International Rally UK, 2019

posted in: News | 0

The venue is set. The marquee booked. The entertainment chosen. Slowly but surely the Rally is coming together. 

11th – 17th August 2019, YHA Castleton, Losehill Hall, England

It wasn’t until I returned to Derbyshire for the Rally Committee Meeting that I realised the scope of the YHA, the dramatic beauty of the area and the fabulous variety of rides. The Rally Committee watched the promotional video before the meeting to bring us into focus as to what there was on offer, and what we had to do to. For those of you who haven’t seen it, the promotional video is now on the WIMA GB Facebook page and the WIMA World webpage ( 

A full day was spent working through our agenda, starting with the YHA. There are always so many little questions that we need answers too. Val has been amazingly patient dealing with the key personnel there trying to get answers to each one of our questions (and there have been many). WIMA GB will be handling the rooming breakdowns for the whole event, so we have to pre-allocate beds to all the International Groups. Easy when the venue is small but when you have 8 different room configurations, a juggling act is needed. The camping is easy – two sites, main and quiet. 

By lunchtime, the programme had been set, with highlights for the key days. We are still waiting to hear from the Police about the Parade Ride, so watch the video for a hint as to where it might be but we can’t confirm 100% yet ! 

The end of the day saw all of us pleased with what had been achieved ; now we just need you to book when the booking form comes out in December. It really is looking like a good event.
