Entries are now closed for the VSCC Eastern Rally

Tuesday 05 July 2016

Entries are now closed for the upcoming Eastern Rally, taking place on Saturday 16 July based near Thetford, Norfolk - contact the Competition Department now to reserve your place!
Resurrecting the Club’s popular Eastern Rally of old, this year’s event sees the experienced local team of Piers Hart, Don Smith and Nic Portway take charge again after an absence of 20 years.
By kind permission of Lord Iveagh, the event will be based at Elveden Hall, just south of Thetford on the A11, with the day’s route taking Competitors through 90 miles of uncongested lanes in south Norfolk and the Waveney Valley in Suffolk. There will be the usual classes to test the skills of Experts and Novices alike. However, since the Club’s annual Norfolk Tour (CLICK HERE for more information) will be taking place within a fortnight of the Rally, there will be no Touring class.
The Rally will run straight through, without a lunch break, which will allow a slightly later start of 10.30am, with Competitors signing on from 8.30am. A breakfast bacon and sausage bap (or vegetarian alternative) with tea/coffee for the crews is included in the entry fee. At the end of the day, participants will be able to socialise and take refreshment in the restaurant, adjoining the Hall. A light meal/high tea will be available; pre-booking is recommended (details will be circulated to entrants in due course).
Accommodation is available at the Elveden Inn, and there are a few comfortable B&B’s nearby. It’s best to look online, or contact Piers on 01842 890508 or email for further advice.
Finally, for those who took part in the Eastern all those years ago, and who collect such items, there will be the traditional mugs!
