The 13th National Hillman Rally - Ballarat - 25th - 28th March 2016

Another National Hillman Rally has come and gone, and what a good rally it was. The weather was mild by Ballarat standards, given it is the coldest city in Victoria. 

There was an excellent attendance of 102 participants travelling in 46 Hillmans, 2 Commers, 4 other Rootes vehicles and 6 moderns. Rally headquarters, the Belltower Motor Inn was comfortable with friendly and helpful staff, the runs were well planned and interesting; and the two dinners were held at entertaining locations with first class food. The band on Sunday night played everything from Edith Piaf to Abba and The Beatles. 

Our thanks go to the rally committee of the Rootes Group Car Club Victoria for a job well done. In 2018 we are off to Victor Harbor and, for the first time in many years, the rally will not be held during Easter. The dates for the 2018 rally are Friday 27th to Monday 30th April 2018.

A big thanks to Jim Wilson, Walter Anker and Paul Johnson for the wonderful photographs taken during the rally.
