The RAC Norwich Union Classic Car Rally, which was so successful in 1986, is to happen again this year on May 24, and it should be noted that entries (at £35 each) close on March 31. Apply to RAC Motor Sports Association, 31 Belgrave Square, London SW1X 8QH. This non-competitive event is open to cars from 1905 to 1967, of which 600 can be accommodated. Starting points are Bath, Beaulieu, Brands Hatch, Buxton and Norwich, and there will be optional driving-tests at Silverstone.

To commemorate the centenary of the Sunbeam bicycle, the Southern Veteran Cycle Club intends to hold a weekend for owners on May 8-10, gathering in Worcester, riding on Saturday to Ludlow via the Elgar Birthplace Museum at Broadheath (Elgar being a notable Sunbeam cyclist), and ending on Sunday with a run to Sunbeamland, the former cycle factory near Wolverhampton. No doubt discreet support from suitable Sunbeam cars and Villiers-powered motorcycles would not be amiss, but if you ride a Sunbeam bicycle details are available from B C Champ, 60 Birmingham Road, Walsall, West Midlands WS1 2NH.

Holker Hall, Grange-over-Sands, will be the scene of an Easter enter-on-the-day car event; a model aeroplane and car meet on July 12; and the Provincial Insurance Historic Vehicle Rally on September 6.

The enthusiastic Riley RM Club announced a membership increase of 19 in its current issue of R M Memoranda. It has its National Rally at Littlecote, Berkshire, on August 8-9.

Entry forms for the Esso Bristol-to-Weymouth Vintage Vehicle Run on June 14 are now available from K McGee, 38 Kenmore Drive, Yeovil, Somerset BS21 4BQ. Yeovil CC invites entries of veteran to 1939 cars, motorcycles and light commercial vehicles and over 300 are expected. Period costume is permitted at this event, which will take in 75 miles of fine scenery, from Ashton Court, across Clifton suspension-bridge, into Bristol city centre, then along the A37 to Wells and Yeovil. The event will finish in Dorchester. WB
