We prepared two Alvis cars for the ERA Blue Train Rally this year – a 1934 Speed 20 SB Vanden plas sports tourer (car 10) and a 1938 Speed 25 Charlesworth Drophead Coupe (car 26).
The Blue Train Challenge is a 5 day event crossing France from Deauville to Cannes via Fontevraud, Vichy, Lyon, L’Isle-sur-la-Sorgue with a mixture of touring and regularity and time control sections . Click here to read the rally reports and view the official photos: blue train rally reports .
Both cars performed well, with the Speed 20 winning 1st in class and the Speed 25 winning the Concourse d’Elegance trophy. Here they are returning to Earley Engineering this week for cleaning and servicing.
