The late spring is a period when the English countryside can be seen at its very best and where better to experience it than in a particularly beautiful corner of these islands, namely The County of Dorset. Fans of fossils, dinosaurs and Thomas Hardy will already have discovered the splendour of Dorset’s coastline while perhaps missing the gems hidden away in the county’s interior, accessible only via lane and byeway. Our Minors are particularly well adapted to traversing these roads and our hosts John and Jo Nagle have selected two tour routes where just some of these hidden gems will be revealed to us over the course of the weekend.
Our rally base is to be The Crown Inn, Marnhull, which is also the venue for our rally dinner on Saturday evening and starting point for both the Saturday and Sunday tours. The inn has a large car park where we will gather, along with our cars on both mornings before setting off on each of John’s mystery tours. Unlike all but one of our earlier rallies, of necessity this one takes-in some hilly terrain which should ensure our cars receive plenty of lusty exercise, even if their occupants don’t!
Our last rally in North Norfolk was fully subscribed and entries for 2016 will once again be restricted to 25 cars and crews for reasons of logistics, comfort and safety. The rally and its routes will be registered with the MSA, the local constabulary will be informed of our presence as will other local authorities. If you are intending to join us please book early to ensure your place.
