This is the first time since the 1980’s and the Sandal Motors Rally, that De Lacy Motor Club have organised and promoted a road rally.
Last year, 2022, has seen a resurgence of interest in the Club with us running a very successful twelve car challenge. On the back of this the Club committee decided that the time was right to organise a new event for the calendar.
Working in partnership with Askham Bryan College, we will be running a half night road rally overnight 29th/30th April 2023. The rally will consist of approximately 100miles of competitive navigation on some classic North Yorkshire routes on OS 1:50000 Maps 105 & 100. Route instructions will be a mix of pre plot and “plot and bash” handouts.
The route has been driven in a standard road car, albeit with increased ride height, but we would strongly advise that underbody protection is fitted as there is some mileage on “whites”.
Additionally, on the day as part of the event, there will be a number of special tests which will count towards the results. [These tests will also be open to StreetCar competitors]
The Organisers will take be taking as many measures as is necessary to ensure that competitors are not required to drive at excessive speeds on the public highway. Therefore, we make no apologies for the use of SGW checks and Secret Checks and additional checks on roads which require them, such as dangerous or long stretches of road. It is our hope that despite these checks, to ensure safety of you and the public at large, that you enjoy the route we have put together.
