Marshals Required for 2017 Event

To all marshals and radio crews - please register using RST as described below.

Join us in sunny Blackpool on 24th/25th February 2017 for the Legend Fires North West Stages, the Premier Tarmac Rally in the North West. The event will consist of multiple stages using four separate venues, two of which will be used on Friday evening and all four used on Saturday.

Marshals are required Friday afternoon/evening for scrutineering as well as rally stages and all day Saturday.

We are strongly encouraging all marshals and radio crews, who haven't already done so, to become an MSA accredited marshal by completing the simple registration and also carrying out the basic online training by following this link. The MSA have announced that all Marshalls successfully registering for 2017 will be receiving a great welcome pack sometime in early 2017. Unregistered marshals are still very welcome to join us in Blackpool, but will need to be placed with buddy who will be a MSA registered marshal.

In 2016 over 700 officials and marshals signed on for the event and we hope and expect that 2017 will be equally well supported, consequently the event will be using Rally Stage Team (RST) to collate registration information and support the allocation of roles and post numbers. We would therefore be grateful if you would complete the RST form for each day you will be attending. We appreciate that some of you may have already volunteered directly to individual stage commanders but please still complete the RST registration, making a note on the system of who you have already offered your support to. We will try to accommodate all specific requests for roles, positions and stages, but the earlier you register the easier it will be to match your requests.

The event will be using the majority of the well known stages as in previous years and once again will attempt to uphold the legend of the "best goodie bag of the year".

If you have any queries or need any help with the MSA registration or on-line training, please contact either of the Chief Marshals:

Dan Orme on 07792 475868
Neville Simmons on 07889 141828
or email to

We look forward to seeing you on the event and thank you in advance for your much needed help.

Event Sponsor - Legend Fires

Motor Sport (North West) Limited is delighted to receive the continued backing and encouragement from Blackburn based Legend Fires who has confirmed that it will continue as the main sponsor of the 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages Rally. 2017 will be the 14th consecutive year that Legend Fires has sponsored the event and the organisers are indebted to them for their enduring support.

In addition to the hard work and effort put in each year by the whole of the Motor Sport (North West) Rally Organising Committee the event would struggle to run in its present format and also continue its charitable support without a major sponsor and accordingly our thanks must go to Legend Fires for its longstanding backing and cooperation.


Plans for the Blackpool based 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages are well under way.

The event, which will run on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th February 2017, is expected to retain a similar format to 2016 and is to retain its base at the Norbreck Castle Hotel.

On-line entries will be available on 10th December 2016 09:00 hours. The event is extremely popular and has historically filled quickly, so get your entry in early.

Details of the hotel deal and booking reference will be available shortly.

The organising team looks forward to a rewarding year for all competitors and our sponsors and more details will be announced in due course.

Event Associate Sponsor

Having supported the event for the first time in 2016 by sponsoring the Lytham Hall special stage, we are delighted to announce that Select Security Services has increased its involvement to become the 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages Rally Associate Sponsor. The organising team is extremely grateful for this additional assistance and look forward to working with the Select Security team.

Rally Village Sponsor

Pennington Motorsport has committed to support the 2017 Legend Fires North West Stages by sponsoring the popular Rally Village. The show is now an integral part of the rally weekend and features Trade Stands, Static Display Areas and attractions such as race simulators as well as hosting scrutineering, Parc Ferme and the ceremonial rally finish. The rally organisers and Fox Motorsport are delighted to work with Craig Pennington and his team for the second year running and are extremely grateful for his continued support.
