Classic Touring

TDMC Classic Tour

In 1922 Donald and his brother Geoffrey Healey, ran the first TDMC event by closing off a section of road between Truro and Perranporth to run a sprint. The Police turning a blind eye to the closed road. They were also the first ones to use what is now the tarmac road at Blue Hills for a trial.

To celebrate the Club’s centenary, we are running the Centenary Classic Tour, an event for classic cars starting and finishing at Healey’s Cyder Farm. The road run will be approximately 80-90 miles with lunch at Trebah the home of Donald Healey.

points system

Competitors are awarded 10 points on completion of at least one timed run at the event. Further points are allocated as per the scoring schedule below, (The scoring system is quite simple and there is a handicap system in place which brings into account the numbers in each class.) determined by competitors placing within their class as recorded in the Official Final Results.
