Welcome to the Ilkley Jubilee Historic and Targa Rally for 2023. Alongside the traditional Interclub Historic Rally there was also a Targa event for those who only hold RS Clubmans licences. As well as historic cars, this was also open to modern cars which complied with current Road Rally regulations.

The event once again started from Leyburn on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, and finished at the Golf Club in Catterick Garrison. With the kind permission of the land Owners, we were able to use the military ranges near Catterick and the Farm land nearby. The compact route was entirely on Map 99. With 10 special Tests and 8 Regularities. 3 of the Regularities were on Private Land.

Historic Cars in the Interclub event used the general navigation techniques familiar to those who have competed on HRCR level rallies before. The Targa Rally used Jogularity tables, Tulips, and distance and time or Marked Maps. The timing for the marked map sections was presented as speed & distance charts, so there was no need to use speed tables. An accurate trip meter was very advantageous !
