The organising Committee of the HRA 30th Anniversary Dinner have just confirmed that Matt Bryson will be our Guest Speaker.
Matt is an endurance rally champion, winning three Peking to Paris rallies (2010, 2013, 2019), coming second by narrow margins on the Trans-American Challenge (2012), the Road to Mandalay (2015) and the Road to Saigon (2018).
Matt is inextricably linked to the Leyland P-76.
Yes, it was his late Father John Bryson that co-drove with Evan Green in a P-76 in the 1974 World Cup Rally, also the subject of the popular book “A boot full of right arms”. Two of Matt’s three Peking-Paris wins were in a P-76 in tribute livery of the Green/Bryson 1974 car.
Matt is a popular and sought after guest speaker at many international and local sporting clubs, with many amusing and hair-raising stories of rallying through remote and wild country, some friendly and some less so.
