“It was at a private dinner that I first met James Noble, the Motofest Event Director and where the idea was developed of bringing back a tour with multiple starting points but one central finish. I am delighted to be planning the Road to Coventry; this year there will be two start locations with the aim of increasing the number next year. I know that everyone who enters will have a great day.” – Peter Nedin
The route for the Road to Coventry has been planned by Peter Nedin, a name well known to the world of classic and historic road events. Peter has been involved in motorsport for over 45 years and for many years has been active in the organisation of competitive and non-competitive classic and historic road events throughout Europe, including the Scottish Malts Reliability Trial and Tour, The Icelandic Saga and the London – Lisbon Reliability Trial and Tour. For ten years, culminating in the 20th anniversary edition in 2014, Peter was Clerk of the Course of probably the most well-known historic road event in Europe, the Land’s End to John O’Groats Classic Reliability Trial and Tour, better known to enthusiasts as “Le Jog”. Peter has devised and originated a number of events and gets a lot of pleasure from route planning; seeking out lesser known minor roads and those which provide all the attributes sought by classic car drivers who want to drive their cars for pleasure. He was delighted to be asked to plan the inaugural Road to Coventry.
