The annual Sandhurst Rally comprised a Concours d’Elegance judged by the Assistant Commandant of the R.M.A., Brig. Graham, followed by driving tests organised by the Captain and Officer/Cadets of the R.M.A. Motor Sports Club. Thirty-two entrants, 18 in Sunbeams, 12 in Talbots and two in Darracqs, took six tests in the grounds, so spacious that radio communication was used to link the tester with the scoreboard. The Concours d’Elegance was won by C. F. Smith’s beautiful 1913 12/16 Sunbeam, the runners-up being T. J. Mockridge’s 1935 Talbot 105 and C. Parish’s 1937 Talbot 110. In the tests Mockridge was first, R C. A. Mackworth second in his 1933 Talbot 105 and A. M. H. Jones third in his 1927 twin-cam 3-litre Sunbeam.
On November 6th Register members will rally to the Sunbeam factory at Ryton-on-Dunsmore as guests of the Rootes Group.
