Saturday 2nd July 2022

Tavern Motor Club is pleased to present the second running of the Cotswold Historic which is a round of the HRCR Clubmans Road Rally Championship, with the same organising team.

This year’s event will follow the successful format used in 2021, but starting near Cirencester.

There will be 10-12 Special Tests on a variety of surfaces, at 3 venues including Charlton Park and Kemble Airfield. The tests will be linked by around 100 miles split into 6 Regularity sections.

 

First car will depart at 8:30am, with stops for coffee and lunch, before returning to the finish around 5.00pm for an evening meal.

 

There will also be a Clubman Event running alongside the HRCR Event to allow less experienced competitors to compete over the same route.  A complete roadbook will be provided.

 

Once again, we will be making donations to the local Air Ambulance Charities from the proceeds of the event.

We hope you can join us in the Cotswolds in July.

On the 20th October Tavern Motor Club were able to formally present a ‘cheque’ for £1000 to GWAAC.  This donation was jointly raised by the competitors of the Cotswold Historic Road Rally, an event the club organised earlier this year, and Tavern MC. 

Part of our visit was talk by Joe Hughes, their Charity Team Corporate & Community Organiser.  He explained that there is a misconception by the public that the helicopter is a fast means of transport to get injured people to hospital, mostly from remote locations.  This is only partly true.  The personnel on the helicopter are highly trained in critical care and once they have arrived at an emergency, they give medical care to the patient on the ground including some complex procedures normally associated with the hospital operating theatre then stabilise them before then taking them to the nearest hospital. 

Unfortunately, the helicopter was out on a call for the duration of our visit, so we presented our ‘cheque’ to Joe with the three rapid response vehicles as a backdrop.

Babdown Farm tests and scrutineering also donated £150.

 

Tavern MC also donated £1000 to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
