Myerscough College, Belinda, Simon and all the Students who not only welcomed the event into their home but put so much effort into the event.
Garstang Town Council, Leah and Alec, plus the businesses and people of the town, we couldn’t have asked for a better welcome – With thousands of people packing the High Street you are now famous for providing one of the best ever rally starts. What an amazing night Friday was.
All the Stage PR teams who have been visiting and talking to residents for the last 9 months, without their efforts none of this would have been possible.
The Farmers, residents and Parish Councils on the stage routes, we appreciate that letting us use your roads inconveniences you, but you all embraced the event and entered into the spirit.
Road Safety Services the traffic management company that provided the signage, staff and equipment for the road closures. Such an important job, perfectly executed.
Simpsons Skoda and all other stage sponsors and advertisers who helped cover the cost of this mammoth undertaking.
The core Organising team who have committed 1000’s of hours to make the rally happen, a massive workload shared by just a handful of people.
Then we have over 650 volunteers who worked on the day, not just out on the stages but in the back rooms as well, Safety Team, Radio, Rescue, Results, Set-up teams, Timing, Marshals, Commentators, Car park staff, programme sellers, etc.
The spectators who turned out in their thousands, it could have been a nightmare but they behaved impeccably making our jobs so much easier.
Last but not least, thankyou to our partners for letting us spend so much time in achieving this dream. You have got us back now!!
