Solent Rally

3rd September 1982 - Solent MCC

It was a lot easier to find the rally in the woods this year, as I was here last year, but I was not yet as familiar with the route as I would be in the years to come.

It being the 13th rally, nothing untoward happened, despite what the superstitious amongst us might have worried. The weather was glorious all weekend and, as far as I can tell, everybody had fun.

Lez Lumps was there, trying to sell copies of his Big Bollards rally magazines and so he, as he always does, tried organising sing-songs around the fire at night. Always assuming fires were allowed in the woodland - sometimes memory plays tricks.
