Very Latest update from Mike

Potential Marshals please see the Marshals page

Thank you for your fantastic response to the Event.

Over 70 entries were recorded on the day entries opened and 20 of those were by 12.20 am! Apologies to those trying to use the online entry system at about 9.30am - it just got overloaded and the system crashed.

By the HRCR Open Day at Gaydon we had 86 entries and more enquires were received at the show.

Ready to receive guests at the HRCR open day at Gaydon 2018

Our stand at the HRCR Open Day was as busy as ever with people enquiring about entries; others volunteering to marshal and some that just came for the 'free cheese' and a chat. Good to see you all.

With entries; please bear in mind last year, we had 16 reserves by mid-February and all of them had a run, due to other entrants not, for one reason or another, being able to compete. So, if you haven't put your entry in yet I would encourage you to do so.

Our route which was, we thought, finalised before Christmas is going to have to amended as United Utilities have decided to dig up the road we were planning to use to get the crews to lunch and their work isn't due to finish until the end of March.

With the PR work currently underway I have my fingers crossed that no more changes will be necessary. There are some 1,200 properties we need to visit, so its an enormous task - but well worth the time if it avoids any issues 'on the day'.

Yesterday, I drove the whole route and with all the recent rain there are a number of road sections that had whole carriageway floods. All were easily passable apart from one which was rather deep, and we will monitor that one closely over the coming weeks. Today we start to mechanically measure the route in Duncan's Mini, so we will see if there are any water issues!

Finally, if you haven't already done so, don't forget to get your MSA licences - which are needed by both crew members.
