The Turner Sports Car Rally is fast approaching on Sunday July 08th 2007 at the Manor Hotel - Crickhowell
As with previous years I again extend a warm invite to all with an interest in the marquee to come along and enjoy the gathering of cars and meet with fellow owners and enthusiasts in the scenic Brecon Beacons where we will all be gathered in the lower car park of the Hotel which is located high up on the side of the Black Mountains looking down on the Usk Valley and thus makes for not only for a scenic drive to and from the event, but also a very pleasant setting for us all to gather together in appreciation of the Turner marque.
Please do wherever possible bring along your Turner to show during the day, The Condition is really not important and as past rally’s have shown part built projects or potential future projects gain equally as much attention as the roadworthy cars, and there is no better opportunity to discuss those restoration problems directly with other enthusiast who hold a great knowledge about Turner restoration and maintenance. There is ample parking available in the lower car park for Trailers and If it is not feasible to bring your Turner along on the day – Why not just come along and enjoy the day and draw inspiration from the cars that will be gathered together on the day.
I understand a small number of rooms are still available should you wish to stay over for the event - For more information or accommodation enquiries the Manor Hotel can be contacted on 01873 810212 or via the internet at www.manorhotel.co.uk
All being well Jack Turner will again be joining us during the afternoon to cast his expert eye over the gathered cars and meet with enthusiasts.
Could I ask those that are planning to attend with their cars to confirm by return to assist me in planning for the event.
I hope you will be able to join us and I Look forward to seeing you there !
