HAMPSHIRE BRANCH RALLY 25 June 2000
Ninety-three cars attended on a glorious afternoon in the lovely village of Selborne, 12 MM cars, 6 of which were lowlights made a special effort for this MM rally for the MM.
This made a fantastic sight for entrants and visitors, a great photo opportunity and everyone went away knowing far more about our early model than before.
The rally was in the grounds of Gilbert Whites house and the Oats Museum, beautifully positioned under the lee of Selborne Hanger with its famous zigzag path and National Trust walks. The 18th century garden is in the care of Mr David Standing and a garden tour had been arranged. Over 50 people went on a most interesting hour and a half tour. Tired but happy they returned for the prize giving. A great rally with something for everyone.

Printed above is Pam Press from Abborts Langley, owner of the Morris Minor today and the original owner of the car, Mr Sketch who lives in Liss. Pam and a friend were able to trace the ownership history of her car from the factory to the present day. This special reunion was one of several that happened between attendees at the Hampshire Rally in June 2000. If you are interested in tracing the history of your car, Pam suggests starting with the DVLA, as they are extremely helpful.
