“Welcome to the second running of the St Wilfrids Classic Rally, following on from the success of the 2013 event, which continued Ripon Motor Sport Club’s proud tradition of running road rallies stretching back to the 1970s, and it is the organising team’s intention that the 2014 event will maintain this tradition.
We have taken note of the feedback from last year’s competitors and basically it will be more of the same, including the entry fee! The organising team for 2014 is largely unchanged and we will be providing a straightforward, but challenging event based on OS Map 99. The route will be given as a mixture of pre-plot and some plot & bash using simple navigation instructions, designed to be interesting enough for the serious competitors, but with help for Novices to ensure that they complete the full route and enjoy themselves.
The event will be a Historic Road Rally, starting from Thirsk Auction Mart and feature a number of special tests on a variety of surfaces, including a new venue, linked with regularity and transport sections through some of the best countryside in Yorkshire. The lunch halt is in Masham and the finish at the Angel Inn, Topcliffe.
The event forms part of the Autosessive 2014 HRCR Clubmans Championship, the ANWCC Historic Championship and the NESCRO Challenge.
We look forward to receiving your entry and you can be assured of a warm Yorkshire welcome.
Putting on an event of this type is a tremendous undertaking and we would like to thank our advertisers and partners for their support. To run the event successfully we need a large number of marshals so if you are free on the day but can’t compete why not come along and marshal? All offers to help should be sent to the Chief Marshal, via the club email address: [email protected]”
