Mewla Rally & Epynt Stages Cancelled

Epynt Motor Club regret to announce that the Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally and RallyMarketing Epynt Stages will not be going ahead on August Bank Holiday weekend due to the on-going pandemic. The Event has worked hard to try and make the event happen, including changing the format to a one-day event, but ultimately with current Welsh Government regulations and with no assurances from Motorsport UK that either event would be able to go ahead this year. 

Regrettably Epynt Motor Club has been forced to cancel this year's Mewla Rally and Epynt Stages, despite much of the planning already complete. Other issues including restricting access to the ranges by the general public and the influx of people into the area were major considerations in our decision.

Our thanks go out to our sponsors, Old Forge Garage and Rally Marketing and the championships for their support once again. The event was due to be a round of the BTRDA MRF Tyres Mixed Surface and the now cancelled WAMC Tarmac and King of Epynt Championships.

Clerk of the Course Alun Probert said “We are all saddened to cancel this year's event, but by not running we can help protect the vulnerable and the long-term future of rallying in Mid-Wales. We will now turn our thought to preparing for next year."

The organisers would like to thank the support and encouragement they have received from competitors, officials and marshals during the past few months.

The Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally & Rally Marketing Epynt Stages are scheduled to take place on the Epynt Ranges, August 29th 2021.

 Issued July 2nd 2020.

To All Marshals, Competitors and Spectators,

On behalf of the Old Forge Garage Mewla Rally and Rally Marketing Epynt Stages Team - a massive thank you!
Feedback received so far has been fantastic and we are always keen to hear more - positive and negative from all aspects of the event. Thank you to all the competitors who took part and have already made some suggestions for next year.

Whilst there was a small number of marshals who didn't turn up for various reasons we still had a great turnout, this was noted by the Motorsport UK Safety Delegate and the Motorsport UK Steward who also wish to express their thanks alongside the whole Mewla team, without marshals we wouldn't have been able to run the event – So a massive Thank You for dedicating your time! 

Spectators numbers were up this year, and overall were very sensible - this really is a massive help to keep the event running smoothly, ensuring a great day's competition for competitors, but also a great days viewing for spectators. 

Finally thank you to Brian & Tim Dennis of the Old Forge Garage, and Howard and James Watkins of Rally Marketing, and to all of the Stage sponsors, whose contribution to the event are gratefully received - Stage Sponsors: Brecon Car & Van Hire, Get Connected, Hirefit,FJ-RS Engineering, Protyre, Melvyn Evans Motorsport, Rallynuts, Geoff Jones Motorsport, John Morgan Carpenter & Joiner, Hawktech 

We are always looking for people to join the organising team - If you can spare evenings before the event or can just help on the day - please don't hesitate to contact the team to get involved!
The event will run on the 30th August 2020 - we hope to see you there!
