‘Please drive me and my car to Mor­ris rally’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

A Mor­ris Mi­nor owner is ap­peal­ing for help to get him and his car to the Mor­ris Ve­hi­cle As­so­ci­a­tion Rally.

Dar­ren White, from Mans­field, Notts has owned his four-door split-screen Mi­nor Deluxe for 10 years. As his li­cence was re­voked for med­i­cal rea­sons, he is un­able to drive to the event and is search­ing for an en­thu­si­ast who can help him cel­e­brate the Mi­nor’s mile­stone.

The show will be held at Cat­ton Hall, Wal­ton Upon Trent, Der­byshire, on 1-3 July. ‘The NHS has cleared me to drive again af­ter I re-take my driv­ing test, but I keep fail­ing my the­ory test!’ says Dar­ren.

He’s not new to the Mor­ris Mi­nor; prior to his cur­rent car he had a split-screen Trav­eller. ‘I love the sound they make, the en­gine note and the gear­box whine. I’ve been in­volved in Mor­ris Mi­nor clubs for a num­ber of years and I love the so­cial scene too,’ he adds.

The Mor­ris Ve­hi­cle As­so­ci­a­tion Rally will cel­e­brate the 40th an­niver­sary of the best-sell­ing Mi­nor. It is set to be the big­gest yet, with rep­re­sen­ta­tion from each of the UK re­gional ar­eas of the Mor­ris Mi­nor Own­ers’ Club.

‘If who­ever helps would rather drop my car and me off on the Satur­day and collect us on the Mon­day that’s fine with me,’ says Dar­ren. Sam Skel­ton
