Riponian Rally 2024

The Riponian Stages 2024 marked the exhilarating kickoff for the Fuchs Lubricants Motorsport UK Historic Rally Championship. Building upon the success of the 2023 edition, this rally showcased its unique charm with closed-road sections seamlessly weaving through smaller forest segments in two of its thrilling stages.

Thirsk Rural Business Centre set the stage for a captivating Saturday, hosting documentation and scrutineering, while also serving as the epicenter for the event’s dynamic start and triumphant finish on the subsequent Sunday.

Wombleton Airfield, with its expansive grounds, played a crucial role as the designated service area, welcoming competitors after the first three stages.

Elliot Payne and co-driver Patrick Walsh emerged triumphant, navigating their Ford Fiesta Rally2 to an overall victory.

In the Historic Class, George Lepley and Dale Bowen claimed the top spot in their Mitsubishi Galant VR4.

In very wet conditions the Riponian Stages 2024 once again proved to be a great opener to the season.

Round two of the Fuchs Lubricants Motorsport UK Historic Rally Championship will see crews head to Rally North Wales on 16th March.
