HRA meeting this Wednesday, April 10

Jeremy BrowneGuest Speaker Jeremy Browne – on driving a 1972 world rally car in Europe and other tales.

Raffle Proceeds to Rural CFA brigades in Mt Disappointment area


We have lined up yet another interstate guest speaker for you all. Jeremy Browne from South Australia. More on that below.

Come an hear about the fabulous “Wellsford Wander” event, March 23 – a new style of rally event that was extremely well received by the competitors. Hear how we did it and were home before dinner!

Hear also the feedback from our first Rally Retro Day – it’s looking very promising for a success. If you can’t be at Avalon on April 7, then come to the meeting and hear how it all went down.

Each meeting we hold a raffle with all proceeds going to a charity – this time it is rural fire brigades in the area we will be competing the following Saturday – at the Victoria Cross Rally, Saturday April 13. That is Broadford, Clonbinane, Wandong, Flowerdale. Tickets are 3 for $5. Prizes – can you bring a prize for us to raffle off?

We are now just 10 months away from the final HRA Gnome #100, so it’s number 95 on offer in April. A handy pocket sized -go anywhere-Gnome will also be raffled off.

All welcome.

If you are new to the HRA or this will be your first meeting, please make yourself known to our Membership Secretary, Kate Officer.

Where: East Malvern RSL, Stanley Grose Drive, East Malvern
Time: 8:00 pm, meals: from 6:30 pm

our guest speaker has been in the sport for over 50 years. Would you believe his first rally was in a Mini 850 in Jamaica in 1965?

Since then he has competed in the UK and Germany in the early 1970’s, been the South Australian Rally Champion co-driver 4 times over 3 decades and finished 12th in a London to Sydney Marathon Rally.

In between all that he campaigned a works prepared Lancia Fulvia in historic rally events all over Europe over an 8 year period.

He still activley competes as a co-driver in the South Australian Championship. and occasionally as a driver in his Mini Cooper S that he’s owned for 50 years
