“Welcome to the 2015 North Yorkshire Classic Rally. This is the sixth running of this event by a team of experienced competitors from York Motor Club.
We will be based at the excellent start/finish venue, the Hawkhills, near Easingwold, North of York (100/536676). It is a beautiful venue in lovely grounds with great rooms, a bar and lots of space to sit, chat and plot the evening before the event. Accommodation and evening meals are available at the venue.
Scrutineering will be at John Ruddock’s garage in Tholthorpe (100/479671) 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 and some great tests on the rally stages in the grounds of the house. The event will include thirteen varied driving tests on sealed and broken tarmac. Tholthorpe airfield will again feature. 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. Due to the pre-plotted sections our event is a favourite of novices.
The entry fee for this year will be £125 and this includes morning coffee, lunch and evening meal for both crew members.
We are the 2nd round of the 2015 HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship and a qualifying round of the HRCR Premier Rally Championship.”
