The event will start and finish at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, and as 2018 is the centenary of the formation of the RAF, formed 1st April 1918, this year’s event will have a Royal Air Force theme. Duxford, an airfield dating back to those early days as a training depot for new pilots and subsequently becoming a base for both Spitfire and Hurricane squadrons during the Second World War, is obviously a great place to start and the route will take in some of the many locations which served as RAF airfields during WW2 together with other places of interest along the way.
The tour will follow a route of approximately 80 miles, mostly on quiet country roads, passing through or near some of the WW2 sites and with at least one mid-way halt before returning to Duxford in plenty of time for a meander around the Museum, entry for which is included in the tour entry fee for both driver and passenger.
The route will be defined by Tulip diagrams contained in the road book which will be issued at signing on. For those wishing to have the back-up maps the event will be confined to OS Landranger maps 153, 154 and 167 and a map showing the route will be available at the start venue for viewing..
