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.

Many thanks to everyone who came out to compete or marshal. Sorry there were not as many competitors as we usually have but that’s something beyond our control. I think all the competitors enjoyed the event, the marshals all got to where we wanted them and we had no complaints! So despite the low numbers it was a successful rally. Thank you all very much.

Please be available for David Smalley’s rally next month.
