Flying Scotsman Vintage Car Rally
04/04/2014 @ 7:00 am - 06/04/2014 @ 8:00 pm
The 2014 Flying Scotsman Vintage Car Rally breaks with past tradition and move the entire event for a “Great Northern” edition, starting out from the Forest of Arden, very close to and with easy access to Birmingham airport.
This will see Day One drive north and west to an overnight hotel near Blackburn – so crews can enjoy driving the remote roads of Lancashire and Yorkshire from the start. This gets the event into the Scottish Borders on Day Two… we then drive much more of Scotland than has previously been possible, in a giant loop that sees us finish up again at one of Scotland’s finest hotels at Gleneagles, north of Edinburgh.
Any pre-war cars are eligible to enter, with a pre-war chassis, and a pre-war engine design. Any Exceptions? Flying Scotsman Vintage Car Rally are open to persuasion that an HRG is essentially a pre-war car, and so too is an MG T-Type. If it’s got two leaf springs at the front, then you certainly stand a chance. Organisers are looking for the right pedigree of cars, and more importantly, we want crews with the right attitude – And crews come from all over the world to take part.
