The Lancashire Automobile Club Classic Challenge 2016

Once again the Challenge got off to a great start with the St Georges Day Run ably organised by Anthony Taylor and the usual suspects. Next came

John Hartley’s fiendish Fellsman event. We had a good turnout turn out, if not good weather, on the Manchester to Blackpool and then some excellent new roads on the Coast to Coast; The Highland made for a truly grand finale.

We have awarded points for entering and taking part in both the runs and, where applicable, the Concours events. The Ray Clarke Memorial Award

goes to John Hartley who scored on every event achieving the highest overall score. The Drivers award goes to Andrew Ogden only 5 points

behind and the Navigators Award goes to Deborah Smith. It is pleasing to see just how many organisers are recognised in this year’s scores with many regular drivers and navigators helping out both in organising events and on the day. It is most pleasing that Sandra Williams takes the organisers award. Well done Sandra.

This year we are again awarding our overall winner the Ray Clarke Trophy donated by his family. Ray was a stalwart of the LAC and the guiding hand behind our classic events for many years so this trophy is very appropriate.

As always we would like to thank all the officials and marshals who made the events run so well and of course our sponsors for making it possible.

May I thank all of you who took part in the Classic Challenge.

Here’s to 2017.

Many thanks Chris Lee Challenge Compiler
