  • Wales Rally GB - Random musings by Paul Hernaman

    As work and house moves have faded away the lure to go out and stand in a forest to have mud and stones thrown at me after standing in cold, damp conditions for an hour beforehand has risen. Last year I wandered across to Wales to watch the rally on the Friday/Saturday with partial success. The partial bit being despite getting up at an early hour the crowds to get into Dyfi and Gartheiniog had to be seen to be believed and accordingly I missed a chunk of the first run.

  • The Preston, The Future

    Hands up who loves the Preston Rally. Good, that’s all of you, now pay attention because
    this is important. For the unaware, The One and Only has two very real problems. These are
    related, the first being bad enough but the second is potentially fatal for the event.
    Regrettably I am quite serious, in case you’d not realised it, this very special sporting event is
    truly in jeopardy.

  • Preston Rally 2016

    Local lad Stefan Taylor followed in his father’s footsteps in Suffolk and Norfolk taking
    victory on Chelmsford MC’s famously challenging event, with former long-term Clerk of
    the Course and twice previous winner Adrian Gladwin navigating their Proton Coupe.
    Three-time victor Dave Taylor, the winning driver’s dad and good friend of the navigator,
    himself event CoC for four years in the 1980’s – who at that time devised the popular
    format of this rally – and driving the Closing Car this year, was possibly the happiest man
    of all at the finish! Very proud!

  • The One (Two) and Only (Two) Preston

    Having been a member of West Essex since 1970, I very sadly decided late last year to transfer my allegiance to Chelmsford MC, as they seemed to be very active in many disciplines, and I had been marshalling on some of their events the previous year and had bumped into several old faces such as Geoff Lobb and Gary Nicholls.

  • Club of the Year 2009

    TonyM's picture

    Chelmsford Motor Club was awarded "JLT Sport / MSA Motor Club of the Year 2009" at the MSA Night of Champions.
    Paul Barrett & Brian Jaggs attended.

    Here are a few photos from the MSA awards night - in the group photo note Brian standing
    just in front and to the left of Ross Brawn (and Paul next to Pat Doran, Lydden Hill owner
    & Rallycross champion).

    The compère for the night was Tony Jardine - he read out most of the brief that Paul wrote
    for the submission to the MSA, and which was subsequently published in Motorsports Now.
