Anyone else on here doing this event, or maybe going to watch. It is on 19th/20th/21st October.

Loads of interesting rally cars and drivers/navigators will be doing it. Quite a few old Minis too - mine included.

A weekend of fun I reckon.

Good fun, wasn't it. Good to see so many Minis out as well. Porlock was fun I thought and I must admit I did have a 'bit of a go' up there.

 

I did it with my good friend Bill Rogers who flew from Arizona to do it. He drove in the morning and I drove in the afternoon. We started rallying together in 1959 and he got a Mini for his 21st birthday in 1961. We did very well in that one which was actually the first red Mini to rally with a white roof.

 

I remember your car when it was owned by my old friend Barrie Malkin. I did a couple of rallies with him, but not in 3000KV.

 

Then Richard Hudson-Evans had 3000KV and I recall overtaking it in Walews on an MN event (Cilwendeg in 1969 I think) when I was navigating Jock Russell in his Porsche 911. My son later won the Historic Championship with Richard H-E in his red Porsche in 1997.

 

Good to see your well-known car is still going so well.

 

Lots of photos on Facebook.
