Thank you for your ongoing support 
Thank you everyone for your understanding and support over the decision to postpone and subsequently cancel the 3 Shires Stages Rally on September 18th 2022, following the death of Queen Elizabeth ll. This was a difficult decision to make as the rally was ready to run but, in the circumstances, it was the correct decision with the national mourning period. 
Preparations for 2023 Rally are underway 
Cheltenham Motor Club has now begun to organise the 3 Shires Stages Closed Road Rally for September 17th 2023. The first stage of the process is a Motorsport UK Consultation which will run from January to March 2023 when all the county, parish, ward, and district councils will be contacted by Motorsport UK with details of the rally.

Frequently Asked Questions  

This is the section of road that is closed to the public for the competitors to compete on. At the start of the stage competitors are given their “start time” at the end of the stage they are given their “stage finish” time. At the end of the competition the time are added up and the ones with quickest time are the winners. 
The event will be run by experienced and licenced motorsport organisers under the rules and regulations of the sport’s governing body Motorsport UK. 
The road will be closed between 6 am and 8 pm but the rally will facilitate access at times during the day. If the stages can be cleared down and road is safe to return to public, it may be open earlier, then 8 pm time. Always check with the resident liaison officer before travelling on the road. 
Prior to the rally all the stages are risk assessed for safety by experienced rally organisers and the appropriate protection is built into the safety plan. If you have any specific concerns you would like to discuss, please contact us on and one of the clerks of the course will contact you. 
During the rally, the first point of call for all residents is the stage resident liaison officer whose details will be available in the resident’s handbook prior to the event. 
During road closure the rally will schedule times during the day when residents can access their properties. 
The rally has a dedicated safety network in place which will consist of a marshal near to residents’ properties, a radio car and a direct contact phone number to the stage resident Liaison officer to request access. Residents will be asked to travel in the direction of the rally stage during the day to ensure their safety. 
The rally will engage its own emergency and medical crews (doctors, medics, paramedics etc) behind all incidents whether this is rally or resident related incident. In 2021 a resident was taken seriously ill during the rally and the rally medical team took the decision to transport the patient to hospital to limit the delay for treatment. 
The rally sees local residents as the main safety concern
