De Lacy Seven Dales Heritage Run

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"
