The Classic Zed Register to celebrate 40 years of the Z and their 21st birthday have arranged a drive from Lands End to John O'Groats. The LEJOG Rally is not taking the most direct route and will not be a race across the country. Instead the plan is to drive some of the best roads across the UK, have some leisurely drives, long lunches and relaxing evenings!



The LEJOG Rally will start on Sunday 20 September at Lands End. The day before on Saturday 19th September there will be a dinner arranged nearby for those interested. The Rally will end at John O'Groats on Saturday 26th September.

Anyone wishing to participate can do so for the entire Rally or can, if they wish, just join for part of the trip. You can do a whole day or just a half day joining us for breakfast/lunch/dinner before/after.

The full itinerary will only be published to those who have registered and hotel details will be given to those participating only. However we can you what each half day will hold so please feel free to add your name under the relevant section in the list at the bottom of this post.

The LEJOG Rally is to celebrate the Classic Z Register and the 40th anniversary of the Z. Attendance is by invitation only and they have kindly invited only the GTROC to attend as guests!

NMGB will be donating a car for the purposes of the rally to be driven the entire route. As well as attracting some interest to the car it should make an interesting review to find out what it's like to spend a week with the new car on the road doing mile after mile every day. If anyone wants to come along for a test ride please pick the bit of the route you want to do and add your name.

Every day we will be stopping for a long lunch at a pub. So rather than take a whole day out of work just book half a day and join us for part of a leg. As each stop there will be a lot of other enthusiasts and also local Nissan dealers as well as other enthusiasts.

Let's see if we can get a few Skylines and GTRs to join!

Each day will have a long lunch break planned at half distance, so if you only want to do part of the day add your name and put "first half" or "second half" with your name

Each day starts at around 9am at the hotel and ends mid afternoon - we're not rushing :chuckle: Inbetween is a long lunch break at a pub :thumbsup:

Once you're confirmed I can PM you the details as we'd rather not broadcast the details on here or the other forum that is promoting this event

Just to say..... I will have a spare seat so anyone wanting a passenger ride part of the way in an R35 just add your name next to mine against the relevent section!

I'm working on this. I'll be in Cornwall up until just before the starting weekend but am trying to extend so I can attend the pre-meet and 1st day of travelling where I will then head back home further north from there :)
