KLDMC Classic Car Run: 2021

 

43rd King’s Lynn & DMC Annual Classic Car Rally                              sponsored by Anglia Car Auctions and in aid of NARS

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, KLDMC regrettably had no choice but to CANCEL ALL PLANS FOR THIS EVENT, originally scheduled for July 2020.

We plan to get the event up and running as soon as we are able.

The provisional date is now Sunday 4 July 2021 – please keep the date free – but it is by no means inked-in…

As we are sure you will appreciate, any decision to run an event in summer 2021 is totally conditional on our being able to put the various parts of the rally together in a manner which is Covid secure for all our participants.

Notwithstanding current limitations being put in place to curb the recent upturn in virus cases, we are currently investigating what additional practical measures may be necessary to allow us to run, most importantly,  a safe rally, even if this has to be done in a different way from our usual format. And, of course, we’d want it to be enjoyable for everyone too.

If we can arrive at a satisfactory proposal, we will issue regulations in early April 2021 and for those who have entered the event in recent years, we will contact you. Otherwise, please send your contact details to: kldmc.classic@btinternet.com 

We thank you for your continued support in these difficult times.

Harold Palin Memorial Stages

04-Oct-20 Harold Palin Memorial Stages

On Sunday, Will Brown myself and Paul Smalley made our way to the Harold Palin memorial stages at Fulbeck airfield.
We were seeded at Car 50 out of 60, which I thought was a little lower than It could have been. But as my last event was Snetterton n Feb 2019 and I had never been to fulbeck before it would have been difficult to seed us.
We managed to get set up next to the other KLDMC Crew of David Large and David Ottoway which made the day more sociable even at 2m distance.
Onto the event.
Started off with reasonable pace considering but late on in the stage very rough and muddy.
Stage 3 got cancelled before we went in, the class leader had hit something hard and made a mess of his Mg Zr. we were given a notional time that cost us around 20 seconds. It did bother me, but I decided instead of moaning, just get on with and see what the day brings.
Stage 5 We had a push, but managed to nudge a bale, but was only a couple of seconds off the class leader in a ex Works Micra.
Stage 6 we were comfortable over
4th in class and not going to catch 2nd in class. So I eased off slightly to ensure a finish.
We ended up 24th o/a and 3rd in class.
A big thank you to Paul Smalley for servicing for us and providing us cups of coffee at service. Will Brown for being spot on all day and keeping me in check.
Hopefully we can get out again before the end of the year.

David Large and myself competed at the Fulbeck Stages today after an off on stage 1 into the trees but with the help of the marshals they got us out and we got to the end of the stage with a maximum, starting stage 2 last we finished the day 42nd and 10th in class.

Flying Fortress Stages

13-Sep-20 Rex Pet Hotel Flying Fortress Stages

Today myself and David Large had our first rally since February bit of a long lay off but was great to be back out there. We started the day steady to knock off the cobwebs!!! but progressed through the day finishing 36th and 13th in class. The new timing system for stage rallying worked really well and we soon got used to it.
Thanks goes to our sponsors and Andy & Mike Sharp for servicing today.
