  • Title: 2013 John Easson Award Winner | 2300 Club
    Descriptive info: 2300 Club are pleased to announce the winner of the 2013 John Easson Award.. Chris Ingram.. Chris has been chosen as the winner of this year’s £4,000 prize fund to assist him with his rallying activities during the 2014 season.. Chris was the choice of the selection committee after 3 hours of deliberations, which saw the attending finalists travel to Preston to take part in a one on one interview with the panel of judges, Allan Whittaker former international co-driver and boss of Motordrive Seats, Co driver legend Ian Grindrod, and boss of Cope Engineering and the vastly experienced rally driver John Cope.. Chris emerged as winner after a very close run contest with runners up Arron Newby and Aaron McClure who both made a very determined challenge for the award.. Chairman of the judging panel, Allan Whittaker of 2300 Club said following the interviews.. “.. Once again this year the standard of applicants has been extremely high, choosing the finalists was in itself a very difficult job for the selection committee, but choosing a winner from the finalists was even more difficult, it is unfortunate that there could only be one winner, however we feel Chris will be a worthy recipient of the John Easson Award and of course we wish runners up Arron Aaron the very best of luck with her continued rallying.. ”.. On behalf of 2300 Club I would like to thank all of this year’s applicants for taking part and look forward to seeing you again next year.. John Easson Award Scheme Manager.. One thought on.. 2300 Club Webmaster.. February 9, 2014 at 10:02 pm.. Youngest Driver Learns in Latvia.. 2014 started with new experiences all round for Chris Ingram the 2013 John Easson Award Winner for UK  ...   studs out of the tyres.. The learning experiences continued throughout the first day as a puncture was picked up early into the final, but monster 30-kilometre night stage.. A bad decision to drive to the end of the stage was made by Chris, which worsened the condition of the tyre and wheel nocking the brake caliper and ripping the fluid pipe off, resulting in no brakes to make the day even more frustrating for the whole team!.. Day 2 consisted of a mix of tight and twisty, and fast flowing stages.. Young Ingram settled down after a frantic first day and began to enjoy the incredible experience that is driving on ice with studded tyres.. The highlight of the event was the final stage of the rally, the 26 kilometre Liepaja stage, which saw the Twingo overcome brake issues to fly to 5th fastest Junior car, being beaten by the eventual winner Jan Cerny and three scandinavian snow experts.. A great positive and confidence boost to take from a difficult rally for the ERC s youngest driver.. Despite all the issues we have had to tackle, I am still so happy to have competed on such a incredible rally! Taking an early 5 points to the Circuit of Ireland could be very important.. I was very happy to set 5th fastest time on one of our few clean stages on the final stage and this shows how much I learnt and improved throughout the weekend.. The 2013 John Easson Award winner Chris Ingram would like to thank Carl Williamson, JB Malherbe Racing Spirit, Renault Sport, FIA ERC and everyone that supported him on his winter rally debut!.. The next round of the ERC Junior is Ingram s favourite; the Circuit of Ireland (17-19 April)..

  • Title: Club History | 2300 Club
    Descriptive info: The 2300 Club began life as the motoring section of a factory sports’ club in Blackburn in 1955.. The factory was Mullards, part of the Philips’ empire, with over 5,000 employees.. The Club was originally the Mullard Motor Cycle and Car Club, but this overlong title was shortened by taking the initial letters as Roman Numerals (MMCCC) and translating them to 2300.. The Club did all the usual things for a number of years.. Navigational rallies, treasure hunts, club nights, cheap tyres and exhausts, but catering for its own members.. The first big step forward was in 1959 with the first Mullard Trophy, a restricted rally to which outside clubs were invited.. The event became an annual affair and was so well received that by 1963 the Mullard Trophy Rally was invited to become a qualifying round for the Motoring News Championship and, with the exception of one year, remained in that prestigious Championship until it came to an end in 1987.. The rallies of the 1960s were in the hands of Arthur Rogers, and were all outstandingly successful, high speed road events.. We used north Lancashire, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, but it gradually became apparent that the residents of these areas were understandably less than enamoured by these regular night time intrusions by ourselves and many other Clubs.. In 1968 the Committee concluded that they would not be organising any more events of this nature.. The problems were becoming too great and too intractable.. 1968 happened to be the year when Brian Molyneux and his family had a holiday on the Isle of Mull and the germ of a ridiculous idea was sown.. The roads of Mull were ideal for rallying.. Narrow, tortuous and, in places, quite frightening, they would provide a serious test of rallying skills.. The Club was surprised by the enthusiasm the suggestion generated, and was concerned that, perhaps, not everyone knew what they were letting themselves in for.. However, most Island people saw it as a boost to tourism and the various authorities involved were extremely helpful.. We had to rely on the goodwill of the Mull farmers to make sure that the sheep and cattle which abound on the roads of the Island were safely out of the way, something they have done for the 26 years of the event.. The co-operation from all quarters was quite splendid, but still, as the fateful October date in 1969 approached, the organisers were apprehensive in the extreme about the outcome.. They needn’t have worried.. Virtually everyone seemed happy.. The competitors with the challenge they faced and the welcome they received, and the Island people with the bonhomie of the visitors and the spectacle they brought (and, perhaps, the money).. The children of Mull particularly enjoyed the noise, the colour and the razzmatazz which is not normally a feature of life on the Island.. The newspapers called it “The Happy Rally” and urged us to “Haste Ye Back”.. After that sort of reception we had every intention of doing so.. Between 1969 and 1987 the Tour of Mull continued to be successful.. From being initially a one night event, we introduced forest stages and ran a Saturday afternoon section in daylight.. In 1980 it was decided to start the event on Friday night and together with the Saturday afternoon  ...   sums of money to pay the bills for an Act of Parliament.. What you don’t need is organised opposition which, at a conservative estimate, could treble or quadruple the cost.. Had there been such opposition in our case we would have abandoned the project sooner rather than later.. We were incredibly lucky to have various factors on our side.. Strathclyde Regional Council undertook to promote the Act of Parliament.. The Royal Scottish Automobile Club agreed to co-ordinate the process.. Strathclyde Police were, as always, supportive.. Mull, through the Community Council, was decidedly in favour.. The financial guarantees were readily available and there was no opposition at all.. So you might imagine that it would be all plain sailing.. Not so.. We had to run the gauntlet of lawyers requiring clauses which demanded exorbitant insurance premiums, misunderstandings between seemingly intelligent and definitely highly paid people and maverick M.. P.. s out to make a political point totally unconnected with OUR Act of Parliament.. In the end, but a year behind schedule, the Strathclyde Confirmation Act 1990 reached the Statute Book on March 27th 1990.. It would be hard to describe the relief and the satisfaction that was felt by so many people at that time.. In the 2300 Club we described it as a triumph of persistence.. The first closed road rally on the U.. K.. mainland was held on the Island of Mull in October 1990.. Again the organisers were very apprehensive about their first venture, but all went well.. Subsequently the afternoon forest stages were dropped and replaced by daylight stages which proved extremely popular with competitors and spectators alike.. The event has over 170 miles of closed road competition, more, in fact, than many International Rallies and has now been sanctioned to run up to 150 competitors.. The Club has not actively sought championship status, opting instead to run the event purely for the loyal clubman rallyist.. However, 1996 saw the event back in the Motoring News fold after a break of 9 years when the Philips Tour of Mull was the last qualifying event for the EARS Motoring News Championship.. This was the fifth occasion that Philips sponsored the Rally, a happy and appropriate connection that began with the founding of the Club over 40 years ago.. In 2006, the 2300 Club were proud to have a new sponsor, in the form of Tunnock’s.. This family owned Scottish company, headed by the founder’s grandson, Boyd Tunnock, has a long history of producing high quality food products and is world renowned for it’s caramel wafers teacakes.. Tunnock’s were a natural fit for the rally and we enjoyed their sponsorship from 2006 onwards.. In 2009, the 2300 Club ran the 40th Tour of Mull.. We had a full entry list of 150 cars and once again ran a successful rally.. However, the event was marred by a few incidents and accidents and during the latter part of 2009 and early 2010 enthusiasm to re-enage in organising the event for 2010 was greatly diminished.. After much consulatation with Islanders the authorities, it was decided that the 2300 Club would not run a car rally on Mull in 2010 and instead, the local “Mull Car Club” hosted a successful event on the island in October 2010, again with the support of Tunnocks as the principle sponsors..
