The 10th Flying Scotsman 2018
April 26 - April 29
In his introduction to the 1st Flying Scotsman, back in 2009, Philip Young wrote:
“WELCOME to the first London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman – the longest and perhaps the toughest rally in Britain for vintage cars. There is nothing quite like this in terms of distance and magnitude… and nothing else quite like this exclusively for Pre-war cars.”
Making that early vision reality, a huge number of vintage car enthusiasts have gathered each year to experience the wonderful journey through some of the most beautiful landscapes that Britain has to offer. Along the way they have enjoyed great company and all manner of tests, trials and tribulations to challenge and engage the driving talents, time keeping skills and navigational prowess of each and every crew.
For the 10th Anniversary celebration, the Flying Scotsman returns to its roots with an exciting new ‘Brooklands to Edinburgh’ route. As in 2017, route designers Anthony Preston and Lee Vincent are working with the whole ERA team to devise four days of exceptional open road vintage motoring; once again we are looking to build on our hard won reputation for finding the roads less travelled and exciting new test venues all the way to Edinburgh where another warm Scottish welcome is assured.
