Rally Card Plate

Contributed by BBC Bristol

Depicting the first rally from abroad to the UK (now there are lots)featuring Bordeaux to Bristol. Each Mayor was at the start and finish. It was timed through unknown points to the second. The car was in the paper as I mentioned at the opening in Bordeaux. I was the third owner and still own the car it is an 1953 Sunbeam Talbot 90 Metallic blue. It was Turner Edwards 150 anniversary - hence the sponsorship.
