Past Series: Jack Frost Stages Rally - 2016

< view list of all past series

2016 will see the 17th consecutive running of The Jack Frost Stages by Darlington & District Motor Club Ltd. Utilising the race circuit tarmac of Croft Circuit, near Darlington plus a bit of the paddock and service roads, the event has, on occasion, lived up to its name and provided competitors with some tricky first stage grip but then what should you expect in a British January.

This year sees the event as part of the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship in association with MSVR sponsored by Coronado Controls and featuring the Michelin Cup. In addition, the event is also a round of the S G Petch ANECCC, A S Performance North of England Tarmac and the Fuchs Titan Race ANCC Championships.

Entry is open to members of member Clubs of two Regional Associations: ANECCC and ANCC plus registered competitors in Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship.

In order to assist competitors DDMC will refund entry fees for anyone withdrawing up to the Thursday before the event and after that as long as a reserve can fill the place. We intend to use Matthew Atkinsonís excellent online entry system at rallies.info.

The stages utilise 100% sealed surface and will be restricted to 90 starters and we include a class for Historic Rally Cars. It is almost certain the final stage will run in darkness.

Full toilet and catering facilities will be available during the event and free camping will also be available for those competitors and service crew wishing to arrive on Saturday. As the service area is next to one of the public car parks we would ask that non essential vehicles are parked there and service vehicles are parked with consideration to other competitors. The gates will be locked during the night and reopened at 5.30am. Croft Circuit and its surrounding areas are monitored for noise and we would remind those attending that competing vehicles should not be creating noise from 6pm Saturday until Scrutiny on Sunday morning.

We hope you enjoy your Croft experience and we will endeavour to give you an enjoyable and safe dayís motorsport.

On behalf of the Organising Team

Chris Gibson
Clerk of the Course
