East Anglian Classic Historic Rally
Saturday 21st June 2014
John Ruddock & Andy Pullan in a Ford Escort Mexico - winners of the 2014 East Anglian Classic
A round of the Historic Rally Car Register Clubman's championship.
Chelmsford Motor Club is pleased to welcome you to its annual historic road rally, The East Anglian Classic. We are once again delighted to be a round of the Autosessive HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship. This year the event will again be a one day format which will allow cars requiring a waiver of permit to take part in one of the most social rallies of the year and we are continuing our traditional Saturday format. The Old Ram on the A140 at Tivetshall St. Mary will again be our start/finish venue. We are confident you will receive a similar high standard of service and food.
This year we will again be running The East Anglian Classic Run, a closed to club event for pre-1986 cars, which avoids the need for competition licences and Motorsport UK logbooks for Category 4 cars. Navigation for the Run will be by marked map, and the route and tests will be exactly the same as the Rally, so this will provide an ‘bridge’ between classic runs and the HRCR championship for those wishing to progress in their classic motorsport.
Again we will be supporting the East Anglian Air Ambulance, which provides airborne response across Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire funded entirely by charitable donation. Competitors are offered the opportunity to make a donation using the entry form.
The route will cover around 150 miles throughout Norfolk and Suffolk. During the day there will be a number of special tests at some classic venues as well as some new ones. The type and format of last years regularities was well received and this years event will be no different although one section will be traditional plot’n’bash. We will be using some lanes for our regularities that haven’t seen a rally car for many years.
This year’s entry fee will include bacon rolls and coffee for breakfast, a light lunch and an awards buffet where you will be able to recall the day’s exploits and hopefully collect some silverware.
The start and finish venue does have limited accommodation available which can be booked directly via their web site http://oldramnorfolk.com and there are many hotels and B& Bs nearby.
The event will start and finish at the The Old Ram Coaching Inn, Tivetshall St. Mary. Limited accommodation is available which can be booked directly via their web site http://oldramnorfolk.com and there are many hotels and B & Bs nearby.
