2022 Annual Rally

The club’s 2022 Annual Rally will take place this year on Sunday July 10th at The National Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The rally will be part of the annual BMC/BL rally held at the site, and this year our club will be the featured club.

As advertised in ‘County Counsel’ issue 279, the Saturday evening meal will be held at the Charlecote Pheasant Hotel (tel: 01789 335960), and organisers of the rally, Chris and Joy Cole, have negotiated a discount for members. In order to take advantage of this discount however, you must book by Friday 15th April.

The club’s preferred supplier of new spares, Longbridge Motor Spares will also be at the event. Please note you do not need to bring a ‘Counties’ car to attend.

Sales & Wanted Page

As visitors to the site will know, we have a ‘Sales and Wanted’ page, where parts can be advertised for sale, or the need for a part advertised.

Unfortunately, it’s in the nature of such pages that they sometimes attract people who are dishonest, and we’ve recently seen an example of this, whereby someone has claimed to have parts to sell and then wanted payment in bitcoin, and the same person has responded to another advert claiming to have parts for another car and demanding money up front.

Please be aware of this person trying to con you – the vast majority of our adverts are fully bona fide – but please check fully to your own satisfaction before considering parting with any cash.
