Hello All, just a note to say thankyou to everyone who has helped with the progression of the history of the Welsh International Rally.

We are now about there with the information and the images and aim to launch in November or December. It will be a big book, there are lots of anecdotes, stats. and unseen photographs. I will keep you updated as things progress.

The cost is likely to be in the £40 bracket due to the size and we will probably limit issue to 1,500 copies.

Looking forward to this, McTaff - if it's as good as the Epynt tome it will be getting a prominent place on my bookshelf. :up:

A quick update, the new book is in the process of being designed, the first section is complete and looks really good. Hopefully it will be out a little earlier than anticipated in October. A launch also looks likely to happen early in that month and we hope to have a number of former winners along for a forum.

It's looking very likely that the book launch will be held at Brecon Theatre on the evening of Thursday October the 7th. Once it is set in stone I will give a telephone number for anyone wanting to come along, the tickets should be £10 each. We hope to have a number of former winners along and other characters who will be interviewed by John Horton.

Well, it's one year since the book was launched, we now have about 300 to move on before Christmas so that we don't get moaned at for cluttering the dining room! It's a great Christmas present so if you want one be quickish and be ready for the festive season. www.griffinrally.com or from Don Barrow or if out and about on rallies in Wales, Rally Marketing.
