We look forward to seeing you all their.
The roadbook has now been finalised (thanks Melvyn) and should not be missed. No use wishing you had done it afterwards. The 105 mile route will be split into four halves. Starting from Shrewsbury we traverse the Long Mynd to the morning tea halt at the Glider Station then it is back via the Stiperstones for petrol in Church Stretton followed by lunch at Acton Scott Working Farm.
From here we go via Delbury Hall (recently added), to the afternoon tea halt at Knowbury, near to Titterstone Clee Hill, then back to the Food Centre at Ludlow for sit down meal.
The route has two characteristics. The first half traverses roads previously used on MN and Goggin rallies with some twisty stuff but stunning scenery. The second half is very relaxing, again with great scenery. Just one small ford!
Do not miss this run. It will not be repeated again in such a beautiful part of the country. Put your entry in now.

Thank you to all the competitors who entered and took part in the Graham Hill Trophy Sprint on 9th June 2019. We are sure that you would like to thank all the volunteers, without whom we could not put on this event.
We were very lucky with the weather in that those few sports of rain just faded away and we had a great dry afternoon.
The results for the timed runs can be downloaded from below.
