COMMENT   At its AGM yesterday, the Historic Rallying Car Register committee was in optimistic mood. Strong financial management had reduced losses to a trickle, membership during 2014 had increased and the Club, thanks to improved event revenue, still enjoys a healthy bank balance. And 2015 is also looking good, the Scenic Tours continue to attract full entries and the newly-formed Stage Championship is up and running, with no less than 11 Minis among those taking up the challenge. Well done chaps.

RETRO-FACT   Porsche withdrew from racing after winning Le Mans in 1998, having previously won 16 times. Their first attempt came in 1951 with a pair of 356s; one car finished, in 20th position. Victory came at last in 1970 when Hans Herman/Richard Attwood, driving an iconic 917, led the sister car across the line at an average speed 119.299mph over 343 laps. Porsche cars, including a single 914/6 and three 911s finished in the top ten. Can they come back in 2015, we can but wait and see.
