Great picture but looks more the Circuit of Ireland Rally with Gallaher sponsorship and red number plate on the FIAT.


Yes. It's a pic from the 1968 Gallaghers Circuit of Ireland, and yes, FIAT with the red rear number plate will be an ROI registered car. Trying to think where the town is. It is very familiar. Initially I thought Caldedon Co Tyrone but the church tower is throwing me off - Alan (Supersonic) have you any ideas?

Spotted these on ebay. Looks like they would have been taken in the very late '70s at an Abingdon open day.

First shot show the Paddy Hopkirk London to Sydney car, with the Evening Standard sponsored Maxi from the 1970 World Cup Rally and a Brian Culcheth Triumph 2.5 in the background

I love the much faded hand painted BMC rosette in the background of the last shot.

Reminiscent of BMC's faded glory.
