Rochdale Classic Car Show

We had six cars on display at Rochdale Classic Car Show and plenty of interest from the visitors.  Our new banners were on display with cars from Ted (Stag), Deryck (TR6), Terry & Robert (Subaru), Steve & Paul (Mini & Micra) and Tim & Steve (MG ZR)  Photos are in the Gallery and in the banner above.  Many thanks to Ted and Paul for the organisation.

Treasure Hunt & Social Championship

The second Treasure Hunt organised by Paul Stringer took cars on a tour of Saddleworth.  Torrential rain failed to deter the six hardy crews from seeking out pink flowers and polo mints.  A late detour into Milnrow village to purchase holes in mints saw Steve Tweedale & Deryck Pickup emerge victorious.  NEXT EVENT FRIDAY 3rd AUGUST

Treasure Hunt & Social Championship

The first Treasure Hunt of the summer took the eight cars entered from the Cricket Club start to Ramsbottom via Owd Betts then Summerseat and Walshaw before returning to Milnrow via Pilsworth and Birch.  The closure of the M62 slip road at Heywood caught out most crews and led to the cancellation of mileage penalties.  Robert and Phillip Mills took the win on the tie breaker questions from Andrew and Ann Lord, both crews having 39 correct answers.  NEXT EVENT FRIDAY 13th JULY

John Clegg Mini Miglia Tour 2018

The Beast From The East 2 didn't deter the hardy entrants and couldn't hold back the Knowldale team from staging another excellent Mini Miglia Tour

 From the crews:

" .. we had a great time, and despite he M6 being down to one lane over Shap we got home OK ..."

"  ... the blizzard like conditions with periods of bright sunshine made it ... brought back happy memories of that wonderful 400 mile event the Yorkshire Rally."

" ... Congratulations on an epic do ... we enjoyed it enormously and look forward to repeating the expeience next year."

" .. Great event .. thanks to all those who made it happen including the marshals who must have been freezing."

" ... spot on yet again."

" ... chickened out at the lunch halt and put the hood up."

" ... excellent organisation and running of the event."

" ... brilliant route and great scenery"
