Thanks to the efforts of our 2000 Larkspeed League competitors, the Armstrong Massey Rally 2001 is a round of the Larkspeed League. The usual prize money is on offer in 2001, with the Armstrong Massey Rally doubling the prize fund from Larkspeed if we end up in the top ten.

58th JulyBeverleySingle Venue Stage RallyLeconfield
Our own Armstrong Massey Rally saw us field a full team of five crews for the league, and this paid off, as we were easily the highest scoring club on the event. The best scoring crew of the day were Ian Joel/Graham Wood, who came 3rd in class D out of 34, and scored 101.2 points. They were closely followed by Dave Twilton/Richard Vincent who were 3rd out of 25, and scored 98 points. Our third scoring crew were Andy Rowe/Neil Holland, 4th out of 25, and scoring 94 points. The two non-scoring crews were not far behind either, with Gerry Killmurray/Lorne Fraser 6th out of 32, with 91.3 points, and Andy Carter/Tim Rodgers 5th out of 25, on 90 points. The effect of this amazing score was to catapult us from 9th to 4th overall in the league.

Following two stage rallies with multiple entries, it was back to Howard Everingham's lone effort again for this autotest.

The crews of Paul Hutchings/Peter Quinlan and Ian Kirk/Dave Lowson failed to finish, and scored 5 points each. This made us 5th club on the event, and moved us back up two places to fourth overall.
