The 11th Flying Scotsman 2019

The 11th Flying Scotsman Vintage Motor Rally 2019
Friday 5 to Sunday 7 April, 2019
Unlike so much in modern life, quality endures, such as the finest vintage motorcars and the real steam-powered Flying Scotsman. The same, dare we say it, applies to great motoring adventures. Built on the rock solid concept and foundations that the ERA founder, Philip Young, laid down a decade ago we have a lot to live up to. It's no small responsibility but the accolades of countless returning competitors spurs the whole Flying Scotsman organising team to continue seeking ways to enhance this event while maintaining it's hard earned position as the premier rally designed exclusively for Vintage motorcars.
In 2019, the 11th edition Flying Scotsman moves close to the action with a northern start on the shores of Windermere in the heart of the magnificent Lake District National Park. Route Designer and Clerk of the Course, Anthony Preston, is burning the midnight oil to craft yet another of his remarkable routes that will be sure to provide a challenge for the competitive while remaining accessible and enjoyable for everyone and anyone that relishes three days driving some of the most outstanding roads in England and Scotland in the company of like minded enthusiasts. From Start to the Finish another very fine Flying Scotsman is in prospect.
The 11th Flying Scotsman will be flagged away bright and early from Windermere on Friday 5 April for a day of scenic driving and exciting new challenges as the route explores the lesser known byways of Cumbria and the Northern Pennines en route to an overnight rest in the sidings at Slaley Hall.
Day two allows crews to build up a head of steam as they enter Scotland and head west to the rugged hills of Dumfries and Galloway for further superb vintage motoring. After a long day on the road, the luxurious surroundings of the Turnberry golf resort will be a welcome sight for weary crews.
The third and final day embraces new territory for the Flying Scotsman as the route journeys north into the magnificent surroundings of the Southern Highlands before triumphally arriving at the final terminus - the world renowned Gleneagles Hotel.

I don't know how you do it, but each year is better than the one before. Just when I think it can't get any better, it does. Not only was the route simply wonderful, beautiful and exiting, but the organization surrounding the Rally is simply top notch. Well done!
