With only a little over a week until the 2017 Aquae Sulis Tour it is time to check the final details.
All of the registered entrants should have received a set of final instructions and an entry list. If you haven't received them yet they are available below.
Bath Motor Club welcomes you to the 2017 Aquae Sulis Tour.
The Aquae Sulis Tour offers you a drive of approximately 110 miles of roads around the wonderful Dorset, Wiltshire and Somerset countryside. It is the organisers aim to have mostly pre-1991 vehicles, but more modern “interesting” vehicles will be welcome at the organisers discretion.
The start will be at the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate, near Frome, Somerset where a hot breakfast sandwich and tea or coffee will be provided, at the Orchardleigh Golf Club.
From there the route will travel South, through scenic Wiltshire and Dorest to a lunch stop at Sherborne Castle and Gardens, Dorset, a 16th-century Tudor mansion and estate, situated East of Yeovil. Here you will have ample time to enjoy the house and gardens and take some refreshment from the café. We have also negotiated a discounted rate for those who would like to take a trip around the Castle.
After lunch you will return through picturesque Dorset and South Somerset finishing at the Orchardleigh Estate. Here a single course carvery with a choice of 3 roasts and all the trimmings will be served in the golf club restaurant.
For the entry fee of £70 you will receive a fully comprehensive tulip road book, an Aquae Sulis Tour rally plate, entrance to the grounds of Sherborne Castle, breakfast roll and drink at the start and a single course carvery meal at the finish.
After a successful event in 2015 and 2016, and the fact the event is limited to 55 cars we recommend that to avoid disappointment an early entry is submitted to the organisers.
Bath Motor Club are also looking to raise money for its chosen charity – Great Western Air Ambulance. There is an opportunity to contribute to this charity with your entry fee.
We look forward to welcoming you to this annual event with the members of Bath Motor Club.
Thank you to everyone who came out on the 2016 Aquae Sulis Tour. The weather was kind, the cars were beautiful and everyone enjoyed themselves.
We have a report from Geoff and Pat Sutton in car No. 20 (MR2) which gives a flavour of the day from the driving seat. Available to view HERE.
Thanks again to everyone for making it another successful day and see you all again in 2017.
