Huge Excitement up North
« on: May 15, 2019, 07:22:13 pm »
Received some really positive news this evening from the realms of officialdom.

The proposed route for class R has been accepted.

This will be a first for the MCC in modern times 100% tarmac route, including tarmac special tests taken straight from route cards of the 1950's.

A smidge under 200 miles starting at midnight and using over 70 miles of roads not used by the Edinburgh before. We ve scoured the National Park and found the best lanes imaginable including 6 miles of tarmac road with grass growing up the centre!

The midnight start means a lunchtime finish and a leisurely break for breakfast at the Duke of York ( crowned best pub in the Dales for Sunday Lunches only this week!)

We hope that members and friends will support the Edinburgh, Class R on the Edinburgh in 2019 is suitable for a wide range of vehicles from Vintage through classic, modern historics to daily run abouts providing a challenge for all levels of competitor from raw novices in the family saloon to old hands on Hero rallies. 

The trial will be offcially launched the first week in June when all information etc. will be available to help you make your choice of how you ll be spending October 5th.

Mark,

Sounds great. I'd be tempted to enter if not doing class B (or maybe A or C).

Cheers,

Ian.

I may well do class R just to get back in to it.  May do it on the G/S too.
