Monte Carlo Historique/Classique 2018 Paisley Start

Post by perkyimp » Fri Dec 29, 2017 7:31 pm

I hope that the Imp Club membership will show support for Scott Fanning and Hugh Liddle as they head off in their big adventure to Monte Carlo in Scotts Imp on the 31st January 2018 from Paisley. I have attended most of the recent Monte Carlo starts from both Glasgow and Paisley and I also plan to be there next year to wave them off in a show of support for all the hard work and preparation that has been put into the car in recent months. There is also going to be a starting point from Aberdeen again this year so there is time for entries to do this along with an entry to do the associated short scenic routes on the night from the start line at Paisley.

Mike

I'm navigating for Dave Charles in his Rally Imp from the Aberdeen start to Paisley and then on to Stirling and then back home for Dave to Newport near Dundee.
Not quite Monte Carlo but a good days drive.

Wish Scott and Hugh well on their adventure, would be good to see something posted on here about it.

Scott,
Brilliant another Imp albeit on the Heritage Run is a great showing for the Imp Club. Fran and I are intending heading to Glasgow early that day and have booked accommodation for the night to see the cars so we should be able to see you and Dave when you arrive at Paisley. I believe there are to be seventeen cars leaving Aberdeen so you should have company on the way down to Paisley.

All the best
Mike

What's the route through the UK from Paisley?

Do they leave UK via Dover or are the leaving from Portsmouth/Poole along the South coast?

The cars will leave Paisley at 6pm on the 31st January 2018 and head South with control points including Dumfries in the South of Scotland, Barnby Moor in Nottinghamshire and Banbury in Oxfordshire before heading for the Dover -Calais crossing for the journey through France to Monte Carlo. Updated information and entry lists for the Monte Carlo Historique and Classique Entrants can be easily sourced off the web.

I've taken part in all the Paisley Monte Carlo starts, abet in the Heritage Runs. Would love to do the run to Monte Carlo at some point it time. The Heritage Runs to Luss, Balmaha and the Stirling have journeyed through some amazing roads throughout the Central Belt. Favourite being over the Campsies to Fintry in the snow and ice a few years ago. Plan to do the Stirling Heritage run this year in OAP.

The official passage control point at the Market Place, Banbury opens between 11.30am and 2.30pm on Thursday 1st February 2018 to receive the entered cars. Please note that there are to be road closures to aid the event. The event coincides with the Banbury Charter Market which will include extra food stalls whilst Oxford Motor Club will have a display of classic cars.

Jim Fraser has also recently posted an article on the 'Imp going to Monte Carlo' in the General Information section of this Forum which has a good interview with Scott and Hugh about their forthcoming adventure.

Well done Scott looking forward to seeing you all at Paisley unfortunately I can not make the start at Aberdeen due to travel arrangements heading South on the day. When are you and Dave heading to the start at Aberdeen?

I can confirm that Scott Fanning and Hugh Liddle driving their Hillman Imp car 402 have arrived safely in Monte Carlo having travelled over 1500 trouble free miles from their starting point of Paisley. They both celebrated their arrival with others at the formal dinner at the Automobile Club of Monaco last night. I personally would like to thank everybody who has given these lads the well deserved support for such an achievement and for putting the Imp in the International spotlight. Congratulations Scott and Hugh.
