Thorpe Abbotts 2010
The first Pre-war Minor Network Rally took place over the weekend of 11th-13th June 2010 and and was centered upon the former 100th Bomb Group airfield at Thorpe Abbotts in South Norfolk. A real cross section of pre-war cars were entered including Minors, Austin Sevens, a Riley Nine tourer and Halbe Tjepkema’s Aston Martin Le Mans. The sole MG entry was a 1970 Midget.
Saturday evening’s rally dinner was a fish and chip supper laid on by ‘The Codfather’ mobile fryer while after dinner entertainment was provided by a period singing duo. Apart from the singing, the rally was a success and set the pattern for those that followed.
