Karen and Dave Paul planned and sponsored the perfect summer classic event: Perfect weather, an excellent rallye route through Upper Bucks County, and a fine picnic at their home in Flemington, New Jersey.
A road rallye for drivers and driver cars only, six MGs and one TR6 accepted the challenge of wheeling from Ottsville, Pennsylvania, through beautiful Bucks County, crossing the Delaware River at Frenchtown, New Jersey and winding their way through Hunterdon County, New Jersey to Flemington.
The driving was a short, joyous challenge, for sure, and adding to the fun was a contest of answering 30 questions along the way, which served as the main scoring criteria for the event with time and mileage being used in the event of a tie. Of course there was a tie to be broken in order to determine the winners.
The finale for the day was a picnic at the Paul’s, which included cooling off visits to Dave Paul’s “Garage-Mahal” where plenty of good food and drink were consumed.
The drivers and navigators taking part in this year’s annual Hornsby Rallye were:
Graham and Susie Gill MGTD, Garth and Susan Gill MG 1100, Tom and Jamiee Rippert MGTD, Dick and Sandy Suffredini MGTD, Dave and Erin Alderfer MGB, Adam and Eva Ilnicki MGTD, non-member Bob Ruby TR6, and Dave and Karen Paul MGA.

• Third place: Dave and Erin Alderfer
• Second place: Graham and Susie Gill
• First place and winner of The Hornsby Cup: Tom and Jaimee Rippert
