Date confirmed for Sunday 4th July 2021.
After a year of inaction due to Covid, King’s Lynn & District Motor Club is offering you an early opportunity to get behind the wheel again as we invite you to enter our 43rd Annual Classic Car Rally. The event will again be run in aid of the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service.
Following some unprecedented times, KLDMC hopes we can again draw on the support received over many years from classic car owners across Norfolk and neighbouring counties. Our successful three venue format is retained for this event with an emphasis on driving our cars, enjoying the places we visit and sharing the day with other enthusiasts, all in a Covid-secure way with the help of our hosting venues.
This year we are starting the event from Downham Home & Garden on the edge of Downham Market. We will be heading south east from there on an extensive drive in the Thetford locality before we stop for lunch at Lynford Hall Hotel. We have secured permission from Forestry England to use the adjacent ‘Bull Ride’ area for picnics. Our finish was last visited in 1999 by our rally: Ickworth House in Suffolk is a neoclassical building set in parkland. It is the former residence of the Marquess of Bristol before being sold to the National Trust in 1998. Here you will be able to visit the West Wing, its tea room and gift shop. We are hopeful there will also be access to the Rotunda.
