RAID TAN HILL 2000
took place on Sunday, 9th January 2000
70 cars, 1 H-van & their passengers celebrated the new-year at Great Britain's highest inn - 1,732 feet or 533 metres above sea level.
We made it again ... all the way there with almost no snow.
The following article (with two poorly reproduced photographs) appeared soon after in “Classic & Sports Car
'RaidTan Hill'.an annual event organised by Les Hiboux (The Owls, Leeds 2CV Owners' Club),
was held on January 9, attracting 80 cars for the 60-mile run from the outskirts of Leeds to the Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in the UK. Tin snail enthusiasts from as far afield as Kent and Edinburgh met for the trip along the narrow roads and steep ascents and descents of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It must have sounded like a mobile sewing-machine factory!
