I am sad to share the news that Anthony Smallhorn, a stalwart of the Lancia Motor Club in the 60's , 70's and 80's died last week

His father was a founding member of the LMC and Anthony formed the original Aurelia Consortium. He was well known for rallying an Aprilia in classic events and was a co-organiser of the 1981 centenary event in Italy amongst other things

He was a great character, larger than life and always enthusiastic. I will remember him fondly and I have written a fuller obituary which should be in the next VL

I have happy memories of Anthony and his wife Mary and his home in Stotfold. In the early days he had all the Aurelia Consortium parts in his garage.
In February 1981 I went with Anthony, Nigel Trow and Harry Manning in Anthony's big Peugeot to Turin when he and Nigel were organising the Centenary Rally. Whilst there we stayed at Hotel Crimea (of course) and went to Cavalitto (of course)and it was there I saw the Historico Passport for Enrico Cavalitto's B10. I had never seen a B10 before and liked the look of it and so we drove out to Enrico's house and looked it over. Harry thought it was "OK" so I bought it. Nigel used it on the rally and drove it back for me. Good days.

All of Anthony's old chums are welcome
