Interview: Organising a rally in a pandemic

RallySport Magazine spoke to the 2021 Rally of the Bay Clerk of Course, Nigel Bland, to see what it is like to organise and conduct an event during a pandemic.

Amid varying challenges including date changes and new regulations to adhere to, the Rally of the Bay was the first event back in 2020, and they know how to organise an event in the current environment.

RSM: Thanks for your time Nigel. I guess the first question to ask is, are you crazy? 

NB: Haha, no no, I wouldn’t say crazy. But it certainly does have it’s challenges. But not just from the COVID aspect. Organising an event even in the best of times has its challenges, which all start from day one.
