LATEST: Following announcement of the Goodwood Festival of Speed dates, we provisionally expect to run our 41st Annual Classic Car Rally on 8 July 2018. Further details to follow.
40th Annual Classic Car Rally
IVAN CUNNINGTON MEMORIAL RUN
Our 40th Annual Classic Car Rally, kindly sponsored by Anglia Car Auctions, took place on Sunday 23 July 2017. We are also grateful for additional support from Norfolk Classic & Sports Cars and Hix & Son of Holbeach.
This year’s event was known as the Ivan Cunnington Memorial Run in memory of Ivan who ran the event for 38 years. The event was run in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance for whom we raised just over £1750.
As it was the 40th event, we 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 was at the Barnham Broom Hotel and we finished the event this year at a new venue, Creake Abbey. Our thanks to all our venues, including The Globe in King’s Lynn who did a sterling job in providing coffee funded by our principal sponsors, ACA.

Best Dressed Crew – #8 John & Sarah Penny (1938 Austin Big Seven)

Results attached, thank you for your entries, it was meant to be straight forward but I probably should have used a stretchier piece of string. Boards may not have been at the exact references but near enough.
