Glasgow, 100 years on…

They left Monaco on Monday, just as they had come, discreetly, at the wheel of around twenty classic cars, including an antique MG in perfect condition which had competed in the Monte Carlo Rally at the very beginning of the last century.

They are all British, and most of them Scottish friends of June and Douglas Anderson, “a group of friends who are very attached to Monaco”, explains Claude Plasseraud, a member of the ACM Organising Committee.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first start of a Concentration Route for a Rallye Monte Carlo in Glasgow, the friends set off last Wednesday. Just after the official start of the five competitors from Glasgow entered in the 26th Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique. And just like them, they travelled more than 2,000 km to reach the Principality on Saturday, in time to take part in a special gala evening at the ACM, organized for them.

“The gala evening was very nice, they all wore bow ties and they all received medals commemorating their journey,” adds Claude Plasseraud, an ACM member since the 90s. There were only 4 withdrawals en route, out of an initial field of 25, which shows the quality of the work done on these old cars by their passionate owners. When they get back to Glasgow at the end of the week, these great enthusiasts will have added another 4,000 km to the odometer of their classic car. All due respect.
