17th/18th/19th May – Northern Rally, Wetherby Racecourse

The Rally moves back to its normal weekend in May but we have ordered the same good weather as last year so here’s hoping. The running order for weekend is now finalised but you can keep up to speed with any changes or announcements on the newly established Northern Rally website http://www.citroencarclubnorthernrally.com

As usual Friday is set up day around the site buildings but those hardy souls who come for the weekend will be able to set up their tents or caravans from midday if they wish. In the evening, there will be a social in the main room as usual probably with a quiz courtesy of Geoff Henthorn.

Saturday sees the traders operational. There will be a little mystery run in the afternoon for those that want to see the countryside around Wetherby and the technical forum might well be available in the afternoon (to be confirmed). The BBQ will be lit at 5.30pm for those wanting to make use of it but please remember - BRING YOUR OWN FOOD

The evening entertainment will be Songsational, West Yorkshire based singing group whose repertoire ranges from musicals through 60s and 70s classics to the modern day. There’s even comedy thrown in as well. See what people think of them by having a look at their website http://www.songsational.co.uk Don’t forget, there isn’t a bar so bring your own alcoholic drinks but crisps and soft drinks will be available.

Sunday is the main attraction as ever with the judging for various prize categories. If you want your car to be judged then please ensure it’s on the hard standing outside the café by 12 noon. Judging will be completed by 2.00pm and the prize giving will be a round 3.30pm followed by the raffle draw.

Last year’s Trophy winners should contact David Keeton (see Regional Contacts page) to confirm if they are attending this year’s Rally and will return their trophy on the day or if not to arrange collection of that particular trophy before the Rally.

There will be a paint restoration company called Restore attending who may be able to undertake small paint jobs at the Rally or at least make arrangements to do work at your home. I’m also hoping to have another company called Dent Devils in attendance who can remove small dents without the need to paint.

There will be a separate technical forum for Members to ask about any issues with their cars although you shouldn’t necessarily assume it will be fixed at the event.

We will have a display of Birds of Prey and we intend this year to make use of the infamous “Wetherby breeze” blowing across the racecourse to have kite flying so make sure you or the kids come prepared.

Catering wise the café will be available during the day on Saturday and Sunday selling teas, coffees, soft drinks, sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and crisps and, on Sunday between about 9.30am and 11.30am depending on demand, the now famous Mandy’s Bacon Sarnies!

An additional attraction on Sunday this year will be Streatza, pizza’s from a red H Van that you may remember from ICCCR2012 last year. They write:-

We are a mobile pizzeria and street food kitchen called Streatza, operating from a 1969 Citroen H van. Our main product is high quality hand stretched pizzas which we prepare to order and cook on board in our wood fired oven. We also sell arancini (deep fried risotto balls stuffed with mozzarella cheese), and panzerotti (savoury mini calzone, also deep fried). We prepare everything ourselves, including making our own dough from genuine Italian Caputo flour. Our food is all suitable for vegetarians. We have a very convincing vegetarian chorizo pizza to keep the meat lovers happy, and we also offer a vegan cheese option, so we are able to cater for everyone.

A number of other clubs are being invited; 2CVGB, Traction Owners Club, Peugeot Owners Club, Renault Owners Club together with the various on-line Citroen model forums.

Day entry prices remain the same which is no charge Friday and Saturday and £5 for Sunday for (any) Club Members on production of a current Membership card or £6 for non-Members. There is a slight change in the camping pricing structure which is; £15 per camping unit for Saturday night or £20 per camping unit for the whole weekend, both prices include entry to the Rally on Sunday.

So make a note in your diaries of the dates and, if you have access to the internet, keep a look out for updates on the Rally website (see above), the Club website and on the Section’s Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/124733034271415/ and Twitter site @CCCNorthern

I would love to go but I'll be on my belated honeymoon so can't attend, and no, I'm not brave enough to suggest 3 nights in Yorkshire opposed to 7 nights in the tropics
