Review RallyReview Rally was one of a series of rallies run in the early 80s by Lez Lumps (Lez Devine) who also published Rally Review Magazine.
The rallies were run at many different sites. I attended some in Wales, one near Dorchester & another at the Ostrich pub somewhere off the Lichfield-Ashbourne road. (This pub was also used for other rallies.)
The RR rallies often had patches instead of badges.
I spoke to Lez in March 2008. He still has a bike but not been riding due to a dodgy knee. He has just had a knee operation & hopes to be riding again soon.
I used to go to quite a few Rallies and was a friend of Lez.
I've still got my old rally jacket with the many badges from all the weekends away.
My first rally was at the Moonrakers' Ye Gert Bustard Rally. Brill weekend. In fact all the rallies I attended were brill.
I used to sell Rally Review for Lez when I went to different rallies to him.
I also remember Zeb, Vic, (who had a catering van) Armpit.
Just a couple of photos of a Rally Review Spring Romp. The location was Tutbury Castle.
As you see we had a medieval theme with a pig roast. I think the chap walking towards the ruin on the hill is Phil The Spill. The man with the striped top and red hat is Tiny Tim from the Moonrakers MCC.
The wobbly bike was a bugger to ride, both ends turned.
I'm the one with my arms wide apart (had hair then).
