The Dimanche Tour, a legendary FDMC special stage rally from the 70's and 80's, gave its name to a new event on Sunday 21/April, with the first Dimanche Sprint at the Army's Eelmoor driver training area, near Aldershot - this is also the venue for the FDMC/Hart MC Sprint Royale, on September 1st.

This report is in 2 sections, and the first page includes cars and drivers not seen in our other recent reports: Martin Prescott, Robert King, Peter Andrews, Jon Payne, Rod Styles, Dave Leonard and Ian Anderson.

A qualifying round in the LCAMC (London Counties) Sprint Championship, and in the MGCC's Luffield Cars Speed Championship, the entry included 16 from the MG clan, and 23 FDMC drivers - possibly a record.
