UK's Toughest Classic Car Rally 'LeJog' Sets off on December 1st

The LeJog classic car rally will see drivers battling the wintry weather condition on an epic 1,400 mile course between Land’s End and John O’Groats from December 1st to 4th.

Over 60 cars are to leave Land’s End on a route across Britain that will see them travelling through Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Wales, Shropshire, Cheshire, Lancashire, North Yorkshire, Northumbria, Northumberland, East Lothian, West Lothian, North Lanarkshire, and across Scotland to John O’Groats over the four day period.

Hero’s Event Director and Clerk of the Course for LeJog, Peter Nedin, said: “LeJog is one of the toughest events of its kind in Europe, possibly the world, and we constantly strive to maintain this enviable reputation. We have no idea what the weather will bring but it certainly won’t stop the drivers who will do all they can to finish the course no matter what the conditions are.”

All sorts of cars, built before 1984, will be taking part including a 1957 MGA coupe driven by Curt Wagner and Horst Pokroppa, a 1965 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL driven by Jochen Gabriel and Onder Turker and a 1974 Datzun 240 Z driven by Riccardo Moraldi and Pietro Turrinelli, amongst others including BMWs, Alfa Romeos, Triumphs and Porsches.
