Local Crew to Tackle Britains
Toughest Rally Challenge

To raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance

RR Escort 2

Hi, my name is Robin Shuttleworth and above is a photograph of the MK1 Escort in which I compete in the Northern Historic Rally Championship against other assorted period cars. My co-driver, Ronnie Roughead and I have competed together for four years but our respective rally histories go back a long time. The highlight of our historic rallying was winning the Scottish Historic Rally.

The historic rally scene is where the major growth in Clubman rallying is, usually driven by older "kids" like myself, who grew up around these cars. The pinnacle event in historic rallying is the "Roger Albert Clark Rally", which, named after Britain"s first rallying hero, attracts competitors from all over the British Isles and also a growing contingent from abroad. This event is held annually in November or December. Competing over four days, re-creating the RAC rally of that era, in pre 1980 two wheel drive cars. The Roger Albert Clark rally starts at Duncombe Park at Helmsley, North Yorkshire on 2nd December and culminates in Carlisle city centre on Monday 5th December.

Now the pitch, as an end to our season we intend to compete in the Roger Albert Clark Rally. To do this event is obviously expensive, so we are looking for contributions, but with a difference. The plan is to decorate the car as shown below and sell each block to put your company name on. We are looking for a minimum donation of £100.00 per block, but do feel free to donate more if you wish. At least 50% of the donation will go the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, a self funding service dear to the heart of anyone who enjoys outdoor hobbies.
