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.

Sadly as the years roll by the membership slowly depletes, in 2017 we lost Nigel Raeburn and in 2018 we lost Roy Fidler, Alan Jolley and Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams and in 2019 we lost both Roy Mapple & Terry Harrison - Alan, 'Whizzo' and Terry have officiated on the Tour of Cheshire for many years and Nigel was the original clerk of the course - During 2021 we also lost Bob Redhead, John Bloxham & Peter Bryant.
