Manchester to Blackpool 2019 Route Maps

Please note the Red line denotes the ‘Scenic’ Run this is more challenging for car and driver and is more suited to the more adventurous Vintage car driver and Classics and Cherished cars. This route is longer with more severe or long inclines and declines.

The short sections of blue line denote the deviations from the ‘Scenic’ Route which we call the ‘Direct’ Route. This is somewhat shorter avoiding steep or long inclines and declines and is designed around a small pre war car such as an Austin 7.

Finaly we arrange a shorter route (which in 2019 would have started from our Control at Bowker BMW and MINI at Preston Dock) which follows the red route to Blackpool.

Timings and mileages for all three routes are arranged so that if car 1 followed any of the 3 routes it would arrive at the finish at roughly the same time!  The Direct Route was some 81 miles and the Scenic some 103 miles.

These are a few pictures from the event. Special thanks to Nigel Bentley, Mike Wood and Steve Townsend for the pictures.
