Well a week today at 12 noon we open the gates to the 2015 national.
The road runs have been printed and tested.
The beer and wine has been ordered and we hope to equal or beat the record for the most friskies at a rally.
It would be great if we could also beat the record for the most Bonds, trienkels, smitts, isettas and rum cars.
So all we need is you.
We will probably get a few thinks wrong but what we get right we hope will make an enjoyable weekend.

Hard to believe the Rally is only a week away! So looking forward to our trip to the UK and meeting all the Frisky owners and others here on Rumcars. Save a few beers for me!

Is it a skip of Friskys? No, perhaps not.

A well attended rally, helped by the sunshine. Seems the full program was well received and I do not think I heard a negative word.
For myself I lay up Sat afternoon in the hope my leg would behave OK on Sunday. I arrived at the rally for 11 am but by 2 pm I had to give in and sit down. Steve Vine has now been struck down with the same thing. Thereafter it was a case of moving from chair to chair. But lots to see, and folk to talk too. Learned things I did not know, so well worth the visit for that alone.
So well done all and some of the new faces are getting more recognizable, which is a good thing. There is more support, needs to be tapped and this weekend will help.

A huge, HUGE 'thank you' to Malcolm Dudley and the Frisky team for an excellent rally.  Good weather always helps (and it was good, especially for the display on Sunday), but it was the thorough organisation which really shone through.

Well-thought road runs - to Coventry Transport Museum on the Friday, seemingly most of Warwickshire on the Saturday - had clear routes, carefully chosen good road surfaces (I'd even believe carefully arranged good surfaces???) and specially arranged parking: right outside the museum, then right alongside the river at Stratford.

A packed marquee in the evening - with large quantities of free food and drink.

Malcolm was to be seen busily organising, welcoming, encouraging at all times, throughout the weekend.  He'll need to sleep for a week!  (And should do so happy that he got it right.)

You've set the bar high for future organisers, Malcolm!  Brilliantly well done.

(Pics from the rally will appear soon on national-microcar-rally.co.uk where you'll also find details of the rally review meeting, to be held on Sunday 25 October.)

As a Messerschmitt owner I think I should complain that there were far to many Friskys present. Its well known that Messerschmitts are far more important. The number of relative marque entrants should be based on the proportion and importance of each marque. Since I, like many Schmitters, could not be arsed to bring my car I calculate that as 11/2 Friskys. Something should be done about this total exhibition of over enthusiasm.

Apologies to Chris Thomas, we got interrupted in talking and I may have left you with the wrong impression. Still got a huge amount to do here. But once I have things sorted out I will have more time to apply brains to information flows. To wit, I found the CC Zero stuff the other day.

Dear Al

No apology needed

I was suffering from a bad cold (Man flue) and was not firing on all cylinders so was not very communicative.

I have to thank Stuart for bringing along his Norsjo for the Rumcar Stand and helping me pack up, to Alan Bud and Malcolm Parker who helped man the stand, to Malcolm Dudley for reserving us a prime spot next to the entrance, to everybody who purchased a subscription to Rumcar News, and everybody who came to chat (or was it just to get in the shade)

Malcolm Dudley and all the National Microcar Rally Team must be congratulated for not only organising a great event but also for not stopping between Thursday morning to Sunday night. They were on overdrive. I know from talking to many of the overseas visitors that they feel very welcome, which encourages them to come again. That is a measure of how friendly the atmosphere was, which can not be faked.

As Dave said, The bar has been raised. Congratulations to the Frisky Register team.

Back to be to catch up on my sleep

Chris Thomas

Thank you all for your kind comments. I thought i would post a couple of pictures of the frisky line up as we beat the world record of 13 friskies when we lined up 15.

I rather like this idea of a year special model for the more unusual, or rare marques. It could be included into the planning of future rallies, unless, like Peel, there is momentum to do their own event, of course.

I saw mention of the new Gordon owner but not the car ? If so how did he make himself known - or was it obvious  :)
