Classic Car Rally 2021

Our 43rd Annual Classic Car Rally, run by KLDMC in aid of NARS, ran on Sunday 4th July 2021, with over 80 entrants of classics spanning 75 years of motoring from 1930 to 2005….

Update:  A report on the Classic Car Rally follows but on 31st August 2021, the Club was delighted to be able to make a presentation of £1000 to Paul Strutt of NARS, representing the sum raised from the 2021 event. 

Cheque presentation
Chairman Ed Haylock hands over a cheque for £1000 to NARS’ Paul Strutt, alongside KLDMC members, representatives from our generous sponsors and, of course, a trio of classic cars

 

Event report: 4 July 2021

Car 1 takes to the road: Club President Colin Shinkins flags away Terry Cook’s 1930 Austin, driven by Terry’s daughter Lisa Elliott, from the start at Downham Home & Garden.

 

Car of the Day winner

Car of the Day, voted for by all entrants, was won by Harvey Death’s 1934 Bentley Blower

Thanks to everyone who supported the day. The weather did its best to spoil things but well done to everyone for sticking with it and the sun came out again, eventually!

The event was kindly sponsored by Anglia Car Auctions of King’s Lynn with additional support from Ottoway Carpentry of Dersingham, Bennetts Estate Agents of King’s Lynn, Bearts of Stowbridge, Steve Cato Classic Cars & Restoration from Tottenhill and Downham Home & Garden.

The event was again run in aid of the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service (NARS). The amount raised will be announced on these pages in due course.
