As a trial we have had a couple of copies of the Driver magazine, or perhaps newsletter would be a better description, from the 1970's scanned.  They make for interesting reading!

No I haven't got the dates the wrong way round!  If someone can tell me why the 1974 edition looks better than the 1977 version I would be interested to find out!  (answers to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Club members are competing in, Historic Road Rallies, Historic Stage Rallies, Classic Runs, Sprints, Hillclimbs and many other forms of the sport.

GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.

North of Scotland

There is no formal Branch currently in operation (largely as a result of the sheer geographical spread of members across this area) and therefore no regular meetings.
Where possible, there is usually an  SOC 'presence' at gatherings across the region organised by other clubs, motor museums or advertised on web forums (principally UKSaabs).

The dates known so far for 2017 at which we aim to be represented are:

  • 23rd Apr    FBHVC 'Drive It Day' 2017  - various local runs (I'll be attending the one organised by the Highland Classic Motor Club, Inverness)
  • 7th May     Forres Theme Day
  • 21st May   Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire - "How Many Left" event for 'nearly classic' vehicles with fewer than 500 examples on the road
  • 27th May   Rotary Club of East Sutherland Classic Car Tour, Dornoch
  • 28th May   Vintage Day, Highland Folk Museum, Newtonmore
  • 8th/9th Jul  43rd Scottish Transport Extravaganza, Glamis Castle, Angus
