2018Rallylogo

May 25th to 27th 2018

The 2018 International Rally is being held near Diss, Norfolk and the Club's thanks go to Steve Alleyne who is hosting the event. As well as providing the land, Steve is also building and converting other buildings to provide cover and suitable meeting areas, plus the normal "conveniences" you expect at a camp site! A workshop has been built which will host some Technical events. More information and the results of a visit are detailed in the Summer 2017 Sidelights magazine (posted out to members in November 2017), and some is posted below.

Diss1 "The first one is looking across the main rally field where we will have the arena and line up the cars. The big building in the middle background is the main barn/club room with the smaller building to the right being the toilet and shower block. We will also have a few portable toilets in the camping field as we don’t want anyone falling into the river during the night! (The bridge is just out of shot on the left of the picture).

The picture below is a view from the camping field looking across the river to the main rally field with the bridge in the foreground.

The building in the background is the workshop where the technical demonstrations will take place. The shot below shows the camping field which features a big pond with an island in the middle with trees on either side. There are several small clearings in the trees which can also accommodate some groups of campers and should be very secluded! The next view is looking across the camping field towards the trees with the bridge on the left. This shows the pond with its island and also the numerous clearings that Stephen has created to expand the camping capacity and make things more interesting! This shows one of the clearings in the trees which is ideal for groups who want to camp together. We’ve earmarked the most distant clearing for the London Group! For those who don’t want to drive over the bridge, there is a flat and level area behind the main barn that we can use if required. The river is at the bottom of the field by the weeping willow. The toilet block is just out of shot, to the left of the main barn. Hopefully, these photographs give some idea of the layout and show what an interesting venue it is."
