Excellent entry list for event: This year has surpassed all expectations with regard to the level of entries received. With entries closing shortly, the Run has attracted 57 cars of varying types, who will be assembling at the Sherburn Aero Club to take part in our big social and motoring event of the year. This a testament to Mike Brownlow, who has built it to its current standing. This a great turn our for the 10th Anniversary. But there is still time to enter. So, go to the Entry Form below and put in a last minute entry, let's get to 60! It is our 60th Anniversary Year for our Clubhouse, how apt. Club President

Heritage Run 2024 - Details Announced

Good afternoon to all our members and friends. Yes, it is that time of the year again. The 'Heritage Run' team have for the past couple of months been working hard on this year's 'run' and we are now able to forward you the details. 

The route, start venue and a new finish venue have been finalised and we are now able to open the entries for this year's event. Last year was our most successful event ever with 45 entries and we missed several past entries due to a clash of dates so we are hoping this year, the 10th anniversary of the Run will even be better.

We make no apologies if you have received this already, but, over the years, the mailing list for previous entries/those who have shown an interest in the event has exceeded 140 !!

 So, what is new for this year? The route, which Mike Brownlow has devised is another great scenic route of around 85 miles through the North/South and West Yorkshire countryside. Starting once again from Sherburn Aero Club, which we have used for several years, and then this year finishing at a new venue, but still with an aero theme, at Breighton Airfield, near Selby. You can find out more about the finish venue here , there is also a museum which hopefully you may like to visit.

 The basic entry fee for a vehicle with two occupants has sadly been raised to £17.50, this allows us to provide you with a printed road book with 'tulip' instructions and a rally plate for your vehicle and to subsequently keep as a souvenir of the event. Like last year, on your entry form you will be able to pre-order if you wish to, a hot drink and breakfast sandwich at the start and a drink and piece of cake at the finish.

 What else can we tell you? Once again profits from the event will be donated to a local charity. The regulations and entry form are now live on the web page. Click the appropriate box to open the documents. 

Please pass on the flyer, regulations, and entry form to any of your friends and colleagues who may be interested in taking part, they don't have to have a 'classic' vehicle.

 Thank you for your support in the past, let's make this the 10th anniversary event even bigger and better! We look forward to receiving your entry. Remember, that we also celebrate 60 years of our Clubhouse in 2024!

 Many thanks

 Steve Cowley - Treasurer and Clubhouse Manager
