The VSCC’s Andrew Tarring said “We were blessed with classic Measham weather; fog, ice and snow“ and that he was “delighted with the response from both Competitors and Marshals and that the hard work of Jenny Lees, Andrew Duerden and Martin Jelley had culminated in a great Measham Rally".

The club will be back in action on Sunday 28 January for the New Year’s Driving Tests at The Brooklands Museum in Surrey.
