We believe this medal is from the Lancashire Automobile Club’s predecessor the North East Lancashire Automobile Club.
We can trace our roots back to 1902 and are recognised as the second oldest motor club in the UK. W Birtwistle was one of our members at the time. The 200 mile non stop run in 1905.
All the finishers received an engraved medal. I believe this is the first one I have seen.
The Committee decided that this was such an important part of the Club’s history that the seller was contacted and the medal secured for the Club.
