Based at Sywell Aerodrome our new Spitfire Scramble Rally includes two days of regularity and tests from the Art Deco setting of Sywell. At the end of the event all the names of the participants will be put into a flying hat and thedramatic draw will take place during the prize giving. With the rally limited to 30 cars you have a great chance of winning this incredible flight.

Saturday April 30th 

Arriving at Sywell on Saturday April 30th in the morning you will sign in and collect your rally bag, tulip road book, Virtual Marshal™, rally plates, souvenirs, regulations etc. We automatically check you into the fabulous Art Deco Aviator Hotel. Cars then start at one minute intervals heading out on to the Aerodrome for a test before tackling the scenic 140 km route. 

Arriving back late in the day we have arranged dinner for all in the Aviator restaurant which also has pays homage to the Art Deco movement. There are photos on display going back to the construction of the airfield and records of its wartime activities where it was home to hundreds of Tiger Moths used to train WW2 pilots. We have arranged a late bar so that you can enjoy these unique surroundings.

On Sunday morning we have another fantastic route to keep you enthralled. As on Saturday we have great scenery coupled with stops for coffee breaks.
