All,

As is usual the 2018 RBRR in aid of Epilepsy Research UK will be announced within the publication of the November edition of Club Torque.

However, we have decided to change the process of entering the event, for 2018 one will be able to do this online. The other change will be that we are delaying the opening of the Entry until Friday 1st December 2017, the website will be live for entry at a designated time on that day, this time to be stated in the November Club Torque. This is being done to enable all members of the Club to get an equal opportunity at entering the event. In previous years, those who magazine has arrived first get first dibs, this change should enable all CT members to get a chance, including those who are based abroad or work away from home. Also, RBRR Entry Administrator Jason Chinn's workload should be reduced, its frantic during the first week of entry!

The RBRR is a Club Triumph event, the principal entrant has to be a member of Club Triumph. One will not be able to get into the 'Enter' section of the RBRR part of the forum without being a CT member, of course, one can join the Club before attempting to gain entry.

One important change is that Entrants will be able to revise their own Entry Details, so for example, should their original co-driver not be able to take part, they will be able to review and change the information. Of course, this will bring the onus for correct details onto the Entrants themselves, important to note as we will compile the Finisher Souvenir listing from the website list, wrong name will mean that the Tankard/Picture Frame is wrongly named. All aspects of the Entry will be able to be revised. We will check these at the Drivers Meeting as we dish out the Entry Packs. With over 130 entries, changes can bring chaos, again, this will reduce Jason's workload.

Also, we are limiting the entry to 140no places, after that entries will be let on a discretionary basis by the organising RBRR group. We are not going to operate a Reserve List this time. Last time in 2016 134no started the event, but we suffered some 13 retirements. We think entry to the event has peaked, so the 140no seems about right.

We hope that all thinking of taking part agree that this is a necessary step and work with us.

NO MORE CHEQUES!

We the organising team look froward to seeing the RBRR 2018 entry list grow!!!!

Regards,

Tim Bancroft

Noted.

Hopefully it won't fill up instantly during a time some people can't get by a computer. But after all, this is RBRR entry not a Foo Fighters concert so should be fine!


Acclaim - fully working and on the road
13/60 Herald - mx5 powered and other such fun things, legal enough...
Mk1 2000 - it's still alive, just sleeping
Expert 815d - the slug

If in doubt, do up until you hear the crack and then go another 1/4 turn to ensure tightness.

Pete,

Blimey, do that many want to go and see the Foo Fighters, amazing!

By announcing the time to the minute that entry will open, we should reduce the stampede!

Both the online registration and the new payment methods are a big improvement, congratulations to the organising team!
The only bad thing is that we have to wait one month more...

I waited 26 years before I did the RBRR again.
Perhaps the entry could be made as a list, and the organisers randomly select 140 for the next RBRR and 140 for the next but one RBRR etc etc. You might get my drift.
How may CT members do the RBRR every time? Is it really necessary to do it every time?  Or perhaps the entry fee should be closer to the fees for Le Jog.....

Are you serious? The entry fee for this years Le Jog is £3,722.00.  How many cars do you think would enter at that price?

Is it really necessary to impose restrictions? What have you got against people that don't want to wait 26 years?

Each to their own though, it is always great when someone who entered years and years ago enters to have another attempt.

Nigel Abdullah (RBRR Routemaster) who last did the event in the 80s, did the last RBRR and will probably have another go next decade!

For some of us who are not in our first flush of youth (or at 73 even our last ...... ) the challenge set up by doing the RBRR means a lot and will want to do it for as long as we are able.

And as for comparing with Le Jog - I was not aware that it was a charity fund raising event.  Very many of us make completion of the RBRR as a means to raise money for the designated charity on top of the cost of entry and fuel.  Besides this is a CLUB event not a commercial operation.

I remember RBRR when it was just a fun bash around the island in a Triumph. The first time I entered was the first time it was a charity fund-raiser. I probably won't do it again, in 26 years I'll be 88 and I might like to be in bed by 9pm on a Friday night, not driving up the A1 to Scotland!

I don't want to impose any restrictions, but the entry list gets longer and longer, the roads get busier, the breakfast stop in John O"Groats doesn't get any larger. Perhaps LeJog wasn't the most appropriate comparison, but it popped into my head because of the association with the two ends of the Bristish Isles.

Do not worry, the RBRR will not become a victim of its own success.

The event usually raises money for the Club and helps to keep the books in order. Therefore the compromise between having a large entry to ensure a surplus and making the event unmanageable due to vast numbers is difficult.

However, I think the event still seems a small event as one gets into one's own bubble, if that makes sense. In fact, the only time one becomes aware of the amount of cars taking part is at the start and at Blyth, after that the pack of cars gets spread out. JOG and LE cope well serving the brekkies, especially considering the amount, over 300 breakfasts! To be honest if they could cope with bigger numbers, we would consider opening the event up to more.

One of my fave aspects of the RBRR is the line of red tail-lights snaking up the A68 towards Scotland, its always great to think that they must nearly all be Triumph motor cars.

Anyway, let see what happens when the entry opens on 01/12/17.
