The Double LL rally in 2006

Looking back here at The Double LL Rally which was then held in Horndean, I seem to remember that alot of these rallies over the years in Horndean  were wet or very wet. But as you can see from some of the double llers we all kept smiling..

The Double LL Rally is now held at Hollycombe Steam Fariground Collection in Liphook Hampshire and this year the date will be 8th & 9th June, for more information please contact Dave Rudwick Show and Autojumble organiser through the whos who page of this website.
