East Anglian Classic Historic Rally
Saturday 16th June 2018
John Haygarth / David Taylor - winners of the 2018 East Anglian Classic.
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 HRCR Clubmans Rally Championship.
Following several successful years in the north Essex area we have decided to move the event further north into East Anglia, starting and finishing in Bury St. Edmunds with easy access from the A14 trunk road. We
will be re-visiting some old favourite test venues as well as some brand new ones. We have also moved the event to the Saturday to avoid clashing with Fathers’ Day and other local events.
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, 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 a ‘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 the region funded entirely by charitable donation. £10 per entry will be donated by the club, and competitors are offered the
opportunity to make a further donation using the entry form.
The route will cover around 140 miles around the picturesque lanes of Norfolk and Suffolk, many of which have not seen a rally car for several years. The type and format of last year’s regularities was well received and this year’s
event will be no different including at least one section of traditional plot’n’bash. Navigation will be straightforward and the types of navigation used will be defined in the final instructions to avoid any confusion.
This year’s entry fee will include bacon rolls for breakfast, buffet lunch and an awards dinner where you will be able to recall the day’s exploits and hopefully collect some silverware.
