Flying Scotsman Rally
April 3 2020 - April 5 2020
Full Steam Ahead
As ERA’s blue riband Flying Scotsman event smoothly glides into a second decade of outstanding vintage motoring, timetabling for the 12th edition in 2020 is already at an advanced stage.
Departing from the tranquil and luxurious Carden Park Hotel, close to Chester, on Friday 3 April, our tracks head east across the Cheshire Plains and into the Derbyshire Dales before turning north to enjoy the Yorkshire Moors and the Scottish Borders. Taking in rest stops at East Midlands and Newcastle, entrants will truly be seeing the best of England and Scotland as they arrive in grand style on 5 April at the world famous Gleneagles Hotel, once described as the ‘Riviera in the Highlands’. One of Sir Jackie Stewart’s favourites!
Route designers – Anthony Preston and Martyn Taylor – are busy crafting another first-class journey. This combines scenic regularities on remote country roads with exciting special tests where you can enjoy your fine vintage cars to their full. The competition will be suitable for all levels of experience with three days of exclusive vintage motoring and great camaraderie in prospect.
“It’s one of the best, there is something for everyone” John Lomas, Riley navigator
“I love the comradeship between the competitors who gather from all over the world to participate” Willy Van Loon, Bentley driver.
