« on: August 06, 2008, 11:13:36 am »
This concerns anyone who is attending the complete Rally and Tatton Park show weekend.  People who are only going to the show itself on Sunday and are on the stand don't really need to read this, info for you is in the separate thread by Dan Knight.

We now have the route finalised and you can find all the info you should need on the main website here:

nice one mate...

as said, this will be probably a nice jaunt round some nice scenery, as opposed to careering round bends!!!

yes as it says on the web page, these are public roads so there will no doubt be lots of traffic about, speed cameras, police etc...etc... we won't be racing around.

Great work there Paul, will be a good weekend. Deffo watch out for fixed cameras on the A628 (Woodhead Pass) and mobile camera vans on the A57, particularly near Lady Bower reservoir. Roads are not in the best of condition either, so best heed the advice and drive sensibly for the conditions.

Is there a reason you have done points B and C that way round for the saturday? Snakes Pass is best on the descent, so i would be inclined to swap B and C around. We can leave that to see what the weather holds on they day though?

Here is an aerial of Winnats Pass for those interested. Its the gorge south of Castleton and looks like we will be ascending it from the route.

well I'll guess we'll see what happens on the day.  Pete sorted the route out as I don't know which are the good roads round there really (i.e. it's all his fault :) ).  Are you coming Nick?

Aye will be there for the rally and show. Hopefully someone will bring along a video camara because Winnats Pass is pretty steep and confined, so we should get quite a bit of echo!

I could half-inch my mate's camcorder since he's left it at my house. :)

I need to buy a roll cage mount though
