Royal Lancashire Show – Classic Car Display Report

In All Torque LAC members were encouraged to take their classic cars to form one of the exhibits of this years show.
We turned up in our older Rolls royce Shadow 2 and joined an eclectic gathering of cars, lorries, tractors and farm machinery. The Jaguar Drivers Club and many examples of that marque, as well as a collectyion of beutifully preparedf motor tricicles. At one point a group of Lambretta type motor scooters arrived complete with many mirrors etc; reminiscent of the sixties.
The show comprised many traditional events, show jumpinig, carriage driving and the like. There was judging for cows, sheep, poultry etc; but how they decided which was the best bull, for example, is beyond my comprehension.
More recent innovations happened such as Gin Alley, a beer tent with around eighty different ales and celebrity coooking demonstrations were also part of the scene.
There were different trade stands promotonig everthing from double glazing to laminate flooring, charitiy stands and, of course, many food stalls where one could purchase Chinese food, venison burgers, ice cream and everything in between.
During the day the classic cars were paraded through the show ring where owners were interviewed and gave commentary on their vehicles. This we manged to miss because of all the other interesting displays!
The weather was really good, which is always a benefit at a country show. Sunday dawned warm and sunny and, with tickets being valid, we returned fro another free day out to catch up on what we had not seen.
All in all it was a wonderful show not to be missed, should we be invited to attend again next year.

LAC Members since 1967

Anthony, Carolyn and Richard Taylor celebrate 50 years of Autotune Ltd. at their Rishton workshop. Life and work has evolved over the past years, with work on cars when we started, building Lotus Elans, to avoid purchase tax, servicing customers` GT 40s, Astons, DB2 to DB6,and Jaguar E types and Mk 2s, as regular every day road cars. Back then people would ask why we always drove these awful cars, why not go and buy a super new Ford? Why?!

There were always racing cars in the workshop, usually single seaters, as hill climbing in this area was really big with LAC, Lancs. Car Club and Longton Motor Club all running sprint and hillclimb championships.

Chris Lee asked recently if we remembered winning all three championships in the same year, with our magnificent Formula Atlantic Ensign.

As a family we were pleased to win the Historic Sports Car Club Championship in the brutal Chevrolet powered Kincraft, over 2 Litre, in 1978 and then two years later won it again in the very pretty Willment BRM; the latter car held the Class Record at Thruxton for a few years.


We havesupported all forms of motorsport, maintaining and participating, and always with an LAC badge on the cars. The Goodwood Revival has always been our favourite event, great atmosphere, best parties, good racing and we have missed only two since it began, driving the McLaren M1B, Chinooks and the Willment BRM.

The most iconic moment was when all mechanics sported the LAC badges at the Goodwood Revival, and Canadian customer Jay Esterer who had never raced in England, seen the circuit, and driven the 5.7cc Chinook only once since we rebuilt it from the ground upward, won the Whitsun Trophy race outright. What a weekend! He had owned the car since he was 17 and sent it across for a rebuild. Dreams come true!


To keep us up to date, we sponsored and competed in the Harewood Sprint in June driving the Aristocat Jaguar, manufactured here at Autotune, and the July Aintree Sprint in a Lister Knobbly Jaguar which we won, and still hold the Class Record in the Aristocat.

So, it has been thoroughly enjoyable, hard graft, long hours, little spare time, but has taken us all racing around the world, across Europe, America, Canada and South Africa. And now son, Richard who gained a First Class Honours Degree in Motor Sport Engineering is hard at it in the workshop, along with another of his Graduate Engineering pals, which is currently full of interesting McLarens and Lolas; nothing has changed only the age group.

JAG CORNER Memories Of A Mark 1 Jaguar

The 2.4 and 3.4 later known as the Mark 1 is one of the forgotten cars within the Jaguar range. When it was originally launched as the 2.4 in 1955 it was an instant success. Later in 1957 when the 3.4 was launched there can be no doubt that Jaguar had single-handedly opened up a completely new car market, the compact high performance saloon car. The 3.4 had the looks, 120 mph top speed, reputed 210 bhp, blistering pace and disc brakes to stop it. It was driven by the stars of the day and the everyday transport for the Formula 1 World Champion Mike Hawthorn. It was the equivalent of the BMW M3 or Audi A4 Sport.

As soon as the Mark 2 was launched in 1959 no one really wanted a 2.4 or 3.4 anymore. It has become a rare car, a perfect example of Jaguar’s ambition in the 1950’s but, it should never be forgotten that without it there would have been no Mark 2, which was such a commercial success for the Company. There have been three Mark 1s in my life:

HHG 880 – my father’s car, which he owned from 1959 to 1963.

Another view of HHG 880, note the LAC badge on the left of the three attached to the number plate.
My sister and I in front of HHG 880. My pedal car was a close second in my affections to the Jaguar.

PAM 956 – my first Mark 1 which I bought in 1994

WLF 653 – the replacement to PAM which I bought in 2007.

As with most classic car enthusiasts you are usually drawn to the cars of your childhood or youth. When my father bought HHG 880 he was probably the perfect target customer for Jaguar. He was in his 30’s with two young children, after an Armstrong Siddeley, Jowett Javelin and a Mark 7 Jaguar, not necessarily in that order, the 3.4 must have been a revelation. I was three years old when the car was bought so we had it for those formative years for a boy when cars are special. It was a light grey colour with a red leather interior.

I always insisted that I sat in the front of the car, but at three and four years old I was too small to see out of the front windscreen. My father had a small four legged wooden stool made for me which fitted snugly between the two

A stop on the way to a holiday in the early 1960’s.

front seats above the transmission tunnel. This was possible because the handbrake for the Mark 1 was between the driver’s seat and driver’s door. Nowadays people would be horrified by the thought of a child on a stool in the front of a car. But we did thousands of miles without any problems, though I do remember my father’s left arm holding me back if he had to brake sharply.

For a compact car there was plenty of space. I remember that my bike was put in the back; it fitted upright between the front seats and the rear seat. Sometimes my Grandfather was with us and he had to sit in the back with my bike whilst I was in the front.

My older sister and I had a long running competition on who had been driven the faster in the car. I could only claim 107mph on a three lane straight road near what is now British Aerospace in Samlesbury. Nowadays when I drive on this road it is a wide two lane road with two sets of traffic lights on it and a 50mph speed limit. I wonder whether this is an example of the last care-free years of motoring, or was my father being irresponsible. He certainly did not seem so to me at the time, it was all very exciting!

When we stayed with my Grandparents at the weekend in St Annes I would help clean the car, my responsibility was polishing the leaping Jaguar mascot and cleaning its teeth, as well as polishing the two chrome tail pipes. If I was lucky I was taken out for a drive down the lanes near the market garden area. I sat on my father’s knee and steered the car. Other times I sat in the passenger seat and changed gear when told, so I suppose I can claim that I mastered the Moss gearbox from an early age.

Sadly in 1963 the time came to sell the car but I always remember that car with great affection knowing that one day I would have a Mark 1.

Salon Prive 28th June at Browsholme Hall – Report

The Blackburn Cathedral Appeal 100 Club held its 2nd Salon Prive at Browsholme Hall on Friday 28th June, and what a great time we had.

This event was not a park your car in a field event, it was an event where owners of 31 classic cars, and guests, chatted about the virtues of each car on display, and probably others, in wonderful sunshine. Those who wished enjoyed a tour of the magnificent 600 years old Hall and then everyone gathered on the terrace for Canapes and Prosecco before a fine lunch in the convivial atmosphere of the adjoining Tithe Barn.

Thanks to those LAC members who supported the event by displaying cars, photographing events or marshalling the cars (and people). This was another event in 100 Club’s Arts, Music, Heritage and Culture programme to raise money to further the work of the Music Outreach project, “Sing Together”, run by the Cathedral. Work is to be done in the crypt of the Cathedral to make it more accessible to the community of Lancashire, create income, and enable the project to reach even more children in more Lancashire schools.

During the 10 years of the project over 150 different primary schools have taken part and 120 participate each year. Approximately 20,000 children have benefitted from the scheme which brings the joy of singing and the exhilaration of performance to many who will never experience it because of the lack of funding and aspiration for music education nationally. The project needs to be supported to continue to do its great work in schools of any, or no denomination in all areas of Lancashire.

2019 Fellsman Report

I’d like to start by mentioning that after last year’s Fellsman John Hartley decided that having organized the Fellsman for 25 years it was time for him to put the maps away and hand the organization over to someone else. Thank you, John, for all the brain teasing but very enjoyable events you produced for us all.

This year’s Fellsman started and finished at The Black Bull Inn at Old Langho and covered 140 miles circular route on maps 102 & 103. In order to help the less experienced navigators they had the option to use instructions for plotting the route that were easier to use than the standard instructions issued to the more experienced entrants.

On what turned out to be a dry but not very bright day the first car departed at 9.15am on the 70 mile morning section to the lunch Halt control at the Manor Inn at Cockerham. So that the organizers could check if the cars had plotted and followed the correct route, entrants had to record the codes from the 36 code boards that had been placed at secret locations along the route, 20 on the morning section and 16 in the afternoon.

Travelling west the cars past over the Ribchester Bridge and followed the B road towards Longridge before turning right towards Knowle Green. The first 2 codes were found by all the cars but code 3 was missed by the nearly all, only three entries realized that the Spot Height they had to pass through was not on the crossroads but a short distance further to the east which took the route on a loop past Huntington Hall. Most navigators managed to plot the next few miles correctly as the route passed over Jeffrey Hill to pass Longridge golf club before turning right to pass Wheatley Farm and then north towards Hesketh Lane.

The route did a few loops in passing Barns Fold and then Horns reservoirs before passing through Inglewhite and on to join the A6 at Barton. The next section took the cars onto the little used roads in The Fylde area with the route instructions primarily based on fifteen Bridges that had to be crossed before rejoining the A6 just over a mile north of Barton. So far, the majority of navigators had managed to locate most of the code boards although nine had missed numbers 11 and 12.

The route now passed back to the east of the M6 and passed through Claughton, then to the east of Scorton before climbing up and passing to the left of Nicky Nook. At this point a nice view of Morecambe Bay could be seen to the west but drivers should have been watching the road and most navigators might still have been plotting and missed seeing it.

The final part of the route before the lunch halt went around the roads in the Hollins Lane area and only 8 cars managed to locate all 3 code boards located within about a mile of each other in that little section. All the cars that started arrived at the Manor Inn for about an hour’s Lunch break Buffet with car numbers 2, 4, 7, having done particularly well in locating 19 of the possible 20 codes followed by cars 1, 15, 18, 23 with 18 codes.

Starting the afternoon section, the route passed through Galgate before turning south west to a tricky little section in the Dolphinholme area. The crossroads in grid square 52/52 (map 102) are not quite as shown on the map and had to be used twice by using all four roads by approaching NW, departing SW, app SE, dep NE. The route then headed north again towards Quernmore and as in the morning section a Spot Height location caused some crews a problem. Only car number 4 succeeded in plotting correctly and locating all the codes on this first section of the afternoon with others either missing or finding some of the codes in the wrong order.

Before travelling east over the Trough of Bowland some cars missed the code on the gated road south through Abbeystead. After Dunsop Bridge the route did a loop south on the west of the River Hodder, over Doeford Bridge then headed north again east of the River through Whitewell. The final section that passed through Bashall caused little problems to most crews apart from the section that started just north of Stonyhurst College and finished entering Whalley.

The instruction was to pass through nine coloured road junctions before entering Whalley and all the cars failed to answer correctly a question that would prove they travelled the correct route. Crews had been told in the final instructions, and verbally at the briefing, not to use any road that was for access only. It would appear that most if not all crews ignored this instruction and, in an attempt, to get the section correct used the access only road that leaves Hurst Green to pass to the North of the Church before joining the B6243.

The correct route after leaving sh148, turn right and pass through college grounds, straight on at access only junction to the triangle at the junction with the B6243. By going the long way around the triangle, you pass through three junctions, one at each point of the triangle. Keep on the B road at the next junction and pass over the River and then keep on the B6243 at the next junction before turning right to Mitton Green and then left on to the B6246 at Great Mitton. Cars 4 and 10 recorded all 16 codes on the afternoon section followed by cars 9, 16 and 25 with 15.

If you’re wondering why I haven’t mentioned car 10 which recorded all 36 codes it’s because it was navigated by John Hartley, (Fellmans originator and brains of the event for the last 25 years) and I’m sure he won’t mind if I tell you that he had some prior knowledge of the route!

Thanks to all who marshalled, without their help the event wouldn’t take place. And finally, thanks to all of you that took part and I hope you enjoyed it enough to want to return for the 27th Fellsman when I shall try again to achieve the impossible by finding some roads that JH hasn’t previously used.

Coast ot Coast 2019

Coast to Coast Saturday 13th July 2019

We significantly changed the route for 2019. Normally we keep the same lunch halt which has been at Akebar Park for many years. However, whilst we were happy with the venue eventually you run out of roads to use.

So to open up pastures new we went looking for an alternative and found The Inn at South Stainley just north of Harrogate. Venues with the amenities we need are few and far between. They have to be able to cope with around 150 people arriving in around 40 minutes, be able to serve them and enable them to get on their war in 55minutes as well as provide adequate parking and be flexible on time for serving lunch. The Inn ticked all the boxes so we were able to go further south than usual.

The route started from the Midland Hotel in Morecambe at 08.30 and went out to Halton and Caton before taking in the Trough of Bowland and Slaidburn to a coffee and comfort stop at The Anchor in Gargrave.

From there we travelled east through Grassington and Pateley Bridle towards Ripon. Just before Fountains Abbey we turned right to go through Markington and south to The Inn at South Stainley. The first car arrived about 11.20.

After a good buffet the cars left going east to Aldwark Bridge and then through Castle Howards grounds and into the Yorkshire Moors passing through Cropton and the fords from the opening shots of All Creatures Great and Small. The next Control was at Scripps Garage in Goathland a popular stop on previous events.

We took advantage of some newly surface roads to make our way to the finish at Dunsley Hall via Grosmont and Sandsend (to complete the coast to coast adventure. The first car reaching Dunsley Hall at around 3.20pm.

We were greeted at Dunsley Hall by the Mayor of Scarborough and parked on their front lawn for an informal Concours d’Elegance. Whilst the judging took place the entrants enjoyed a buffet and had a good natter about the days motoring.

The Mayor chose the Ford Mustang as the car she wished she could take home and our acting president, Andrew Ogden, stepped in to select the President’s Choice after being banned from choosing a certain red Alfa Romeo! The President’s choice went to the 1953 Mercedes.


After saying goodbyes to those who chose to return home or who had booked accommodation elsewhere those staying at Dunsley Hall had an enjoyable evening before returning home on the Sunday.

Many thanks to all the organisers and Marshals who made the day possible and of course all the entrants who brought their fine motor cars for us to enjoy.

Manchester to Blackpool 2019

57th Manchester to Blackpool Run Sunday 9th June 2019
 The Lancashire Automobile Club must live a charmed life at present (here’s hoping it continues on July 13th!) for after our escape from storm Hannah on the St Georges Day Run we got the only dry day for weeks (and weeks) for our Manchester to Blackpool.
As usual the organisers had found some ‘new’ roads for the entrants to enjoy and had a new coffee stop lined up (at the very last minute following the sudden closure of The Duke of Wellington). More on this later!
The start was from Worsley Old Hall who opened early to serve coffee and refreshments. The entry included 16 pre war cars amongst the 54 entrants. As usual we had two intertwining routes with a Direct Route (avoiding steep inclines and somewhat shorter) and a Scenic Route (more challenging to car and driver with a somewhat longer mileage and higher expected average speed).
Both routes ran out from Worsley and up onto the A6 before going through Lostock to the Bolton Ring Road. Here the routes split with the Scenic going up to Belmont and across to Chapeltown before joining the Direct route which had followed the ring road before going towards Ramsbotham.
After meeting up the routes ran past Helmshore Mill and onto the Grane Road to the coffee halt and Control. Unfortunately the manager was expecting us at 09.00 (we don’t know why as we had said 10.00!) and was not happy. He then stopped serving coffees as he said he had to prepare for the lunch opening. These things can happen when you are on the last minute organising things but it does mean we are looking for a new venue next year. Many thanks to the marshal crew who kept things moving with the minimum of fuss.
After the Coffee halt the routes again split with the Direct Route following the Blackburn Ring Road and then up to Mellor. In the meantime the Scenic Route ran out to Sabden and over the Nick o’Pendle to travel through Great Harwood and rejoin the Direct Route at Mellor.
The two routes then went through Cuerdale and Lostock Hall to our traditional control at Bowker BMW and MINI, Preston Dock. They were then on the home run travelling south of the Dock and out to Freckleton on their way to a Control at Wrea Green. From there it was onto Lytham and Blackpool for a finish at Stanley Park where the finishers were greeted by the Mayor of Blackpool. The first cars arrived just after 13.30 in time to be judged for the Concours.
The weather was fantastic for the presentation and the following received Concours Awards:

Group 2                 Trevor and Jean Jackson – Car 9 Austin 7 Super Sports

Group 3                 Peter and Barbara Batty – Car 31 MGB Roadster

Group 4                 Andrew and Lindsay Ponsillo – Car 44 TVR Griffith 500
Overall Concours Award Ken Hadley Memorial Trophy

Nigel and Emma Hughes – Car 7 Singer Super 9 Sports

Judges Choice
Geoff Yates and Micheal Williamson – Car 19 Austin A40


Blackpool Corporation Trophy (Mayors Choice)
Ian and Sue Thompson – Car 8 Aston Martin Le Mans Tourer
As always many thanks to all involved.
PS on the way home the heavens opened -yes we were that lucky!

St Georges Day Run 2019

    St Georges Day Run 28th April 2019

The lead up to the event was somewhat stressful for the organisers. Anthony Taylor and his ‘team’. Storm Hannah was doing her worst with widespread flooding and downed trees being reported from most of the country. On the Friday, if weather reports were to be belived, serious consideration should be given to cancellation. The forecast for Saturday was for heavy rain and winds but it hinted things could improve on the Sunday and so it was to prove.
The entrants gathered at Blackburn Northern Sports to enjoy a bacon butty before the first car left at 10.00. The route went through Mellor and then south west after Osbaldeston. As we travelled away from Samlesburt we got into new territory for the event. The route took entrants throgh Hoghton out to Croston and as far as Martin Mere Wildfowl Trust befor turning east to go through Burscough and Parbold Hill to a new coffee halt at Heskin Hall at Heskin just outside Wrightington.

I say coffee halt but many entrants decided to stay longer enjoying a meal or simply exploring the hall and the handicrafts sale which was going on at the time. The team of Marshals kept things well organised, mant thanks to Glyn, Ronn, Nigel, Tony and the rest of the team. And many thanks to Heskin Hall for allowing us to use their premises.
From Heskin Hall the route went through Leyland and north of Chorley to enter the Rivington area with fantsic views of the reservoirs and out as far as Southport. From there it was over to Belmont and on to the Grane Road before looping back to Haslingden and north to Burnley. The home leg was over to Fence and round Pendle hill to complete a memorable journey back to Blackburn Northern Sports where Carolyn and Eileen were waiting having cleaned up from the mornings butties to lay on an impressive buffett.

First cars were back around 3.30 with the others coming home over the next hour or so.

As a footnote the effects of Hannah were to be seen all along the route with flooded fields and downed branches but fortunatley our route was unimpeaded and most of the day was in bright sunshine.

Many thanks to all involved in particular the organisers, marshals and the many entrants who made the day with some fantastic automobiles.

2019 Wales Rally GB

Wales Rally GB 2019

With a Ceremonial Start in Liverpool plus a visit to Oulton Park on the Thursday the provisional route for the 2019 World Rally GB is looking good!

Thursday, 3 October 2019

Following a final pre-event Shakedown held this year for the first time in Gwydir Forest, Snowdonia, on Thursday morning, all the competing teams will make their way to Liverpool for a high-profile Ceremonial Start on the Waterfront. The 2019 competitive action then blasts off at the popular Oulton Park circuit close to Chester on an exclusively designed special stage incorporating sections of the picturesque race track. It is the first time the well-known Cheshire motor sports venue has hosted the World Rally Championship since 1993 and, with good transport links, permanent infrastructure and great spectating facilities, Oulton Park’s re-appearance is sure to be welcomed by the large numbers living in the surrounding regions. It provides those based in major cities such as Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield – all within a 90-minute drive – a rare and not-to-be-missed opportunity to witness the extraordinary excitement served up by the World Rally Championship.

Following the dramatic Thursday evening curtain-raiser, the crews will head back to Llandudno in readiness for the forest stages that follow.

Friday, 4 October 2019

Taking advantage of the rally’s vibrant new base in Llandudno, Friday’s schedule is based in the forests of the Snowdonia National Park in north Wales. The day’s schedule features nine speed tests set either side of a lunchtime return to the busy Service Park located right in the heart of the historic resort town.

The day opens in the shadows of Mount Snowdon with classic stages in Conwy County’s forests of Elsi and Penmachno close to Betws-y-Coed and then heads further south towards Welshpool for timed tests in the revered Dyfnant and Aberhinant forests. All four stages are repeated in the afternoon with the second run through Aberhirnant taking place well after sunset in total darkness – always a crowd-pleaser.

Adding to the spectator experience, Friday afternoon’s programme also includes a revisit to the stage at Slate Mountain now with a new, upgraded surface laid since the venue was first used last October. Located at The Slate Caverns near Blaenau Ffestiniog, the destination is well-known to adrenalin-seekers for its mind-boggling underground adventures as well as being home to Zip World Titan, Europe’s first four-person zip line.

Saturday, 5 October 2019

Billed again as ‘Super Saturday’, the rally’s longest and most demanding day features three epic special stages, all set in the mountains to the east of Aberystwyth with excellent spectating for the large numbers of weekend visitors, plus the new street stage on the seafront at Colwyn Bay.

Dyfi, Myherin and Hafren are true classics that always push crews to their limits and provide fans with some outstanding viewing opportunities. As last year, Hafren has been extended to incorporate the Sweet Lamb rally complex – always a fans’ favourite with its jumps and water splash.

All three stages are tackled twice with the second run through Myherin being screened live for television audiences right around the world. A lunchtime regroup on the busy streets of central Newtown punctuates the action.

Following the frenetic action in the forests of mid Wales, the WRC returns to the Service Park and overnight halt back in Llandudno via an all-new Saturday evening spectator stage on the recently-refurbished promenade in Colwyn Bay. Sited adjacent to the A55 and the North Wales Coast Line railway, the latest addition provides both rally fans and families in North Wales and north west of England – with a fantastic opportunity to experience the WRC in captivity away from its more natural habitat in the great outdoors. With donuts, hairpins and chicanes, they will not be disappointed.

Sunday, 6 October 2019

After Saturday’s arduous exploits in mid Wales, Sunday sees the WRC action return to north Wales with two tough forest stages close to the Llyn Brenig Reservoir, an adventure playground set high up in the heart of the Denbigh Moors. Both Alwen and Brenig tests are repeats of 2017 when the event was famously won by local hero Elfyn Evans. Both stages are run twice either side of a timed section around the iconic Great Orme peninsula and short mid-morning service halt back in Llandudno. The second visit to Brenig is the event’s concluding Wolf Power Stage, offering surviving crews the chance to score bonus championship points in front of a live global television audience.

After a brief TV podium for the overall winners at the Brenig Visitor Centre, official prize-giving for all those completing the 2019 Wales Rally GB will take place at the Ceremonial Finish on Llandudno Promenade, four full days after the intrepid crews originally set out from Liverpool.
