Gwyn Jones Memorial Rally - Friday 30th November

Post by Scoobydo » Tue Oct 30, 2018 6:38 pm

It's that time of year again and plans are well under way for the GJMR 18, again running as a 20/20.

This year the event starts again at the British Car Auction site at Blackbushe Airport but finishes at The Ely Hotel, just east of the start along the A30.

The route sees us move a little north this year onto maps 174 & 175. Around 105 miles of our popular and hopefully not so popular country lanes to test the skill of both driver and navigator.

There will be navigation for Experts and Novices with marked maps for beginners, provided I have sufficient warning. The beginners will not be eligible for the main award but there will be an award for their class as long as there is more than one. Also subject to two entries there will be a Best Lady award.

The Regs have been published and have be emailed out to all the regulars and will also be posted on this Forum and 12 Car Capers to download.

As ever, marshals are required to service all the controls with a marshals raffle at the Pub with all sorts of prizes. ? ! ? ! ?

Any questions, I can be contacted on 07721 754168 or gskeggs49 at gmail.com.

Entries as received so far are :-

1 - Jo & Rhys Williams – Expert - Southsea
2 - David Roper & Simon Fuidge – Expert – BAMA
3 - Pete Harding & Steve Barber – Expert – Basingstoke & CSMA
4 - Eddie Gale & Roger Davidson - Expert – Southsea & Farnborough
5 - Mike East & Richard Pashley – Expert – Farnborough & Guildford
6 - Ian Donaldson & Peyer Rushforth – Expert – Basingstoke
7 - Colin Woodhouse & Chris Moore – Expert – Basingstoke
8 - Barry Shurman – TBA – TBA – Southsea
9 - Vicci & Paul Vaughan – Novice – Basingstoke
10 - Ian Hazleton & Tony Brooks – Expert – Basingstoke & HRCR

With just under four weeks to go it's filling up nicely with all the usual crews.

Looks like we have a challenge for the ladies award but we are a bit thin on the ground with novices which could be boosted by the TBA and as yet no beginners.

If you don't intend competing we definitely need marshals, so please lend a hand to support this event. Contact details as top posting.

Still could do with a few more marshals please.

Dramatic change to current entries:-

1 - David Roper & Simon Fuidge – Expert – BAMA
2 - Eddie Gale & Roger Davidson – Expert – Southsea & Farnborough
3 - Mike East & Richard Pashley – Expert – Farnborough & Guildford
4 - Ian Donaldson & Peter Rushforth – Expert – Basingstoke
5 - Colin Woodhouse & Chris Moore – Expert – Basingstoke
6 - Barry Shurman & Glynn Hayward – Expert – Southsea & Basingstoke
7 - Vicci & Paul Vaughan – Novice – Basingstoke
8 – John Nicholls & Simon Taylor– Novice – Farnborough
9 – John Taylor & John Stringer – Expert – Southsea
10 – Thomas & Paul Alderton – Novice – Southsea
11 – Roy & Tim Cuthbert – Novice - Basingstoke

Work commitments and faulty cars have reduced the entry. There is a least one expert navigator who still wants to compete. All we need to do is find him a driver with a car. Anyone interested????

I have sufficient marshals now but could do with three more entries to make use of the MUK authorised number of competitors.
