To all Marshals

Dear Marshals,

Another very successful Tour of Cheshire.

Thanks to each one of you for the considerable effort you put in to ensure the smooth running of the event.

We hope you enjoyed your day and the best of the recent weather - this morning there was some overnight snow on the cars before the heavy rain washed it away!

Many Competitors at the finish expressed their appreciation of the high standard of marshalling so a massive thank you from the Organising Team to all the Marshals who made it possible on the day.

Results are attached as a pdf or are available on the Starters Page

Thank you once again for marshalling hope to see you in 2018.

Since inception in 2004 the Tour of Cheshire has involved members of Ecurie Cod Fillet in the organisation, marshalling and social aspects of the event.

This unique band of rallying enthusiasts was formed in 1955 by the successful crew of Roy Fidler (King Cod) and the late John Hopwood, originally as a name for team entries in the "Motoring News" championship events and other major rallies of that era. The fish connotation came from Roy's business as a fish merchant and it soon became a much sought after honour to be invited to join its ranks. Membership has always been by invitation only - even today there are less than 300, representing a veritable "who's who" of the good old days of British rallying in the 1950's, 1960's and early 1970's.
