KLDMC celebrated our 70th Anniversary on Saturday 25th February 2023.
We were privileged to have been invited and hosted by the Mayor of Kings Lynn, the very charitable Councillor Lesley Bambridge, to hold the event at the prestigious Kings Lynn Town Hall, a venue that has an incredibly diverse history of use ranging from Public House, Police HQ, Court and Gaol!
Club President Paul Haylock thanked everyone involved for making the evening possible and hoped to see the Club continue to flourish as it enters its eight decade. It will continue to be involved with a wide variety of activities from club nights; navigational, targa and stage rallies; autotests/gymkhanas and an increasing number of classsic car events.
Joining us as guest speaker was Phil Mills, 2003 WRC World Champion with Petter Solberg, and present owner of world class rally car preparation and build business, Viking Motorsport. Phil braved questions on the night from 100 or so members and guests who attended, recalling a career which saw him compete in international rallies over 17 seasons, multiple seasons of national championship stage and road events and a total of 155 road rallies.
Exceptional food was provided by the award winning Shefs and it was great to be able to chat and reminisce with firends old and new on the past 70 years of Kings Lynn and District Motor Club’s rich history.
Thank you to everyone who attened for your support and special thanks to all who were involved in the organising team under the leadership of Paul, Ed & Helen Haylock, Steve Tilburn and Duncan Russell.
