LETTER - ‘Does anybody from Diss remember the Pancake Rally?’
Would any readers remember the Pancake Rally organised by the Sporting Car Club of Norfolk starting from Diss?
Competitors would leave the car park on Park Road opposite the Ford garage, then WD Chitty Ltd.
The 1960 event, which started later in the year than usual, left Diss at 10am on Sunday, March 20 1960 following a route of 160 miles finishing at 5pm at the Kings Head in Mere Street.
Competitors then went for a meal at Wren’s Restaurant. The 1963 rally also started from the same venue, so was this an annual event?
