2021 Cataclean Promenade Stages Rally

By 0 262 Views

It is with great regret that the Organisers of the Cataclean Promenade Stages Rally have taken the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 event scheduled to be held on 3rd and 4th September.

The organising team has been working tirelessly to try to secure the landowner’s permission to run the event, but the Council is currently unable to provide us with guidance as to a timeline when they expect to be able to consider allowing spectator events in the Borough. We, in turn, are mindful of our responsibility to protect the health and safety of Wirral residents and all those attending and organising the event and fully understand the Council’s position in what remain uncertain times.

As organisers, we are at a point where we are required to confirm event personnel and most significantly, commit to booking the substantial amount of externally sourced equipment that is required to set up the venue and stages. This would put the club at risk of considerable financial loss, hence the need to make this disappointing decision now.

We are, as ever, conscious of the local community, sponsors, Council, spectators, event personnel and enthusiastic competitors who have unfailingly supported our event for the past 39 years. Following the challenging period we have all suffered since March 2020, the team was keen to organise a landmark 40th running of the event that could have benefitted both the local economy and motorsport community as a whole. Sadly, this is not to be, but we remain optimistic that we can return on the 9th/10th September in 2022.

In the meantime, Wallasey Motor Club and the rally organising team wish you well and hope you all stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you next year.
