Classics on Tour

There’s an interesting mixture of young and old out on next week’s Andy Mort Tour – and that’s just the drivers!

As one of the best-organised Touring Assemblies in the north-west, the 2300 Club have been rewarded with an full-house entry of 60 cars and crews.

“We were delighted to fill our entry list within a few weeks of the regulations going live,’ said Tour secretary Stuart Pye.

“And we have a great mix of cars, and a lovely mix of our regulars, who join us every year, and some new faces eager to sample some of the best driving roads in Lancashire and Cumbria. We look forward to welcoming everyone next week at West Bradford Village Hall.”

Multiple historic rally champions Neil and Arlene Calvert will lead the field away at 9.30 in their beautiful Lotus Cortina, running at car zero.

AMT regulars Bill and Val Honeywell will be out in their Porsche 911, while Charlie Woodward has enlisted renowned rally organiser Fred Bent to read the maps in his Ford Escort.

Former Vauxhall rallyman Ian Harrison has a new car this year, an MG RV8, with Elspeth Murray alongside.

2300 Club member Clive Molyneux is bringing along his lovely Morris Cooper S, the little 1275cc machine having survived Pendle DMC’s Summer Tour in the hands of Nigel Worswick.

He will be taking part too, in his superb Ford Escort Cosworth.

Ian and Victoria Swallow are one of several crews who have taken part in many AMT’s, and they’re back for more in their Mazda MX-5.

Last year’s Andy Mort Tour saw Trevor Roberts’ Mini Sport Cooper S 24 FTE running at car one in the hands of Michael Anderson. He’s back for another go too, but in the navigator’s seat alongside son Ben in his Mini City E.
