Pretty clear there'll be hardly any prewar cars at the LMC event, then. I was going to come in the Lambda this year, but not on those dates.

Same here! VSCC Prescott is the best vintage car meeting in the world, so I never miss it.

Life's full of choices....

I welcome the effort put in by the few to give the Lancia Motor Club its annual weekend gathering and it is in my diary.

The committee have noted this no go part of the calendar for future AGM weekends.

Although VSCC members will want to go to Prescott if we only go on Sunday we could go to the LMC on Friday or Saturday for the Dinner and drive to Prescott on Sunday morning about a 1 hour drive even if this means missing the AGM & concours.

Heretical, but maybe do the concours on Saturday??

Tim, Don't start that again, caused enough problems last time >:( it was changed and we've only had it back on a Sunday for a couple of years.
As others said, if events clash then you have to decide your own priorities.
Same argument applies, many people don't have Saturday's free. Ok if you are attending the weekends as it doesn't make any difference to you
For me The AGM takes priority over all other events.

Hi all. Not sure about what has happened before...  :o ??? :-[

Some questions if I may...

Can you just turn up for the Sunday with the AGM and concourse? i.e. No dinner, drive and so forth before hand...

My motor isn't road legal, is there space etc for me to park, load and unload from a trailer? I saw pictures from last year which sugested it was on a big field which would be fine if it is the same for this year.

Richard

Daytrippers are always welcome on Sunday and I am not sure but the hotel has a lot of parking so unloading a trailer is not going to be a problem. When the application comes out there should be options for attendance.

Hope that helps.

That's what I thought I would do.

Hi all,

is there a hotel booking details etc for the National Rally?
I couldn't find anything but could be my incompetence...


Many thanks, Mihran'.

Yes, details and booking form will be published in the next Viva Lancia!

Apologies for the clash with Prescott, but threading the needle between car club & motorsport events and finding hotels with availability (in peak wedding season) is tremendously difficult.

Over Easter I popped into the Midland Air Museum (its on the AGM weekend agenda, hence posting here) to kill a bit of time ahead of a Landrover production line tour - and we ran out of time... I'll absolutely be back again.  The "headlines" there are access to the Vulcan cockpit and a Frank Whittle exhibition, but of most interest to me was their Argosy.

For air museum fans I think of Cosford "as just up the road from there" but its 50 miles and an hour...just happens to be very close to my sister (or more importantly nephew).

Landrover:

https://www.landrover.com/experiences/manufacturing-tours/index.html

We went a few years back to see the last of the Defenders - big hammers and quarter inch tolerances.  This time it was the "Velar" (new to me) which shares its line with the Jaguar F-Pace (and much else...) in Solihull.  They had tooling in place for a third car down the same line, "don't tell anyone but" its the electric I-Pace.  Aluminium, glue, rivets, lots of photos of glue lines etc (for ambulance chasers to look at as much as quality control) and working to microns.  I expect we'll go back for the engine plant in Wolverhampton, and I'd like to see their "classics" set up which is a production line restoration facility as well as the 500 car private collection.

Their Voodoo is an impressive thing as well.  Not a plane I'd heard of, but a big scary thing with its engines sticking out the back like a hotrod.  Built as a bomber escort it was also an interceptor designed to throw a nuclear missile into the middle of an enemy formation and a "one way single trip bomber".  They had the range to break a lot of records and took the first photos of Cuban missiles.  Not without its issues they still built 800 of them before the Phantom took over in 1960.  Two Phantoms at the museum, they built over 5000 of them, some are STILL in service.

PS - Not sure if I was more impressed or grumpy that it took the Peter Twiss / Fairy Delta II speed record...

David, if you're interested in early jet aircraft I can't recommend a book I read recently highly enough. It's called 'Empire of the Clouds' by James Hamilton-Patterson,  ISBN 978-0-571-24795-0. It tells of Britain's post war aircraft industry and leaves you speechless with the danger, the lack of knowledge about jet behaviour and the age old story of muddled British management and letting others benefit from our ideas. It's certainly not a dull dry read.

That looks like 1.83 well spent then :)   

Amazon - love them and loathe them - but they are a brilliant platform for independent second hand book sellers.

When you've finished it you should watch the old film 'The Sound Barrier'. That's what happened to me - by pure coincidence as I finished the book the film came on tv. You realise how realistic the film is.

Do we an idea when we will receive official confirmation that our booking/monies have been received?
Also, I'm looking at extending my booking from Saturday/Sunday to Friday/Saturday/Sunday but I'm getting a failed email delivery to Mark Hall !

Is there an issue?

Cheers
Vince

If anyone wants to come along on Sunday but haven't been in touch with us yet, I've attached the timetable.  It would still help us enormously if you could let us know if you want to come along - please drop us a line on nationalrally@lanciamc.co.uk
