Vintage cars have their night rally when the VSCC puts on the Measham rally, a fixture of long standing and a nocturnal navigational exercise not to be taken lightly. It took place again on January 11/12, this time moving to Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. Once again those VSCC weather controllers contrived to end a week of desperate winter conditions with a thaw, so that only one section of the route was snow-covered. WB
