Tour re­vealed in hon­our of Mort

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

The 2300 Club has or­gan­ised an event to pay trib­ute to one of its mem­bers – Andy Mort – who died on the Mull Rally last year.

The Andy Mort Tour will take place on Oc­to­ber 22, and takes in parts of Lan­cashire and York­shire.

The event is classed by the MSA as a tour­ing as­sem­bly, so non­com­pe­ti­tion cars are wel­come to en­ter.

The event will to­tal around 140 miles and starts from the Best Western Ho­tel at Myt­ton Fold. The en­try fee is ex­pected to be £50.

Stuart Pye, a mem­ber of the 2300 Club and one of the event or­gan­is­ers, said: “He be­came part of our or­gan­is­ing team, he was one of those peo­ple who you could trust to do any task. He was one of those bub­bly char­ac­ters.

“Im­me­di­ately we wanted to recog­nise Andy’s ef­forts at the club af­ter his death and we thought the event should be in his name. I think there’s a lot of peo­ple who knew Andy who want to come to­gether again and to talk and re­mem­ber his life.”
