65th Anniversary Rally update


65th ANNIVERSARY RALLY 15th/16th June 2013

Most J-type Register members will have known for a year or so that the venue, Wythall Transport Museum, is the same as was used for the 50th and 60th Rallies and that the dates are 15th and 16th June, which includes Father’s Day.

This email is to announce finalised artwork for the Rally posters and leaflets. We need to publicise this rally as much as possible. We will be sending images and information out to the Classic press.

All owners and enthusiasts are invited. If you are an owner, please try to bring along your vehicle – we would love this to be the biggest and best UK display of J vans ever. The Register managed to attract 29 club vehicles to the 50th, and 29 again ( but many not the same as the previous ones) for the 60th. Let’s see if we can get the total into the thirties, with so many vans having been restored recently.

The Museum will have all manner of additional attractions, including classic bus rides into Birmingham and around the surrounding countryside. It might be possible to arrange a classic bus ride to the (scant) remains of the factory, as we did for the 50th.Please let me know if this is of interest.

The Museum’s full address is Chapel Lane Wythall Worcs B47 6JX. If driving, it is best approached from junction 3 of the M42 motorway. Head towards Birmingham as far as the large roundabout at Beckett’s Farm, turn left and then left again for the Museum entrance. If in a club vehicle you will be guided into the club display area, if in an everyday modern vehicle you will be directed to parking areas.

To coincide with this announcement there is a new page on the J-Register website: where comments from members and enthusiasts re the rally will be placed and regularly updated. If you would like to add a comment please send a message via the ‘Contact Us’ button or via this email address.

Images released for all press/publicity/website/blog use. High resolution images available on request. If publishing, please use entire graphic image. Cropping of poster only by prior permission.
