The 2018 Royal Automobile Club 1000 Mile Trial took place from Sunday 8th until Friday 13th July and was enjoyed by 35 crews in a wonderful variety of Vintage cars. The route ran from Woodcote Park, the home of the RAC Club, into mid-Wales for two full days of competition before finishing north of London near Watford. During the six days, as well as some very keen competition, there was plenty of time for socialising and the traditional high-jinks that make the Royal Automobile Club 1000 Mile more than a motorsport event, it is an occasion.
At the end of the Trial two nice pictures: one of a magnificent vehicle in an equally magnificent environment of mid-Wales and one of a very happy Father-Daughter pairing from Switzerland, Mr. Urs Mezger (driver) and his daughter Maxime (navigator).
Their Lagonda M45 Rapide received the FIVA Best Preserved Vehicle award during the 2018 RAC 1000 Mile Trial and received the 1.5kg bronze plaque from FIVA Vice-President Tony Davies at the end-of-event Awards ceremony.
