Entry rises for Jack Frost Stages.

Entries have started to roll in for the annual Jack Frost Stages Rally, which will take place at the Croft Circuit in North Yorkshire in January.

The second of the winter car rallies at Croft has so far attracted around forty crews, including 2007 and 2008 winner Chris Wise in his MG Metro 6R4, former National Rally Champion Paul Bird in his Subaru Impreza WRC and the Mitsubishi Lancer of top asphalt driver, Tommi Graham. Also, the formidable MG Metro 6R4 duo of John Stone and Mark Jasper have confirmed their entries to add to the quality of what will be a superb line up.

With the preceding Specsavers Christmas Stages Rally on December 28th expected to be massively over-subscribed when entries close this weekend, meaning a potential late influx of entries, then prospective competitors are encouraged to get their entries in for the Jack Frost as soon as possible to avoid further disappointment.

"We have been over-subscribed for the past three years so we don't want anyone to be disappointed if we can help it, therefore we'd sooner people get their entries in early rather than risk missing out,” secretary of the meeting Terry Wright said. “We usually get an influx after the Christmas Stages but if people leave it that late, they really do run the risk of not getting a confirmed place.

"There is no selection process and we do not reserve any entries, it's a case of the first ninety cars get a run, then we open a reserve list in receipt order. In the unlikely event that there are any entries available after the closing date, and the entry list has been seeded, then they will run at the back of the field.”

The event is a qualifying round of the North of England Rally Championship 2009, 2009 SG Petch/ANECCC Stage Rally Championship, Borders Stage Rally Championship 2009 and ANCC Stage Rally Championship 2009.

There are also classes for all modern cars as well as historics.
