CAR-nival Anniversary Stages

Saturday 27th / Sunday 28th November 2021
It is with enormous disappointment that we have to advise that due to the very last minute withdrawal by the MoD of the permission to use Abingdon Airfield, this weekend’s Abingdon CAR-nival Anniversary Stages WILL NOT be taking place as planned.

Having now had the opportunity to fully assess the viability of running the Abingdon CAR-nival Anniversary Stages in 2 weeks’ time, it is apparent that whilst there is reasonable support from the previous entrants, the date change would result in the loss of too many Senior Officials.

As we hope you can appreciate, finding replacements for Clerks of the Course, Safety Officers, MS-UK Timekeepers, and numerous key officials is impossible at this late hour.

Therefore, I am afraid we are abandoning events at Abingdon for 2021 in favour of concentrating on the forthcoming Mini Tempest Rushmoor Stages on 28th December.

We are committed to returning to a ‘normal’ Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival (Sprint, Rally and Autosolo) over the weekend of 11th / 12th June, which will feature its normal mix of good competition, social and camping.
We thank you for your support and all we can say is ‘We tried, and tried, and tried…’

2020

100 cars contested the 7 tarmac stages over 70 miles which featured superfast straights, high-speed corners and blistering turns which all combined to make a fantastic day of motorsport.

Stamina, concentration and driving ability all added to a great days rallying at CAR-nival and those that emerge victorious are always worthy winners.

Simon Mauger took the winners spoils in his unusual  Lotus Exige ahead of a host of Subaru WRCs, Fiesta R5’s and  Mk2 Escorts, many of which have already added their names to the CAR-nival Winners Trophy.
