This is the fifth running of this event by a team of experienced competitors from York Motor Club. We will again be based at our excellent start/finish venue at The Mercure Fairfield Manor Hotel, just North of York (MR 105/570557) with easy access from the A1237. It is a beautiful hotel in lovely grounds with great rooms, a real bar and lots of space to sit, chat and plot the evening before the event. 4 star accommodation at a reduced rate and evening meals are available at the venue.
Scrutineering will be at John Ruddock’s garage in Tholthorpe (MR 100/479673) and the measured mile will be between scrutineering and signing on, for convenience.
This year we are again heading up into the North Yorkshire Moors to show you some of our hills and moors. Following fantastic competitor feedback from last year’s event we are pleased to be visiting Duncombe Park again for lunch and some great test on the rally stages in the grounds of the house. The event will include twelve varied driving tests on sealed and broken tarmac. Tholthorpe airfield will again feature, but this year we plan some fast and open tests and we also have additional new venues. These will be linked by six regularity sections, all timed to the second with very little transit. None of the roads or tests have too rough surfaces. Navigation clues will be varied, but not impossible brain-teasers and there will be plot-and-bash sections. Although there is no additional Run this year, we have introduced a Beginners class for less experienced competitors.
We have kept the entry fee for this year at £110 and this includes morning coffee, lunch and evening meal for both crew members.
We are the 2nd round of the 2014 Autosessive HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship.”
