In 2017 the Registration Numbers Club

celebrates forty years of cherished registrations

The Registration Numbers Club was formed back in 1977 and held its inaugural rally at Harewood House near Leeds.

To celebrate the club’s 40th anniversary we returned to Yorkshire for our annual pre-rally dinner and rally which took place at the Mercure Leeds Parkway Hotel and at Temple Newsam House over the weekend of 15 / 16 July 2017.

40th anniversary pre-rally dinner  -  Saturday 15th July 2017


A record 40 members joined in the celebrations at the pre-rally dinner where an excellent four course meal was enjoyed by all. One of the original club founders, Alex Jackson, gave a brief insight into his own registrations after the dinner, followed by co-founder and retiring club Honorary Secretary, Steve Waldenberg, commenting on the club's future.

An anniversary cake, set in a display of foreign plates, was served to guests to enjoy over coffee.

40th anniversary rally  -  Sunday 16th July 2017

Sunday dawned bright, warm and sunny for our 40th anniversary rally and the field at Temple Newsam soon began to fill up with some superb vehicles, ably marshalled by club members Brian Damper, Dominic Chandler, Clifford Thoroughgood and Bernard Mansell.

Great registrations were in abundance and by noon there were almost 100 vehicles on display. The club operates a self voting system  at its rallies and voting cards were soon being returned to the rally control marquee for entering into the master results sheets.

The Lord Mayor of Leeds, Councillor Jane Dowson, attended the 40th anniversary rally and happily presented the various class awards. The Mayoral car of Leeds bears the registration U 1 and club member Gareth Hudson, son of the late Malcolm Hudson, joined us with the reverse plate 1 U.

 Thanks are due for all the assistance (you know who you are) given before, during and after the rally. Our rally marshalls speedily directed vehicles onto the rally site and made sure they were neatly displayed.

Brian and Wendy Mawson brought their excellent mini-marquee for us to use as the rally control centre, allowing retiring club Honorary Secretary, Steve Waldenberg (SIW 321) to keep everything in order.

Several prizes had been donated by our sponsor dealers and club members and our thanks are due to all who purchased tickets. By the end of the day we had raised over £170.00 to help with the expense of staging our event.

The cherished registration dealers shown on the left also helped us with sponsorship deals to cover some expenses.

Our thanks go to Pat Woodall, who unfortunately could not be present this year, for once again providing the Noel Woodall trophy in his memory. In recognition of 40 years outstanding service to the RNC, the trophy for 2017 was awarded to retiring Honorary Secretary, Steve Waldenberg.
