Beaulieu A7 National Rally
The 59th A7 rally at this lovely venue in the New Forest – it’s always great fun! The special theme for this event is Austin 7s of the 1920s
The weekend starts with a Saturday afternoon amble along the tranquil lanes of the New Forest, and we are grateful to the Dorset A7 Club for arranging this. A Saturday evening meal takes place in the marquee on the rally field. Camping next to the rally field is popular with many. On the Sunday, the cars are neatly arranged by class and age, and we always have a “special theme” which this year is Coachbuilt and Fabric bodied cars. A popular spectacle is the Gymkhana which takes centre stage on the rally field. The event concludes with the presentation of over 30 trophies, accompanied by a welcome absence of long speeches. 2021 saw the same enthusiastic team of organisers and happy helpers, and we’re pleased that we can run this famous and successful 750 Motor Club event under the banner of the Pre-War Austin 7 Club. We’d be delighted to see new faces from the PWA7C.
Powderham Historic Vehicle GatheringClub Event
One of the major events this year will be our Club stand at the Historic Vehicle Gathering at Powderham Castle, Kenton near Exeter. The club will once again cover entry fees for DA7C members who display their cars on our Stand and we plan to have the A7 Centenary as our theme this year. You can exhibit on one or both days and cars can be left on the stand overnight on Saturday or driven to and from the venue. Space is also available for trailer parking.
The show is organised by the Crash Box & Classic Car club of Devon Ltd, and is widely recognised as one of the very best in the country. It offers a huge range of attractions and displays for all members of the family. Have a look at their website www.historic-vehicle-gathering.info it really is a great day out. July may seem a long way in the future, but with the amount of planning necessary for an event of this size, entries need to be in early and the latest date for reserving a space on our stand is Saturday May 21st so please don’t delay.
