IVAN CUNNINGTON MEMORIAL RUN
Our 40th Annual Classic Car Rally
The date for our 40th Annual Classic Car Rally, kindly sponsored by Anglia Car Auctions, is Sunday 23 July 2017. Regulations are now available: please click on the link above to download. Please note that entries will close on Wednesday 5th July without fail.
This year’s event will be known as the Ivan Cunnington Memorial Run in memory of Ivan who ran the event for 38 years. The event will be run in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
As it will be the 40th event, we have decided to start the Rally from the Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn, as we did for the 25th Run back in 2002.
The lunch halt will be at the Barnham Broom Hotel and we will be finishing this year at a new venue, Creake Abbey.
