Layer Marney Cup Fuel Trial

8 August 2021 |3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

If you want to come in and watch all sorts of cars, from as early as the 1920’s being weighed as the final stage of the Layer Marney Cup, then plan your visit to finish in the afternoon. The Tower, gardens, church and Essex Barn will be open as usual and this will be an added extra to your visit!

The Layer Marney Cup was originally run from Southend to Layer Marney Tower as a fuel trial. Revived 101 years later, the one-day trial sees the cars drive around the county on a prepared route and return to Layer Marney Tower to be weighed and the results calculated. If you want to put a car into the trial itself, it must be petrol and roadworthy. Applications through sheila@layermarneytower.co.uk. If you want to be part of the arrivals crowd just buy your entrance ticket as normal.
