The Section Rally on the 6th June was run through beautiful country once again on what must have been the hottest day of the year.
The Concours, based on the state of the car and its driver/passenger, gave Brenda Rowley’s Talbot a win in the Edwardian class, and Edward Riddle’s GN came first in the Vintage section.
In the Rally proper the route was indicated by a couple of religious pigeons, under whose flightpath it would obviously be dangerous to pass as they commuted between church towers, and later by a dissected herring, but competitors found their way through these dangers and Simon Coates won the Lady Rachel Trophy with his Austin 7.
The AGM showed the Section to be comfortably solvent, and much joy was expressed at the success of members driving Light and Edwardian cars in the recent FIVA Rally, several winning awards.
At the end of this month MG Car Club members will be making for their Trennial International Rally in the Black Forest of Germany via linked meetings starting with the combined Dutch clubs’ Zandvoort event. The Luxembourg, Frankfurt and Swiss centres will also be playing hosts en-route.
The Dellow Register reminds us of its existence and that it would be pleased to hear from Dellow owners who are not already members. The Club’s Chairman and General Secretary is: John Temple, Douglas Temple Studios Ltd., 104B, Old Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, Dorset.
