After the success of last July's momentous event ending in a 3 way tie on the penultimate stage and with Steve Furzeland winning the deciding last stage to take overall honours’, we look certain to see another scorcher in 2013!
A date to remember 28th July 2013 at Boconnoc is a must!
In the depths of the Cornish countryside two years ago there was a merry band of like minded petrol heads with a vision!
Their vision was to create an annual celebration of Cornish Motoring, to be held at the beautiful Boconnoc Estate, Nr. Lostwithiel. Many of you will be familiar with the excellent events already held there, none more so than the Spring Flower Show and the Steam Fair.
Five motoring organisations in the south west joined together in 2012 to hatch and develop this brand new event and see it through to its maturity. Members of Camel Vale, Newquay, Truro, Plymouth and South Hams motor clubs lifted the lid on what could turn out to be a real gem of an event for the future.
The story so far... To get the ball rolling in 2012, the event was a motor rally, where spectators could watch from several vantage points, wander around the paddock and also talk to the competitors.
Some stands and displays provided additional interest.
In future, with a little more time for planning, the event will become much more. The whole concept will include Classic cars, displays, stands, demonstrations, a selection of vehicles from all types of motorsport including circuit racing cars, hillclimb machines, off road, both sporting and production trials and someone to tell you the difference! There will also be a selection of vehicles for spectators to drive on a designated course. In fact lots to look forward to!
So, a date to remember Sunday 28th July 2013. I’ll be there, hope you will be too!
