HRCR Mintex ‘old STAGER’ Asphalt Stage Rally Championship 2016 incorporating the Mini Sport Mini Challenge.


Title: Farewell to John and Elaine


After two seasons at the helm of the HRCR Old Stager Championship and previously two and half season at the MSA British Historic Rally Championship John & Elaine Hunt have taken the decision to step down after the last event of this year’s championship the Manx Rally in September.


The HRCR would like to take this opportunity to thank John & Elaine for all their hard work over the past 3 years. Under their guidance the Old Stager Championship has gone from strength to strength and now offers the clubman competitor the best supported asphalt historic championship in the country.


Taking over as Championship Secretary will be Simon Malins with Kevin Baldwin continuing as the Championship Press Officer and also taking on the role of Competitor Liaison Officer.


Many of you may already know Simon from being a competitor in the Old Stager Championship over the last 3 years driving his Vauxhall Firenza. His background in Rallying goes back to the 1970’s as a driver, navigator and co-driver. Simon & Kevin will work together with John & Elaine over the next couple of months to ensure a smooth hand over of the running of the championship.


There are already some new and exciting developments in the pipeline for the 2017 Old Stager Championship which we are working on now and planning to announce in the near future.
