INTERNATIONAL DAIMLER AND LANCHESTER RALLY COMES TO TOWN

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of the beautiful Daimler Dart and to celebrate this prestigious car's half century, local gentleman, Wilf Stephens organized a huge rally in Ross-on-Wye for the Daimler and Lanchester Owners Club. On Sunday morning, approximately 200 magnificent vehicles lined up on the banks of the river Wye at Long Acre Meadow. Countless enthusiasts from as far away as Australia attended the weekend event and many interested members of the public gathered to witness the spectacle.

A dinner was held on Saturday evening and it was there that Wilf spoke to us about the event, which took nine months to prepare. It was a pleasure to see Councillor Gordon Lucas and his wife Margaret at the dinner. Gordon had been asked to speak after the meal as he had a long standing relationship with BSA and an amusing speech by the son of one of the chief engineers at Daimler brought much laughter. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the whole event.

Congratulations Wilf on the great success of this event, which did much for local businesses - we heard that all of the hotels in town were used by the visitors!
