Long-distance, historic rally competitors are well aware of the interest which family and friends have in our adventures. Sadly, the younger generation usually do not have the time (yet!) to follow in our footsteps, so we have decided to create a shorter, weekend event to serve as an introduction to our hobby for our sons, daughters, nephews, nieces and any other family members or close friends.
26 to 28 March 2021
Lake District, North Pennines, Yorkshire Dales
Based in a single hotel on the edge of the Lake District, proceedings will start on Friday morning with the normal pre-event formalities of scrutineering and signing-on. After a light lunch, the rally starts with a short scenic route to introduce newcomers to the ideas of Regularity Sections and Tests. The evening will see us all dining together for a Welcome Dinner, giving the chance to socialise with like-minded people and learn from the mistakes of others!
Saturday sees us heading further afield for a full day of competition in and around the beautiful, quiet roads of the Yorkshire Dales and Northern Pennines. The Tests and Regularities will increase slightly in difficulty as the day progresses and the crews become familiar with the techniques involved. Safely back at base, drinks and dinner will again be a great time to discuss the day’s successes or otherwise.
Sunday will feature a morning of competition with enough twists and turns to sort out the final positions. Lunch and an early afternoon prize-giving will allow for a timely departure for home – after what we are confident will have been a fantastic introduction of our hobby to the next generation.
We hope you can join us!
Where and when…
Friday 26 March
AM: Scrutineering and Signing-on
PM: Rally Start
Eve: Welcome Dinner
Sunday 28 March
Lunch: Rally Finish and Prize-giving
Each crew should consist of members of two distinct Generations – ideally from the same family.
Cars of a specification produced before 31 December 1985
Separate classification for cars of a specification produced before 31 December 1945
Please check with us if you are not sure your car is eligible.
There will be Regularity Sections each day on twisty but quiet minor roads. Special Tests will also take place throughout the event on private land, which can include farm tracks and large car parks.
Some of the most scenic roads in the area can be bumpy so low-slung cars may need to be driven with care, but we will avoid rough, potholed and unsurfaced roads as much as possible.
Our high-class accommodation will also be the venue for dinner each evening, and for a Prize-giving Gala Lunch on the final day.
The rally navigation will utilise a tulip Road Book with simple Regularities and Tests to start with, getting a little more complicated as the event progresses. Some of the sections towards the end of the event will require you to use map extracts that will be provided.
Tuition will be given before the start for crews that haven’t taken part in this type of rallying before, and Rally the Globe mentor teams will be on hand throughout the event to help with any queries.
