published and for sale, “Owen
Motoring Club Rally History. A culmination of six years research to dig out the
history of many of the rallies organised by Owen Motoring Club. Due to some
known events having no history available, this publication is not a results
bible. Events covered from 1960 through to the years at Weston Park. The focus
being on the club’s road rallies including all ten Motoring News events. Seventy
five pages of history plus many pictures in black and white and in colour, some
of which are believed to be never published before. Written as a tribute by
Anton Bird, a club member since 1975, for Owen Motoring Club`s 60th anniversary
year. The club formerly known as “The Owen Organisation Motoring Club”, OOMC, was
formed in December 1959 by “Rubery Owen & Co.” employees.

The roadbook has now been finalised (thanks Melvyn) and should not be missed. No use wishing you had done it afterwards. The 105 mile route will be split into four halves. Starting from Shrewsbury we traverse the Long Mynd to the morning tea halt at the Glider Station then it is back via the Stiperstones for petrol in Church Stretton followed by lunch at Acton Scott Working Farm.
From here we go via Delbury Hall (recently added), to the afternoon tea halt at Knowbury, near to Titterstone Clee Hill, then back to the Food Centre at Ludlow for sit down meal.
The route has two characteristics. The first half traverses roads previously used on MN and Goggin rallies with some twisty stuff but stunning scenery. The second half is very relaxing, again with great scenery. Just one small ford!
Do not miss this run. It will not be repeated again in such a beautiful part of the country. Put your entry in now.
