The Austin A30 A35 Owners Club International Rally 2020

We have made the tough decision to postpone the 2020 International Rally, due to the ongoing Corona virus (Covid-19) outbreak. As we are sure many will appreciate, this is a decision that has not been taken lightly. This being said, we feel strongly that the health, safety and well-being of our members must be our top priority.

This year, as was widely advertised, was due to be our 50th anniversary celebration so we are keen to still mark this event as soon as it is safe to do so. With the current advice we have decided to reschedule the event to the August Bank Holiday as long as the guidance from Government allows us to do so. Should the outbreak continue longer than is currently anticipated we may have to look at this again but we will be monitoring this very closely and will give everyone as much notice as possible.

The event will now take place from 27th-31st August 2020 at the same venue, Leamington Rugby Football Club. This means the clubs AGM will also move accordingly and the calling notice will be published in the next edition of Sidelights. The AGM will be held at 4PM on Saturday 29th August 2020. We have moved the date back as late as we can before the new rugby season begins and keeping to a bank holiday we hope the extra day allows as many as possible to attend. We appreciate it is a busy time of the rally season but we have done the best we possibly can.


Having taken advice from the the council who grant the lottery licence for our raffle, they assure us that moving the date in this exceptional circumstance is fine as long as we inform our members. The new time and date for the draw will be Sunday 30th August 2020 at 4pm at the Leamington Rugby Football Club, Kenilworth Rd, Blackdown, Leamington Spa. CV32 6RG

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support for the rally and look forward to seeing as many of you that can make the new date. Refunds for anyone who has already booked but cannot attend the new date are available, either in full or in part.

Please email or write to Paul Lewis, 56 Coombe Road, Nailsea BS48 2HH (same address as bookings) and a full refund will be made in due course. To assist us with this, please ensure you include your name, vehicle registration number and who to make the cheque made payable to or your BACS details.

If you still havent booked for the event or would now like to a new updated form will be published in the next Sidelights.

Many thanks
2020 International Rally Team.
