Tour revealed in honour of Mort
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.”
