De Lacy Seven Dales Heritage Run

Page last updated 21st February 2022

2022 Event on track: We can now report that we have received approval of our planned route from Motorsport UK, so we are now in a position to open entries for this year's event, with the regulations and entry form available below
As we stated earlier, the entry will be limited to 50 vehicles, so please don't hesitate in getting your entry in soon to guarantee your place.
We have this year three methods of payment option, BAC's, Cheque and Cash. BAC's are preferred but cheques can be sent in the post to me or cash payments can be made up at the clubhouse, either at a Stag Owners club meeting or a Friday club evening, details are included in section 8 of the regulations regarding payments.
We understand things do not always go to plan with older vehicles, so if problems are encountered nearing the event, we'll allow a change to your planned vehicle, or we have included a withdrawal refund option detailed in section 10, we do hope it doesn't come to that though.
A hot drink and sandwich option is once again available prior to the start at a cost of £5 per person, this needs to be pre-booked on your entry form to allow us to give numbers to the caterers, (those not wanting this option may however purchase drinks as necessary from the cafe). And on your return to the finish all participants will receive a free hot/cold drink. You'll also be able to purchase additional snacks, meals or cakes, etc.
Please feel free to forward this email, together with attachments to your friends, colleagues who may be interested in participating.
We look forward to your continued support and to seeing you on the day.
Many Thanks

Seven Dales Heritage Run returns to its original summer date: As the new year progresses, the organising team are putting together this year's 'Seven Dales Heritage Run' which will revert back to a June date having been hit by 'Covid Pandemic' over the past two years. This year it will run on Sunday 12th June 2022. 

Last year's run, back in October, was a great success with an almost full entry. Starting and finishing at a new venue for us, at Sherburn Aero Club. 

We are hoping this year to put together an interesting new route, covering new roads/areas with interesting features such that you once again have an enjoyable day out. 

The entry will be limited to a maximum of 50 vehicles, so once the regulations and entry form are issued please do not delay if you wish to attend. 

Once again it is our intention to donate profits from the event to local charities, which have some meaning to us at De Lacy and to you the entrants. 

We look forward to your continued support. 

Many Thanks

Heritage Run, Sunday 3rd October 2021:
The entrants for this year's Heritage run gathered at Sherburn Aero Club for breakfast, ahead of approximately 90miles of roads in the North Yorkshire Countryside. The weather forecast ahead of the event had been somewhat mixed, but on the day the rain held off for the most part. A good field of cars, 40 plus, headed off just after 10am on Sunday, with a route that wound around the county, much of it on roads which we had not used before. Some crews encountered some difficulty with some of the navigation, but everyone got back to the Aero Club largely unscathed.

The Clerk of the Course for the run, Mike Brownlow had this to say at the finish;

"It has taken us a long time to get here with the pandemic, but we managed it, if just a bit later in the year than normal. I just want to thank everyone for entering and supporting the Club on this event which was started a few years ago to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of De Lacy Motor Club moving into its Clubhouse home. We try to go one better every year and I'm very pleased that everybody seems to have had such a good day out. Next year is the 70th Anniversary of the founding of the Motor Club, so we will be having discussions about doing something special for next year.  Please watch the website or the Club newsletter for details of a date. Thanks again"
