Turner Sports Cars   2009 UK Turner Rally

UK Turner Rally
Sunday June 28th 2009
The Manor Hotel, Crickhowell, South Wales

Sunday 28th June saw Turner Sports Cars once again come together at the Manor Hotel for the annual Turner gathering in Jack Turners Home town of Crickhowell in South Wales. The weather proved excellent for owners heading to the Rally with their cars and for the many enthusiasts who came togeher on the day to enjoy the collection of cars on show at the scenic Manor Hotel located in the Black Mountain range of Abergavenny .

In total 10 examples of Jack Turners fine sports cars were on display, many of which were driven to and from the event by the owners on the day. A great number of other cars were also represented by their owners , too many to list individually but many of whom are currently either planning or actively undertaking restorations of their Turner cars. A Special mention goes to Ken Robbins who was prevented from attending due to a mechanical problem en-route with his Turner 950S.

The Highlight of the afternoon as each year was the arrival of Jack Turner, who once again walked the length of the car park inspecting each car on display, and exchanging technical advice and stories of the days of Turner production with the assembled visitors.

The Crickhowell Turner rally was certainly a great success again this year, and I would like to express my thanks to all who attended on the day for helping to make the event so enjoyable, Special praise also to all those who bought along their Turner cars for display as without owners making this effort the Rally would not be able to continue to thrive and provide such enjoyment to us all. Also a big Thank You from all of us to Jack Turner for joining us at the rally again this year and making the day all the more special for us.
