A Standard Super 10 arrives a little too early for the 2023 Rally - that will celebrate 120 years of The Standard Motor Company
"International Celebration of 120 years of the Standard Motor Company"
June 23rd - 25th 2023
Next year’s Rally will be centred on the attractive “Mercure” Daventry Court Hotel, on the Warwickshire - Northamptonshire border.
This modern hotel is set in extensive grounds that we will use for the Sunday Static Rally. It’s very close to Daventry Country Park. Very centrally located, the hotel has all the amenities you would expect of a 4-star venue, including private dining, fitness suite and indoor swimming-pool. It can be approached from all over the country using good A-roads such as the A5, A45 and A46, without the need to use the Motorway network, a bonus if you wish to attend in a Pre-war Classic Car.
A number of non-strenuous rural roadruns from the site will be arranged over this mid-summer weekend
The hospitality industry has in general suffered rapid price inflation in recent months and years, so in these very worrying financial times, the Club has been able to secure very special room-rates. In fact, the 2023 prices will be no more than we paid in 2019, that is fully 4 years ago.
If you came in 2022, you will already know how brilliant this event was. If you have not been before, make a promise to yourself that you will attend, make a note in your diaries of 23rd – 25th June 2023 and come back here in January when you will be able to book the hotel directly and enter, online, or on paper entry forms. The cost is from just £10 including VAT.
The Club hopes that as many as possible will make the effort to attend its biggest event of 2023.
Typical amongst the bouquets we received for 2022 was the following:
On behalf of myself, Heather and Michel, I would like to thank all of you for putting on a really great International Rally. Please do pass my thanks on to the rest of the “team”.
The hotel was simply fantastic. The rooms were great, the food fantastic and the staff simply could not have been more pleasant. This has to rank as one of the best, probably the best, International Rallies I have been to.
Again, many thanks to you all – I look forward to meeting again in 2023.
Thanks and regards,
