70th ANNIVERSARY Dinner

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.

Walking Rally

When: Wednesday 20th July.
Where: Grimston, Pott Row and Roydon.
Start: Hudson’s Fen Play Area PE32 1BP Map 132 701 227
Organiser: Paul & Janet Smalley.
Tel. 07831 811 865
Eml. paul.smalley@kier.co.uk

To introduce a more social family event to our calendar that Wives, Partners and Children may want to take part in Paul & Janet Smalley have organised a short walking rally around the villages of Grimston, Pott Row and Roydon. This will take place on Wednesday 20th July with teams consisting of two adults and up to 2 children leaving the start at one minute intervals. Hopefully it is early enough for some older children to take part as it will start at 6.45pm.

It starts and finishes at Hudson’s Fen Play Area PE32 1BP Map 132 701227 where there is ample free parking. The trail is approx. 1.5 miles long and should take around one hour. To keep you busy there will be 60 questions to answer.

The route uses surfaced footpaths where possible but there are sections on quiet roads where there are no footpaths. It uses a stile to access an unsurfaced footpath and a loose surfaced “trod”. It also crosses roads that may be busy so please take care.

To make it slightly competitive and similar to a clubnight rally it will be timed to the minute and there will be a fail for each incorrect or missed answer. There will be a prize for the winning team.

Once everyone returns to Hudson’s Fen the intention is to then go to the three Horseshoes Pub in Roydon PE32 1AQ Map 132 706228 for a drink and the results – hopefully it will be a nice evening as they have plenty of tables outside.

Entry fee will be £2 per team and any profit will be donated to Hudson’s Fen Play area.

For further info or to register your entry please contact Paul Smalley either by email to paul.smalley@kier.co.uk or Tel 07831 811865.

Very late entries will be accepted so please don’t just turn up on the night as there may not be spare paperwork available.

Karting Evening

Back by popular demand (we hope) is another evening of karting at Anglia Karting, North Pickenham. It’s booked for the 18th May @ 7.00pm. It will follow the usual hours endurance format in 270cc karts consisting of teams of two. The cost is £40 per person and we need a minimum of 12 people so get your name down. If previous years are anything to go by it will be a competitive night.

To book your entry please contact: Richard Felton
