Run-Related News: Veterans Take to the Road Once More for Creepy Crawly 2019
For many owners of veteran cars, April will provide the first opportunity of the year for a shake-down of their pride and joy with the annual Creepy Crawly Rally hosted by the Mid-East Section of the Veteran Car Club. Running on the 26 - 29 April, the Rally has been taking place for over 25 years and remains a testament to the event’s founder, Bryan Firth, who recognised the need for a relaxed weekend of motoring in the spring.
One of the main attractions is that the event specifically caters for early and primitive machines with routes to suit their low power on quiet country byways, and as a result the event attracts entrants from all over the EU as well as the UK. The event already has over eighty cars entered which will cover upwards of sixty miles each day.
This year’s event is based just outside Norwich at Dunston Hall and on the Sunday the entrants will be hosted by Clive Chapman to tour the family collection of Lotus competition cars at the new facility built for Classic Team Lotus in Hethel.
The weekend is not all about driving – there will be plenty of time to catch up with friends after the winter break and there is also a chance to sample the Dunston’s golf course with a golf challenge on Friday 26 April.
Although entries on the Rally are fully booked for this year, anybody interested in spectating are encouraged to head to Wymondham High Street on Saturday 27 April at 10.30am, where they will see around 80 veterans trundling past. Several car clubs are also set to attend the morning, making it an ideal spot for participants of the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run to enjoy an early season gathering with like-minded enthusiasts as they prepare for the season finale on the first weekend of November.
