"Controls – Blyth will not be used as it was too busy and not large enough to cope. Lloyd
Reed has been instrumental in securing the use of Knock Hill race circuit which will replace
Kinross. Sugar loaf will not be used. Raglan services on the A40 is under consideration.
Westonzoyland will not be used.
Approaches are being made to Quanton Railway centre at Aylesbury in order to remove the
M25 from this part of the route. "

Copied from the Secretary's Notes.

What will replace Blyth?  Ferrybridge or Wetherby?

If we approach Knockhill from the motorway, will we leave to the north-west towards Powmill - a cracking drivers road.

Will we miss out Llandovery and take the shorter route from Builth Wells to Abergavenny?  That would make up for the extra time getting to and from Knockhill.

Will miss the M25.

Don't get much chance to drive on gridlocked roads up here in the wide open expanses of God's own country.

How about odd numbered crews stop at Ferrybridge and even numbered ones at Wetherby??

Blythe was too soon in 2016 what with the start being on the A1, so moving up the road will be good.

Local knowledge is good for making choices, hopefully it will get picked up on.

We won't...

It won't be long and we will be able to ship you some of our jams.

Living in the Forest of Dean we can check out places from Brecon and Monmouth round to Chepstow.  

What is the problem with Raglan?  I have though in the past it could be OK.

The info within Secs Notes is purely preliminary at present. For example, Knockhill has not been confirmed.

Expect more info when confirmed.

I'm sure ferrybridge is smaller than blyth and not  so easy to get to or back on to the right route, the problem at blyth was the build up of nearly all entrants before the books started to be signed, could of had an earlier start to signing to of helped this.

not so good if in a convoy with friends with opposite numbers trying to keep together.

There's no great problem at Ferrybridge.

The motorway interchange is well signposted.

I've used it twice for refuelling on previous runs.

However, Wetherby is a relatively new motorway service area and much bigger than Blyth.

Plus, it has the advantage of being further away from the start, thus stringing out the cars so that they don't all arrive in such a narrow time window.

The only realistic alternative after that is Scotch Corner but now you're getting closer to the next control at Carter Bar.

Or you could stir things up and have a staggered start with all the small engined and oldest cars leaving the start one hour before the rest of the field.

Jim.

There is always some bright spark to shoot my fantastic ideas down in flames....

How about having a pile of "Wetherby" stop tokens and a pile of "FerryBridge" stop tokens and you take one as you leave and trade it for a signature at the respective services??

You'll need to collect tokens along the route to enter the magic kingdom of Dalriada. (Look it up)

I'll talk to Graham about marshalling again up in Scotland.  Bearing in mind though that he lives between Edinburgh and Perth, a closer point than Skiach may be preferable.  Knockhill would be ideal!
