June 2018 Annual Rally

The 29th Northern Microcar Rally was based at Torworth Grange just off the A1 north of Newark.  We'd like to thank our hosts Rob, Val, Carla and the team for looking after us so well.





 


Our road run on Friday was to RAF Scampton - home of the Dambusters.  As an active MOD site it was necessary to submit our details well in advance of our visit for security purposes, all went smoothly and we were warmly greeted and escorted by the volunteers of the Heritage Centre.

We had a full tour of the Dambusters exhibition and more modern day exhibits.

 

 

 


As can be seen the RAF are keen to recruit more female pilots to their ranks.  The current Base Commander of RAF Scampton is Wing Commander Joanne Campbell BA (Hons) MA RAF.
 

 

 

Clearly our Events Co-ordinator Ray Glendinning has contacts in very high places as we had a private viewing of the RAF Red Arrows going through their display routine for a forthcoming show!

Our Saturday road run was to the Barrow Hill Round House which is
the last surviving railway roundhouse in the United Kingdom with an operational turntable.

In true Micro Maniacs Club form our journey there was eventful (we got lost!) but nevertheless we enjoyed our drive through some lovely countryside.
 




 

Our final evening was spent in the usual tradition of quiz, raffle and prize giving in the beautiful surroundings of Torworth Grange conservatory and lake.
