Our Sponsors

The Club has received very generous support from a good number of businesses and individuals in response to requests for sponsorship to help with staging the Crockey Hill event at York. See our Partners, Sponsors and Friends  page. In addition to monetary support, we have been loaned two 4WD tractors and a water tanker for replenishing the engines over the four days. One attendee has received free transport to and from the York event from a Cornwall based engineering company. Our thanks go to everyone who has helped to make the event a success by their kind support.
