The Tyne Tees Centre came into being in 1963 as a sub centre of the North East Centre which was based in Leeds. It soon became an active sporting centre with autotests, sprints, and twelve car rallies being the main staple events. More information can be found in the link.
Our day started off fine, and bright but a bit chilly as we set off in Numbum to help with the signing on. With 90 cars attending we were kept pretty busy between 9 and 11 o clock which is when we started to convoy down to the showfield. Just after we arrived on the showfield, the rain, which wasn't forecast until fourish, arrived early and put a bit of a dampener on things. Thankfully it cleared before the photo op in the museum street and it stayed dry for our drive home.
Once the last tram had run we were allowed into the main street for photographs. This was a rare occasion and one not to be missed. Many thought the same way.
