On Friday 15th April 2016 between 12 noon and (best guess) 3.45 p.m. the “Flying Scotsman” vintage car rally will be at Castle Howard and will then pass through Slingsby.
This three day rally, with over a hundred cars, starts at Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire and ends at the Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.
The cars will stop for lunch between 12 noon and (at latest) 2.30 p.m. in the car park at Castle Howard, where they can be admired.
They then come through Slingsby on their way to Osmotherly – we imagine along the top road/B1257, but we have no exact details. This is estimated to be from 1.45 p.m. to 3.45 p.m., although all times are approximate.
