Lakes 2012 - Saturday 5th May

Time for some information about this year’s lakes tour, preparations are now underway but it will be sometime before we take entry’s probably around the end of February beginning of March. I will try to keep the cost hopefully to the same as last year, but if my costs are higher then so will the entry to tour. I have a lot going on with the tour at the moment and I will try my upmost to make this year tour better than the last years not sure how we are going to top last years as yet.

This year’s lakes tour will be on Saturday 5th May at the Heaves hotel near Kendal. The route as always will be as interesting as we can possibly make it within the time scale and high numbers we accommodate for, there will be a and lunch time meal included in the tour along with a light buffet on your return to the Heaves. I hope to have one or two well know people at the tour this year as invited guests. The tour may not be quite as long as previous years as it’s going to be more about the cars this year!! Isn’t that what it’s all about?

Entries
Only pre 80s RWD fords other makes and models will at the discretion of the organizers.

Camping
Will be available to Lakes tour participants only, I hope to put a mini bus on this year to transport people to and from there hotels and B&B’s so there will be no excuse for you to miss out of the lakes tour atmosphere in the hotel on Saturday evening as its not only about the lakes tour it’s also a social event where we all meet up and talk rubbish about old fords and the tour cars in general. As always there will be awards for cars on the tour which will be presented over the week end.

Theme
The theme for this year will be Works Mk1 & MK2 Escorts and rep rally cars pre 80 RWD, which again could be other models of vehicles of the same era. I have been contacted by some owners of such cars that will hopefully make an appearance at the Lakes this year to form, a very interesting display for the show on Sunday some of the cars will also take part in the tour on Saturday. But we must remember the golden rule IT’S A TOUR NOT A RALLY!!

If you have a works car or rep rally car please get in touch with me if you would like to bring it along if you haven’t done already, we would love to see it in the display.
I will be looking for a sponsor for this display who will be willing to put together an award for the best turned out car of the day in the display.

Cumbria RSOC and Lakes tour show is on Sunday 6th May at the Heaves hotel Kendal.

---> Please show you interest in entering this year Lakes Tour by adding to this post

Many Thanks

Father oggie (as that‘s my adopted name apparently)

PS nothing will be done with the tour over the week end of the 14th of February as it bobby loves 50th birthday party and we will be overcome by alcohol he’s paying lol
