Doonhamer Classic 2016 Regs

“Welcome to the seventh running of the Doonhamer Classic Rally. This year, we are delighted to welcome a new enthusiastic sponsor The Blue Door Dental Practice from Dumfries.

Thanks also to the other landowners & officials who have helped to create this Doonhamer Classic Rally.

The start & finish venue will be at Lockerbie Lorry Park DG1 2SL on service road near Lockerbie where there are one test site. The 2016 route uses all of our already well-established venues, connected by classic quiet roads in beautiful South West Scotland.

During the event you will be challenged by 17 driving tests on a mix of tarmac, concrete and some smooth gravel, all of the “open” variety, with no reversing, designed to test the driver’s skill and not mental agility.

For 2016, we have striven to reduce queues at tests starts by reducing double usage.

Using simple navigation from a tulip style road book traverses road sections between the tests. No maps should be required to complete the route and there are no regularities.

At signing on, you’ll will get food vouchers for both crew members for breakfast. Lunch Stop has to be confirmed which will be a snack meal at mid point area. Breakfast & Lunch meals are included in the entry fee, evening meal must be purchased in Lorry Park Café.

The truck stop offers ample room for trailers as well as competing cars but please park considerately as instructed by marshals.

Back again for 2016 is the team award!. See item 13 of these regulations.”
