The regulations and online entry form will go live on Saturday, August 19 on the club website.
And there’s a new look for the route on this year’s Tour, thanks to the organising team led by Walter Bateson and Cliff Simmons.
“The traditional format remains the same, but we will be heading further north-east and utilising some of the very best driving roads that North Yorkshire has to offer,” explained Walter.
“As a Touring Assembly, there is no competition element to the Andy Mort Tour, although crews will be required to follow the tulip road book and visit the codeboard checkpoints, some of which will be marshalled, to ensure the correct route is adhered to.
“The entire route takes place on sealed roads and can be safely driven in a standard road car, there is no need for special modifications.”
The start and finish venue will once again be at West Bradford village hall, where breakfast will be served to the entrants, before the first car is flagged away at 9.30am.
The lunch halt is at Brymor Ice Cream Parlour at High Jervaulx, near Masham, where refreshments will be served.
And a signature feature of the Andy Mort Tour, the ‘fun test’ is back again, ready to entertain crews (and spectators!) before the finish back at West Bradford, where a potato pie supper and prizegiving ceremony awaits.
“The Andy Mort Tour promises to be a great day out for everyone, and we look forward to seeing friends old and new in October,” said club chairman Neil Molyneux.
Entry fee for the 2023 Andy Mort Tour is £65 for driver and navigator, which includes a breakfast roll, tea/coffee at the start, a light snack at the lunch halt and a meal at the finish
