Date set for AutoRaise Rally

AutoRaise has announced the 2023 AutoRaise Rally will take place from 7-9 September, following a route through East Anglia and the Lincolnshire Wolds.

The official starting grid will be at Lotus Cars’ HQ in Hethel, Norfolk.

Day one will see all drivers setting off from the starting grid at Lotus Cars’ HQ in Hethel, Norfolk before heading up the Norfolk coast, going inland to Cambridgeshire and then back onto the Lincolnshire Coast before making its way to Brigg.

Day two sees participants leaving Brigg and taking in the stunning scenery of the Lincolnshire Wolds before ending the day in Lincoln where there will be a drinks reception along with dinner and entertainment provided by the Wilderminds who performed at our 2022 event. On Saturday morning, everyone will enjoy breakfast at their leisure before heading off to their respective homes and a well deserved rest.

Jen Evans, AutoRaise business manager, said: “We hope to sell out this year’s Rally and make it as much fun as 2022. I have put a huge effort into choosing the vast array of pit stops and activities en route. I just want people to enjoy themselves, and most importantly raise as much money as we possibly can.”

Steve Thompson, AutoRaise vice chair, said: “After the most successful AutoRaise Rally to date last year, we have given ourselves a huge challenge to exceed this, in terms of fun, networking and fund raising! Our decision to stay in the UK and take in three counties on our two-day ‘Viking themed’ rally was an easy one for us. We are hopeful that this will encourage more entrants from across the industry.”

Anticipated cost per team including all meals, accommodation, lunches, refreshment breaks, drinks receptions and provided entertainment will be £1,500.

Places will be reserved strictly on a first-come, first-served basis and by making a £500 deposit per team. The deadline for places is Monday 27 March 2023, although preference will be given to previous competitors, AutoRaise Partners and Affiliated Repairers.
