The 2017 Essex Winter Rally – 19th November  – “Sand, Sea and Herrings”

The 10th edition of the Club Triumph Essex Winter 12 Car Navigation Rally will be running again this year in November, on Sunday 19th.   This is the perfect way to spend a Sunday morning using your Triumph in an event which can be as competitive as you want it to be, as there will be a Beginner “Touring” class as well as the usual Expert and Novice classes.

The title above gives some hints as to where the route this year might take you; suffice to say that we will be visiting some of  the more coastal and “watery” areas of Essex and southeast Suffolk.  The event is being run over a wide mix of roads; some nice flowing roads, interesting little lanes, etc., none of which are damaging to your car. In previous year’s events we have been blessed with some perfect, crisp, early winter sunshine and some great close competition, and this year’s event is hoped to be just as good.

The start location is in Brightlingsea, Essex, which is on the coast to the east of Colchester, and the finish location is very close to a main road which gives easy access to the A12 both north and south. Start times are from 10:00am and there should be approximately three and a half to four hours of driving before reaching the finish. There will be breakfast available at the start, a Sunday lunch in a pub at the finish, and about 75 miles of navigation and driving between the two.  The route will be the same for novices and experts, but with the navigation clues being different to suit the differing skill levels. If you do not wish to, or are not able, plot the navigation yourself for the route you can always enter in the Beginner class. The Beginners will get a marked-up copy of the map to use, and can opt to answer some treasure hunt type questions as they go round, with the chance of winning a bottle for the most correct answers.

This event is always very popular, strictly limited to 12 cars, often oversubscribed, and is suitable for raw beginners and seasoned crews alike. Have a look at the Regulations, which long with the Entry Form, are available to download below and, if you fancy a great morning’s competition, get an entry in straight away.

Ah yes, the Essex "Water" rally.

The fords went up over a foot between checking at 8am and car arrival at 11am, except for the one that was already over 10ft when I checked the day before.

Glad you saw the error....   Just checking on your observational skills  

I'll correct it I think.

If you remember correctly, the Essex Water Rally was organised by someone else.  No chance of floods on mine

I just despair of your lack of imagination.

Offer to take her out for a drive followed by a nice lunch. Nothing untrue in that.

Plonking the map on her lap may be a bit suspicious, but it is too late by then

I too am busy that day sadly, so probably not able to take part.

Two entries have now arrived:

Tim Dafforn/Simon Long - TR6 - Beginner
Clive Senior/Lucy Senior - Toledo - Novice

_____________________________________________________

Also, just a reminder of the general rules and format for the event (which have been in place since 2015), copied from the Rallies/12 Car Navigation Rallies section of the website:
12 Car Navigation Rallies - There will be 3 classes in which you can enter: Beginner, Novice and Expert.  All entrants, regardless of class, will drive the same route.

Beginner Class - The Beginner class is a non-competitive touring class and is for those wishing to participate in the event without having to work through the navigation clues. Anyone can opt to run as a Beginner. Beginners will be given either a marked map or a list of map references to plot on their own map, and the individual organiser will decide with you which of these you will use. The route will be exactly the same as the other classes, and driven in the same direction. To add interest there will be questions given to you to answer as you drive the route, or you will simply note down the code boards along the route the same as the other classes; this will be decided by the organiser. No competitive Championship or Challenge points will be awarded in the Beginner class, but you will be given start and finish points as appropriate.

Crews who normally run as Expert or Novice can opt to run as Beginner if they wish, but will not gain any points for use in Championships and the Challenge, except start and finish points as above.

Novice Class - Novice clues will be different to the Expert clues and they will be simple and straightforward with no tricks. If needed, you may be given general discretionary help with plotting or specific navigation queries.

Expert Class - Expert clues will be a significantly harder and may include a small number of very tricky (but still workable) clues, and reasonable measures to stop Experts from having excess time to drive alternative possible routes.

Clues for Novice and Expert classes will be very clear in their meaning with no scope for different interpretations. For example, terms such as "best not to" and "try to" will not be used and terms such as "must", "mandatory", "must not" or "forbidden" will be used.

Additional route proving information may be used, as well as additional information on code boards. For example, the number of bells at the "?? Bells Pub" could be a question for Novices. The same question given to Experts could also provide the 6th digit of the map reference of the next navigation clue, as could an additional character to be found on a code board. There may also be bonus points awarded for these answers which will help provide a tie break, if required. The use of such navigation questions and additional code board information is up to the individual organiser to use or not, and its use will be clearly stated in the Final Instructions.

Scoring will remain as is currently used for Expert and Novice classes, and as stated in the Final Instructions.  Beginners will be given a score within their own class, based upon their accumulated points, purely for their own interest and enjoyment. Experts and Novices will have any bonus points used for tie breaking purposes, if this method is being used by the organiser.

Championship and Challenge points for Experts and Novices will remain as is currently used. Beginners will not be awarded Championship and Challenge points.

Dummy code boards may be used and it will be made clear to entrants that they may be encountered, and that the fact that they may see a code board does not necessarily mean that they are on the correct route.

Panic Envelopes will be used so that Experts can continue the event if they fail to find or work out the answer to a next-junction dependent question, and in case Novices get really stuck with the navigation or become lost. The envelope will only contain the location of the next control.  The penalty for opening will be such that entrants would not open it purely to gain an advantage; normally 3 fails per envelope. The Final Instructions will state the penalty given.

Promotion.  A navigator will move up from Novice to Expert once he or she has had 3 wins within the current class in CT 12 car events, or in similar events with other clubs. A driver will run at whatever class his or her navigator is currently at.

Final Instructions will include a clear statement of what format the event is going to be and be very clear on how the scoring, bonus points, and tie-breaking will work for the event.

Crew members will be limited to 2, even for the Beginner class, to comply with the MSA 12 Car Navigation Rally permit.

Entries will open with publication on the CT Forum, Comps website and (where possible) within Club Torque.  There will be a 10 day period in which Expert and Novice entries will take precedence over Beginner entries. This is to allow entrants who are trying to gain points in the Championship or Challenge a better chance of a place if there were to be a high number of entries for the beginner non-competitive touring class.

You should hopefully have received one from me and Niggle by now too  


Harold: '67 Herald (not) 1200 convertible - some bits still fairly shiny & red some not so shiny, some now the wrong kind of red! Height adjustable at the front by virtue of clever spring seat thingies (and flat tyres) and at the back by virtue of how much cr*p is in the boot

Maude: '66 2000 (for now) in amazingly good nick with mahoosive Webasto sunroof, manual now with o/d and back on the road after 9 year lapse. Much electrickery, Alfa seatery, power steerery, front suspendery (ooer!) & carburettory also now done.

Polish them if you must, but don't stick them on the mantelpiece - drive them (carefully, cos the number of wheels in contact with the black stuff [or the other end of the driveshaft] is liable to change when you least expect it !

Hi Tim,
Yes as Stuart says, the start location is in the regulations which you can download from this thread further up. As you don't have a map the map reference given is of no use so use the postcode given instead. If you need a specific location now, let me know and I'll email you a screenshot, as I'd rather not put the location here on a public forum.  A week before the event, I will send the Final  Instructions to all entrants by email. These include everything you need to know to compete in the event on the day. As beginners, you will be given a map at the start with the route already marked on it, and all you need to do is to follow the route on the road, writing down each code board you pass, which shows that you have driven the correct route. Novices and experts have it quite a bit harder than this as they have to work out the route themselves from navigation clues provided.

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions once you have read the finals, then just let me know.

Rgds, Mike

The entry is now full, but still open for reserves. Experience of previous events shows that somebody will almost certainly drop out before the day, or break down getting there, so still send an entry if you would still like to enter.  If a place does not become available I would be very happy for you to use a marked map and run as a closing car, picking up the code boards on the way round for me. And you'd get your entry fee back. See?... there is such a thing as a free lunch.

My work load has been hectic over the last few weeks, ive had the application filled out ready to send, i just havent had the chance, is it worth me sending it down to you for the reserve list?

If you could let me know and ill get into the post tomorrow morning along with a cheque.

Be gutted if we cant compete as it means we will loose points, my own fault though so no worries of not.

Cheers Nathan

Hi Nathan - History of this event shows that nearly every time, somebody drops out with a few days to go or breaks down on the way there in the morning of the event. Or both. If you are 1st reserve, you stand a relatively good chance of getting in at the last minute, although nothing is certain of course.  Only you can make the decision whether it is worth the risk of travelling down and not getting a run.

Why not send an entry anyway, and I will keep you posted of the current position right up to the night before. If still no withdrawals, on the morning you can decide whether to travel to Essex or not. I can return your entry fee if you decide not to chance it.

Also, you could run as the closing car, going round the course behind the others picking up the code boards for me, using a marked map. You'd get your entry fee back and get marshalling points awarded.  Not everyone's cup of tea, I'll admit, but it might be okay for you if you are just looking for a run out and getting some points.

Hope this may help.

Cheers - Mike

PS - you could sneak into Jon's workshop on the 18th with some tools and "help" him find his leak?

Just don't go near the radiator when finding the leak - had enough headaches on RBRR with that sodding thing. Probably the most expensive single component on the whole car!

Car change noted for team Radley/Warr - thanks.

The question about whether certain crews should be entered as novice or expert ought to be pretty straightforward.  The current rules on this within CT can be found at http://club.triumph.org.uk/cgi-bin/comps/mxcontent.cgi?pid=70  and the relevant bit is:

"Promotion.  A navigator will move up from Novice to Expert once he or she has had 3 wins within the current class in CT 12 car events, or in similar events with other clubs. A driver will run at whatever class his or her navigator is currently at."

It is left to the entrant to be honest about this as CT organisors have no means, nor wish, to trawl through past results from other clubs.  I have no doubt that all entrants we have now, and had over the years, have been 100% trustworthy in this respect.  I suppose there could be a case for voluntary promotion should the individual want an extra challenge, and that would be fine with me.

I've had 2 enquiries about remaining places and being on the reserve list/running as closing car, but nothing in the post as yet.  So, if anybody still wants to enter and hope for the best (or worst, from the dropping out crew's point of view) send an entry in soon.

Make sure the filler is abit thicker in the PI don't want it falling out as easily as gertie...


I've never touched the front valance on Gertie, so the filler was already there from when you and the other bodger owned it.

Ah, that would be why the filler fell out last Friday, nothing at all to do with the road just disappearing (well it did kind of, it went into a ford) and definitely nothing to do with the marker post for the ford..

We will send you the bill.

Nah, that's a bit further North Steve..........................


Harold: '67 Herald (not) 1200 convertible - some bits still fairly shiny & red some not so shiny, some now the wrong kind of red! Height adjustable at the front by virtue of clever spring seat thingies (and flat tyres) and at the back by virtue of how much cr*p is in the boot

Maude: '66 2000 (for now) in amazingly good nick with mahoosive Webasto sunroof, manual now with o/d and back on the road after 9 year lapse. Much electrickery, Alfa seatery, power steerery, front suspendery (ooer!) & carburettory also now done.

Polish them if you must, but don't stick them on the mantelpiece - drive them (carefully, cos the number of wheels in contact with the black stuff [or the other end of the driveshaft] is liable to change when you least expect it !

An HRCR Navigation Handbook has been sent out to Essex Rally first time navigators.  If anyone else wants one, let me know.

Also, if anyone has to unfortunately withdraw from the event between now and Saturday night, can they please let me know ASAP so that Nathan and Tom (the reserve crew) can take their place.

Thanks.

Posteriors starting with the letter A and ending with E!

Team Fallowell is out of the event - lost all the headlights on the way home from work tonight. Working to fix it, but may not get it done in time. Dropping out now to give Nathan a chance to run.

JJ's unfortunate withdrawal, plus a slight crew re-arrangement, car change, and another possible car change makes the list look like this:

Michael Helm/Andy Flexney - TR6 - Novice
Steve Radley/Richard Warr - "Saloon"/Novice
Charlie Deards/Bob Deards - TR7 V8 - Novice
Stuart Wilson/Steve Dargan - TR7 - Novice
Clive Senior/Lucy Senior - Toledo - Novice
Nathan Billing/Tom Overton - 1300 FWD - Novice
Michelle Wake/Colin Wake - Herald - Expert
Peter Jackson/Mark Rutter - 2500 TC Estate - Expert
Dale Barker/Nigel Abdullah - 2000 Saloon - Expert
Tony Pulis/Ellis Stokes - 2500 Mk1 Saloon - Expert
Ian Cowan/Chris Dyson - TR4A - Beginner
Tim Dafforn/Simon Long - TR6 - Beginner

The weather looks promising for Sunday, although a bit chilly.

See you then.

Michelle is driving the "in-a-state"

Your convertible is RBRR ready I reckon..... not going to break down now I have worked my magic on it.

Hope you have put a decent seat in it for her. You can use the convertible if you want. Have a nice mgbgt to use on the rbrr, but don’t think I would be allowed

The sun shone, the wind blowed, and 12 cars left Brightlinsea at 09:45 on Sunday and pitched up about 4 hours later for drinks, food, a natter, and the provisional results.

These have now been checked, a correction made which promotes one crew and unfortunately demotes two crews, and are as follows:

Colin and Michelle Wake - 1st overall and 1st Expert - 3F and 6 Reg points
Pete Jackson and Mark Rutter - 2nd overall and 2nd Expert - 3F and 207 Reg points (as you can see, less points is good)
Tony Pulis and Ellis Stokes - 3rd overall and 3rd Expert - 5F and 3 Reg points
Clive and Lucy Senior - 4th overall and 1st Novice - 5F and 66 Reg points
Stuart Wilson and Steve Dargan - 5th overall and 2nd Novice - 7F and 26 Reg points
Steve Radley and Richard Warr - 6th overall and 3rd Novice - 7F and 59 Reg points
Dale Barker and Nigel Abdullah - 7th overall and 4th Expert - 8F and 39 Reg points
Nathan Billing and Tom Overton - 8th overall and 4th Novice - 12F and 123 Reg points
Bob and Charlie Deards - 9th overall and 5th Novice - 14F and NTR (no time recorded)
Michael Helm and Andy Flexney - 10th overall and 6th Novice - 16F and 103 Reg points
Tim Dafforn and Simon Long - 1st Beginner - 5F and NTR
Ian Cowan and Chris Dyson - 2nd Beginner - 6F and 221 Reg points

There will be an email to all competitors shortly with the above results included, plus a bit of plotting info about the "tricky" Section 3 (12 green spots....) and the "missing" M and K code boards.

Thanks to all crews for making it an enjoyable event (for me anyway...) and I hope you all made it home safely.

Nice pictures Pete.  I've also got some, that I was taking at a couple of places on the route, so I'll add some here too.

I can also email specific car pictures to their crews if wanted.


Me too please!

Update....The code board M, that was put on the northern loop of the 12 green dots part of section 3, was indeed missing when I picked up the boards. As nobody got this it's safe to assume it must have been taken overnight.

It makes no difference to the results as such and, on the positive side, you all got 1 less fail than you thought you had.

Ill sort out the pictures and email them to you. Will be in separate emails due to file size.

You'll have to aim for 0th position, so when you get demoted you come 1st!

Did you break the gearknob Richard, or have you decided to convert your auto to a manual O/D?

Richard is converting to manual. I have a 'works rally type gearknob' with overdrive switch which I think he liked. (Although the one on Gertie is better quality I have to say)

Thanks for the compliment Richard, yes, the Pi is quite a car.

Yes, converting to manual od. It was having to put up with screaming revs on the 10CR that finally convinced me. Gearbox is in, overdrive can wait until the new gearknob comes as it's booked in for MOT on Saturday

Some pictures as promised.  These are resized ones to suit the forum but I have full fat ones I can send if you want to create a mural on your lounge wall at home.  I did try attaching some to emails, but I don't think I'm young enough to live that long for them all to upload to my mail service. There are some others too, but not of all crews I'm afraid.  So, I'll burn them to disc and use low tech Royal Mail to post them to you.  Apologies to those crews I did not manage to capture.
