ASCC Federal Rally #40 Canberra 2007

Highlight of the ACT Branch organized rally was our attendance on the Sunday at the Wheels 2007 Display Day held near the grounds of Old Parliament House. Of the 600 cars on display we accounted for 29 – the greatest number of Armstrong Siddeleys to attend this event. Other visits included an A/S film at Screensound, a drive to Mt Stromlo Observatory and Tidbinbilla Deep Space Tracking Station. Trish & Fred Jones celebrated the 40th annual rally in style, their Typhoon (C1812958) winning four trophies for 16/18HP, Best Overall, Best Restoration First Time Presented and the Ron Beer Memorial Trophy for mechanical excellence. Their Star Sapphire (C330158) also won first place in it's category.
