Carlisle Stages Rally 2023

The event should have started on Friday night but the stage was cancelled due to high winds and flooding in the area, but Saturday went ahead as planned. The restart was from from H&H Auctions with the service area moving to Greenside and the Castle Car Park in Kielder. Saturday consisted of 45 miles and the event finished at Kielder Castle.

It was a close battle for the Scottish Rally Championship decider but with Jock Armstrong suffering a puncture and a dominant performance by David Henderson and Chris Lees the pairing clinched the title in their Ford Fiesta Rally2.

Kris Meeke showed his class winning the Historics in a Mk2 Escort, and the 2023 British Historic Rally Championship winners were Roger Chilman and Patrick Walsh in another Mk2 Escort.
