Thanks again to Ade and Sarah for an excellent SPR this year. An excellent attendance - as always the SPR attracts a wonderful variety of great Lancias, and a good selection of interesting places to visit. And  - for what is a very popular part of England - some great roads with very little traffic! A very enjoyable weekend

Yes, it was a splendid rally, as usual. A good turn-out of Augustas on their 80th. anniversary, but a shame a few notable ones were missing. I was particularly sorry not to be able to admire Chugga's efforts.
Regards, John

Superb weekend in the Cotswolds, many thanks Ade et al. What a superb club LMC is made up of wonderful cars and equally splendid people. It was so good to meet up with old friends and to make new ones. Doug and Kathleen Crowther used to visit the farm where we are now living for Bentley and Ferrari gatherings and Ben Courage, I discovered ,went to the same junior school as I did. Small world eh!?

Modestine was only readied for the rally at 3pm on the Friday afternoon (see details in the Dilambda section) and ran perfectly until just before Sunday lunch when the ignition system packed up altogether. Many thanks to Reg Maybury (Rachel nee Wilcock's husband)who towed us to the lunch stop assisted by James Parry. I then took a huge amount of stick for converting the distributor to electronic ignition which precluded any hope of repair and resulted in our homeward journey being courtesy of AA Recovery. On the bright side we saved about 60 worth of petrol!

Returned the distributor to the guy who carried out the conversion to find that the module had indeed failed which he replace under warranty.  I am totally unrepentant for the doing the conversion having enjoyed perfect starting, smooth running and lovely tick over since. However, I will now be carrying a spare module, coil and a set of refurbished points!

Here's to next year in Belgium,
