The “Andy Mort Tour” – 20th October 2018

Following on from last year’s successful Andy Mort Tour in October 2017, the 2300 Club are organising a similar event this year in memory of former club member Andy Mort.

The event will be called the Andy Mort Tour and will take place on the 20th October 2018 and is a gentle run around Lancashire / Yorkshire. It is not a timed or competitive event and is classed by the MSA as a ‘Touring Assembly’ – for the layman that is code ‘for a leisurely scenic run in the country on proper Tarmac roads.’ … so no need for roll cages, sump guards, etc! There will be prizes for the correct route as well as best turned out car etc etc. The navigation is via Tulips or (new this year) Map References, from a supplied Road Book.

The Event Regulations and Event Entry Form are now available, by clicking on the document names. If you’re sending your entry form by post, please tell us your email address too. Please send completed forms to secretary@2300club.org or by post to: Andy Mort Tour, c/o Stuart Pye, 112 Whalley Road, Wilpshire, Blackburn, BB1 9LJ.

In the meantime a few details to whet your appetite are here:

  • Start & Finish venue will be 9:30am at West Bradford Village Hall (BB7 4TE)
  • Morning route of approximately 65 miles
  • Lunch halt (approx. 1 Hour)
  • Afternoon route of approximately 65 miles
  • There will be some fun driving tests near the finish venue
  • The Entry Fee is £50 (2 people) which will include a light breakfast and buffet meal at the finish venue. Extra passengers cost £15

Following the event and buffet meal at the West Bradford Village Hall, the 2300 Club is proposing to hold an Event Forum with a series of high profile guest speakers. Details of the speakers will be announced through the website and by email to entrants. Entrants to the Tour will be automatically reserved a place at the forum. Tickets will be available for non-competitors at a cost of £10 per head including buffet meal. Demand for this Forum is expected to be high.

Again the emphasis will be on fun and entertainment. Audience participation is welcome.
