ELVA JUBILEE, 1955-2005
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the founding of Elva Cars

 

MALLORY PARK
50th Birthday Celebration

 
 
  Sunday 22nd May 2005 will be enthusiastically remembered as a wonderful ELVA celebration by the many who attended.

The weather was kind, the camaraderie was unique and the racing superb. An amazing collection of Formula Juniors built by ELVA roared around the tight but fast circuit, with just one interloper being the Moorland that ran with the earliest Juniors in the first race back in the late fifties.

This time it was a convincing win by Martin Walford in a ‘200’ series car which was much applauded, and later the sports racers including some determined Courier drivers, came out to pound around the narrow track with a fine win by Simon Hadfield in the Mk.8, although he had the David Brown owned Mk.7S snapping at his heels for much of the time.

 
 


Most importantly there were no serious ‘off’ moments and everyone had a great time on and off the track. The paddock was buzzing with ELVA talk and it was so impressive to see so many cars built by ELVA grouped together, probably the best ever for us here in the UK. There were owners old and new, and much information help and advice was shared and compared. Wonderful! A great credit to all involved and hopefully the special Mallory T-shirts will now be worn in many local pubs with pride.

‘Father’ Frank would have been delighted or in his words “chuffed to bits!”
