Little Devils Tour 2024

A Touring Assembly (not competitive) on Sunday September 2024. The format will be the same as last year, with a Tulip Road book, some manned passage checks and code boards to collect on the way round. This is just for fun and there are no awards for staying on the advised route.

The route will once again include some classic road rally sections followed by a scenic detour into lesser known parts of the Lake District and a run back to the Crooklands via more old road rally routes.

To enter please use the link below and follow the instructions. Payments need to be sent either by cheque or bank transfer to Kirkby's account.

BOB MILLOY (3 Aug 1949 – 15 Feb 2022)

We are saddened to report the sudden death of Bob, for many years KLMC Secretary and Vice Chairman.

 He will be known to every rally crew as the chap who thrust a microphone in front of you at the end of an event, ready to hear your stories from the day’s competition and transmitting to the assembled spectators. He also commentated on stage rallies at Oulton Park and hillclimbs at Barbon, broadcasting a wealth of information about every competitor.

Living in South Cumbria but originally from Cheshire, Bob was a regular road rally navigator in the 1970’s and also competed on car trials in a Clan Crusader. Later he could often be found co-driving on stage rallies. He was also a regular race marshal at Oulton Park, and a MSA Steward at events across the northern half of the UK.

He was an official of Stockport Motor Club until his move northwards, where he became an official of Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club and secretary of their stage rallies.

As Chairman of ANWCC he regularly attended the Regional Committee meetings of MUK, forthright in his views and always willing to discuss all aspects of motor sport with the ANWCC officials.

At last week’s AGM of the Association Bob stood down to make way for a younger person, having passed on much of his knowledge and wisdom to his successor. He will be truly missed by the many who knew him.

Details of the funeral will be published on our Facebook page when known.
