The Citroen Car Club

The Citroen Car Club continues to be a very well-run organisation, with a professional-looking monthly magazine, t he Citroenian, which is devoted to Citroens of all kinds, with a “Light-15 Corner”, “Two & Three Horse Topics”, news of the D-Series Register and niche Club’s regional sections, etc. The Club holds many social and rally-type meetings.

Land’s End. and Edinburgh classic trials). The club is run on exemplary frugal lines, and a sudden increase in Triple awards would have needed some increase from the present (6 subscription to fund the silverware. Litton Slack and Great Hucklow between them served tic keep the MCC’s funds in the blacken the Edinburgh. however, which had a full entry of 250 plus 14 reserves, and enjoyed much damper weather than the two earlier events. The lucky six Triple winners for 1981 were Andrews, Wall, Unman, and Jackson — all in Cortina engined Dellows (a combination which has proved effective but which saddens the 1172 purists), Maynard with a 1 1/2-litre VW beetle, and VSCC exponent Barry Clarke with a 1927 Austin Seven Chummy. There is no record of a vintage car having won a Triple since the Hitler war, and for one of such humble origins to do so is a particularlv good effort.
