7th July - Rally CANCELLED.

Hello everyone.  It is with deep regret that South Hams Motor Club has to announce the cancellation of the Carl Sorensen Memorial Rally due to unforeseen circumstances outside our control. We were all looking forward to running this rally as it was going to be such a special tribute to Carl. We are very proud of our association with the RAF at Portreath over the past 29 years and they are as disappointed as we are, that vital work for them has to take priority. We have looked at alternative venues but we haven't come up with anything suitable which is a great shame as Motorsport UK had ok'd our plans and had issued the permit.  Everything thing else was in place to run.

We apologise for this we will give full refunds to everyone that entered and given their support to this event. We will be in consultation with Carl's family as we wish to to able run an event in memory of Carl.

At present we have reserved our May date to run our TSH Stages at Portreath. Once again many apologies but it is beyond our control.

Paul Watts - Clerk of the Course


 Carl Sorensen Memorial Rally

A BIG welcome from the organising team to this very special event - the inaugural Carl Sorensen Memorial Rally.

Carl was a member of South Hams Motor Club and a keen co-driver who we sadly lost in May this year.  He won the "TSH Stages" at Portreath in 2006 navigating for Mike Reed in an Escort and continued to compete with a number of drivers over the years. Carl is pictured with Gary LeCodeau's WRC Toyota Corolla above.

Come and join us celebrate Carl's life at this great new 1 day event at the very popular Portreath base this summer.

No experience is necessary but I know many of you have been down to assist in previous years at the TSH and will know what a great venue it is for all involved.
