For the sake of those future historians to whom Motor Sport must remain an impeccable source of reference, may I make two small corrections to your otherwise admirable report on the VSCC Measham Trophy Rally?
The last time that the Rally finished at the Measham sales ground was in 1956, which I believe was before the formation of the Motor Museum. Thereafter it became more convenient both for the Measham Sales Organisation and the rally organisers for the event to finish elsewhere. At the same time, the title of the event was changed from the Measham Rally to the Measham Trophy Rally, to perpetuate the association between the Rally and the then head of the Measham Organisation, Mr. Hill, who originally donated the Measham Trophy.
Secondly, the Long Mynd hotel is in fact in Church Stretton, in which town all events since 1959 have finished, either at the Long Mynd or Sandford hotels.
