‘Multum in Parvo’

Put the dates of 23rd to 25th June 2017 in your diary now as the Network’s 8th annual rally is scheduled to take place over the course of that weekend, set in a beautiful corner of rural Leicestershire, just a stones-throw distant from Rutland, England’s smallest county.

Our rally will have at least four venues in 2017, the most unusual being the Rutland Belle boat where on Sunday afternoon rallyists can opt to board the craft and view England’s largest man-made reservoir during the course of an hour long cruise. Rally HQ will be based at the Nevill Arms in Medbourne, Leicestershire venue for the rally dinner on Saturday evening while the Inn’s car park will be the gathering point for both our tours.  The rally itinerary has now been updated following an enforced change and can be viewed on the webpage here.

1934 WASA Trial

This photograph was taken on a cold March day in 1934 above a sunken lane in the Chiltern Hills, Buckinghamshire. The occasion was that year’s running of the WASA Trial, an all women affair. The queuing London registered 1933 Minor Two-seater is JJ 9444 which is located immediately ahead of the Morgan Super Sport, all the cars in view awaiting their turn to start the next observed section. The archive contains another shot of JJ 9444 being pushed up a steep gradient at this same event, although it’s very apparent that the person in the driving seat is a male.

Wolseley Hornet specials no. 17

By | Hornet Specials, Triple M corner

GP 8217 was registered in London during 1931 therefore one of the early Swallow built Hornet Two-seater specials. The car is seen here taking part in the 1932 MCC London-Lands End Trial with C. F. Harris at the wheel. This image was shot at an unknown location on 26th March 1932 by a photographer using celluloid film in his camera, the resulting negatives producing far less detail than that seen on glass plates. C.F. Harris failed to collect an award and retired from the event. (An LAT Motor Sport image)
