The GT Memorial Tour
Sunday 27th June 2021
All the venues are now finalised for this brand-new Charity Classic Car tour being organised by the experienced team at Bognor Regis Motor Club Ltd. The tour is being run in memory of Graham Thornton, a regular supporter on the Regis Classic Tours. He passed away from asbestos related lung cancer in January 2020.
This new tour will conform to any Covid 19 guidelines still in place on Sunday 27th June 2021. Should there still be major restrictions in place, deeming unsafe to go ahead, all entries and payments will be held over to a new date in the Autumn. The team have safety as their highest priority and there will be on-line entry and signing on. All tour packs containing a tulip roadbook, will be sealed at least 3 days before the tour to be collected at the start. Hand Sanitiser will be available.
The exclusive start will be on Peter and Mary Hall’s farm near Romsey, Hampshire. The route will then follow quiet country lanes through to Breamore House Countryside Museum where your BYO picnic lunch will be eaten along with a visit to the museum. Tea and Cake will be served by the ladies of Micheldever WI at our next exclusive venue at Duncan Hamilton Motors with a chance to view their current range of exotic classic and motorsport cars. The route will be approximately 100 miles in Hampshire and Wiltshire, finishing back at Peter and Mary’s farm with a roast beef roll.
The aim of the event is to raise lots of money for Mesothelioma UK while having a great day out with your classic travelling through beautiful countryside with like minded people. Regulations and a link to the entry form are available at www.bognor-regis-mc.co.uk
Please note the majority of the event will be held outside for safety reasons, please bring a face mask and be prepared for whatever the weather may throw at us!
Entry fee is £120.00 for a crew of 2 to include breakfast rolls and coffee/tea, entry into the venues mentioned above, afternoon tea and cake and a hog roll at the finish. Additional crew members are £60.00. £12.50 per person from every entry will be donated to Mesothelioma UK.
Special accommodation rates have been organised with Chilworth Manor Hotel for those wishing to make a weekend of it.
