Getting there and back
The start and finish locations are located within easy reach of the ferry ports from the UK.
Cars and documents
All cars manufactured prior to 1981 are invited but cars of a type first built after January 1968 will compete for a separate award structure. Your car will require a recognised Vehicle Identity Document, issued by the MSA, FIA or FIVA. Participants do not require a competition licence but should request us to arrange a Regularity Rally Driving Permit valid for this event only. We can help you obtain this documentation.
Accommodation and dining
Seven nights good quality hotel accommodation with lunch and evening meals on most days is included in the entry fee. Single rooms are available for a supplementary payment that purely reflects the additional cost. For those who would prefer a lower entry fee, alternative arrangements are possible.
The entry fee for a crew of two, sharing a double or twin room is £3,850. A deposit of £750 is required when the entry is submitted and the balance is payable by the end of April.
How difficult is the event
We’ll be retaining the popular format of a base tulip route book supplemented by a set of marked maps so those who prefer to use maps can do so. Taking part in the event will be a challenge but is well within the capabilities of crews who have perhaps only previously competed on single day events or longer touring style events. The social side of the event is very important and regular breaks are included.
What happens if I breakdown
As usual our experienced mechanics will be on hand to assist should you breakdown. But they can never be a substitute for good car preparation.
The organising team
Jeremy Dickson heads up the organising team, his international organising début was on the first Classic Marathon in 1988 when he was the Chief Marshal and he has held senior positions on over 60 events since. Route design is handled by Anthony Preston who has been creating our Classic Marathon routes for the last six years.
