75th RAC Rally - looking for Lanch. 15/18

Post by ranald » Thu Jun 27, 2019 7:44 pm

The Club has been approached by the organisers of the RAC Rally. They are celebrating 75th running of the international event and are planning to mark that milestone with a special display of significant rally cars at the Oulton Park opening stage on the Thursday afternoon/evening 3 October. Oulton Park is in Cheshire: CW6 9BW

The very first RAC Rally back in 1932 was won by Colonel A H Loughborough in a Lanchester 15/18.

They are hoping someone might be able to attend Oulton Park with a Lanchester 15/18.

The car would be on display from c2:30pm until c7pm. They will offer tickets to the opening stage of the 2019 Wales Rally GB as well as refreshments/hospitality on site. Also, of course, a chance to see the latest generation of world rally cars and drivers in action if that excites!

Incidentally, does anyone know where I can find a photograph of Colonel A H Loughborough's car, reg. GW 3081 (chassis 10023).

Let me know if you are interested and I will put you in touch with the organisers.
