Ilkley Jubilee Historic Rally and Run

Spectator Guide

About 85 cars from the 50’s through to the early 80’s, with most being from the 60’s and 70’s are taking part in this annual event organised by Ilkley and District Motor Club. The list of cars is available here.
We have complied a list of where the cars will be stopping and some the locations along the route the cars will pass. Hopefully they will give a great vantage point for watching the event. The rally will take up to two hours to pass.
Most of the other locations which the cars visit are private property so unfortunately spectators cannot be admitted. Times below are for the first car.
In Car 1 this year is a green Porsche belonging to Paul Crosby with local navigator Andy Pullan. Andy has won the event for the past two years so can he become the first person to do the hat-trick of wins but for this year with a different driver as this is Paul’s first Jubilee.  Another local this time, a driver in Car 5 is Ron Beecroft who dominated road rallies in the 70’s and 80’s being Motoring News champion in ‘81, ‘85 and again in 1987. This is his first historic rally and he is in a Ford Escort RS2000.
