Our 41st Annual Classic Car Rally ran on Sunday 8 July 2018. We had a great day with some superb weather.

We are pleased to announce that this year’s rally was able to raise £500 in aid of the Norfolk Accident Rescue Service. We are very grateful that the event was sponsored again by Anglia Car Auctions of King’s Lynn, now one of the leading classic car auctions in the UK. We are also grateful for additional support from Hylton Gott and Witham Oils.

The event started from our sponsor’s premises on Beveridge Way, King’s Lynn with the first cars being flagged away by the Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Councillor Nick Daubney, a long-standing KLDMC member who took part in the Rally. Our lunch halt was at the fabulous Hockwold Hall, near Feltwell. The event finished at the magnificent Kentwell Hall at Long Melford, Suffolk where awards were presented.

We had 82 entries for this year’s event. Thank you for your support.

Our winners were:

Car of the Day: David Sutton (1931 Bentley Special)

Class winners:
Vintage/PVT: Foster Jones (1928 Humber 14/40)
Historic Classic: Paul Lovett (1963 Austin Healey 3000)
Post-Historic Classic: Geoff Glover (1975 Ford Escort Mexico)
Modern Classic: Stephen Cook (1995 Porsche 911)

Most Appropriately Attired Crew: Mr & Mrs Rick Fryer (1929 Austin Seven)

All entrants were entered into a Free Draw to win £50 of Classic Car Oils kindly donated by Witham Oils. The winner was Brian Goderson of King’s Lynn (1971 Lotus Elan Sprint).
