Date announced for the rally in 2023

9th June 2022
Sunday morning

The recent rally was a great success, with thousands of people at Clacton seafront on the Saturday evening for the sunset stage and at the Sunday spectator stages. They were joined by tens of thousands of viewers who watched the live online streaming.

Chelmsford Motor Club is therefore delighted to announce the next running of the event is planned for the weekend of 22nd & 23rd April 2023.

Event Director Tony Clements said: “The welcome the rally received on its return this year was fantastic and we look forward to working with the local communities again.  We’ll have further innovations for next year to entertain the growing crowds who come to see this exciting spectacle.”

Cllr Alex Porter, Tendring District Council Cabinet Member for Leisure and Tourism, said: “Since it was first on the road in 2018, the Corbeau Seats Rally Tendring & Clacton has always been a spectacle, and this year’s new seafront stage in Clacton proved immensely popular – with crowds lining the promenade.

Given its popularity and what a draw it is for the area I’m delighted Chelmsford Motor Club plans to bring the rally back next year; it is certainly something we will support.”

Cllr Porter added: “The rally is an important part of our exciting events calendar, and whether cars are your thing or you prefer the bright lights of Illuminate Festival or the planes at Clacton Airshow, you can keep up to date by downloading – for free – the LoveTendring app to your smartphone.”

Further information will be available later this year.
