Rally 2016

The vehicles gathered at the Star Inn in Roberttown, Liversedge from 9 a.m. for a display in the car park, although with so many cars present there was an overflow onto the road! While the drivers and their navigators were being treated to a superb Full English Breakfast in the pub, the vehicles were being judged. There are trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for the best prepared vehicles, and an additional trophy - The Syd Colman Trophy - awarded to the vehicle that catches the judge's eye, maybe for being a bit unusual or outstanding in some other way.

After breakfast, and feeling full, the drivers set off on a 70 mile run guided by their navigators who were following the carefully prepared instruction sheet they had been given. This year the run took the cars northwards, through Bradford and then out into the beautiful countryside passing through Summerbridge, past Brimham Rocks, on to Ripon and ending at Lightwater Valley.

A fantastic display of cars was put on in our own car park which attracted a lot of attention from members of the public. There was a cafe where participants could have lunch as well as some shops selling clothing, books and gifts to wander around and for the more adventerous discount tickets were kindly provided for the theme park. The participants then gathered in the conference room for prize-giving and the raffle draw. First prize was awarded to the magnificent 1935 Triumph Gloria Southern Cross and the Colman prize went to a beutiful 1957 Chevrolet Belair.

The weather was kind to us with overnight rain clearing and the sun comong out by mid-day, and with a run through beautiful scenery, an interesting venue and plenty of cars taking part, it was a very successful day and thanks must go to all who took part for making it so.
