About PC Rallying


PC Rallying has been developed in the name of Paul Coombes (1954 – 2005) and charts the achievements of his son Stephen.  Paul was a very popular character who was well respected within Motorsport.  He gave full commitment to everything he did in the sport, carrying out just about every role you can think of.  He was a key member of Preston Automobile Club & GPMC, a most competent Driver & Navigator and the driving force behind several popular events in the North West.

Paul was part of the organising team behind stage rallies like the Silva Stages, managing to secure venues like Weeton Army Camp, Longridge Fell, Gisburn Forest, Steven Park and Preston Docks for the only time it was ever used on a special stage.  He also organised Road Rallies and helped turn the GPMC Memorial rally into one of the best Road Rallies currently held in the North West today.  On his death the SD34 Motor Sport Group dedicated a trophy in his name that is given out to the best road rally of the year.  For me this is an excellent tribute.

As for me, my name is Steve Coombes.  I have been involved in Motorsport for over 30 years, and like my father before me, have done most things.  Everything I have done and learnt in the sport has allowed me to develop, opening up opportunities and allowing me to compete at the front.

Some of my successes include almost single handedly organising the GPMC Memorial Rally in 2006 (with Terry May’s help) as a tribute to my father, winning the Clitheronean Road Rally and Roskirk Stages, winning the inter association Road Rally Championship, being part of a team that has transformed the Memorial Rally into the event it is today and making some great friends along the way.

I’ve been presented with trophies from celebrities, pushed cars out of ditches in the rain, been mentioned in local and national press, helped Myerscough College students to gain event experience, tutored new drivers on events as they start out, met Colin Mcrae twice, met Juha Kankkunen when he was World Champion, forgot to sign David Llewellyn’s time card during the season he won the British Rally Championship and done 130mph down Blackpool prom.  Oh, and spent a fortune doing it 🙂

Watch out for me on events and Enjoy your sport……….
