MALTON Motor Club have announced that their Historic road rally, the White Rose Classic, will be running this year on Sunday, July 7, and will be based in the club's home town.

A route of approximately 140 miles of classic Yorkshire roads will be broken up with a series of tests on private tracks with mixed surfaces.

The public road sections will consist of a number of regularity sections where crews will have to solve navigation instructions in the usual formats for Historic rallies. Ordnance Survey maps 100 and 101 will be used.

All cars in the event will be pre-1986 and must conform to the relevant MotorsportUK regulations. It is anticipated that a wide variety of cars will participate from Porsche 911s to Mini Coopers and many more in between.

The event will be the sixth round of the Motorsport News Historic Road Rally Clubman's Championship and the Malton Club expect competitors from all over the country to participate. There will be classes for masters, experts and novices.

The winners of the last event were Paul Crosby from Northampton and Ryan Pickering in their Porsche 911.

Regulations for the event will be published on the club's website in April and an online entries system will be used. Details will be published on
