“Welcome to the 2016 Ilkley Jubilee Historic Rally and Jubilee Run organised by Ilkley and District Motor Club. This year is our ‘Silver Jubilee’ as the Ilkley Jubilee Historic Rally first ran in 1991 and follows the successful and popular format of the past number of years with a scenic route in and around the Yorkshire Dales interspersed by a number of driving tests.
This year’s event starts from the Millstones, which is located west of Harrogate on the A59 near to Kettlesing. The morning leg consists of five regularity sections and six tests and after the lunch break the afternoon sees three more regularity sections and six tests to finish back at the Millstones where a carvery meal precedes the results and award presentation. The navigation for the regularity sections is a mix of a tulip roadbook and pre plot instructions issued at the start and some plot and bash using simple navigation methods issued along the route. All the regularities are timed to the second and this mix enables us to sort out a result amongst the masters and experts whilst also giving novices and beginners an enjoyable and competitive day.
We are once again included in the Historic Rally Car Register Hagerty Insurance Clubmans Rally Championship and Premier Rally Championship along with the ANWCC Championships. Members of clubs in NESCRO and both the ANWCC and the ANCC are welcome to enter the event and will receive the same Yorkshire hospitality that has made this a popular event in the past.
For those competitors who do not want the added expense of competition licences or the complexity of navigation, the Jubilee Run is a Clubman’s status event, using a similar route with all the driving tests of the Rally. Navigation will be by a simple tulip road book complete with maps, making this an ideal event for beginners who are considering progressing to National ‘B’ events.
