Bath Motor Club welcomes you to the 2019 edition of the Aquae Sulis Tour which offers around 100 miles of Somerset and North Dorset countryside.
This year the organisers have changed the start venue to visit some areas not covered in previous tours. This year the tour will start from Farrington Park Golf Club about 12 miles to the South West of Bath.
The route will travel through Somerset and North Dorset to a lunch stop at Montacute House, an Elizabethan Mansion, owned by the National Trust, set in beautiful gardens where you will have ample time to explore and have light refreshments in the Courtyard café or a picnic on the lawns.
After lunch the route will travel through North Dorset and South Somerset to finish at our regular venue at Orchardleigh Golf Club in the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate near Frome for the usual high quality carvery meal.
The entry fee for the tour will be £75 per car. For this entry fee, you will receive an easy to read comprehensive Tulip style road book, an Aquae Sulis Tour rally plate, each entrant will receive one email photograph from our super official photographer, Andy Manston, entrance to the grounds and café at Montacute House, a breakfast roll and drink at the start and a choice of a 4 meat carvery meal at the finish.
After a very successful event again in 2018 we encourage you to enter early.
The 2018 edition of the Aquae Sulis Tour offered around 100 miles of the finest East Wiltshire and North Somerset countryside.
The tour started from the Georgian City of Bath where participants had the opportunity to see some of the famous buildings during the beginning of the tour.
The route then travelled through East Wiltshire to a lunch stop at Wilton House, near Salisbury, set in 22 acres of parkland and gardens where we got to enjoy the gardens, the house and a visit the Earl of Pembroke’s classic car collection .
After lunch we travelled through North Somerset to finish at our regular venue at Orchardleigh Golf Club in the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate near Frome for the usual high quality carvery meal.
Thanks to everyone who took part and we look forward to seeing you in 2019.
Thank you to everyone who supported the 2017 Aquae Sulis Tour.
The annual Aquae Sulis Tour ran very successfully over a scenic Wiltshire, Somerset and Dorset route of 110 miles with a full 56 car entry list with a wonderful group of superb cars ranging from the earliest car, a 1937 Austin Ten Ripley sports through to the more recent Porsche 911 Carrera.
The weather was superb as was the route and the venues all played their part to make a special day.
As usual Orchardleigh Golf Club provided an excellent breakfast and carvery meal at the finish. Thanks to the generosity of the participants and Bath MC we are able to donate a further £374 to the Great Western Air Ambulance (Details Here)
