August Bank Holiday Pre78 Rally - Dave Potter


The day dawned very overcast with a promise of sun later. With some trepidation, I fired up the Morris Minor and headed toward the site followed by Bev with all the trappings for the day. Once again, the standard of vehicles was high and gave the judges difficulty in choosing the winners of the trophies. There were many different vehicles this year as owners had completed new restorations and were anxious to show off their efforts. It was felt that as this year was QRS 40th year that we would dress appropriately so Bev and I were hippies and Adrian was a Teddy Boy. David Rogers presented the Ted Rogers Trophy to the winner.

Trophies were presented at 4 pm to:

1st B Moseley 1937 AC 16/70 (QRS Trophy)
