More About The 1948 Alpine Rally HRG Car

Recently I got some additional information about the HRG cars from Peter Davis of England.  He and his Dad owned the HRG car that had registration number JLA 13 which I had shown in a previous post.  This was one of the HRG cars that competed in the 1948 Alpine Rally.  This car is shown below competing in that rally.

Peter sent some pictures of the car that he took outside “Rothampstead Manor” which is an experimental agricultural establishment in Harpenden, a town where he used to live (Roughly 24 miles north of London).

The picture below is a slightly different view of the same HRG car in front of the same building.

The photo below shows three of the successful HRG cars taken at the 1948 Alpine Rally.  Note the HRG 1500 car in the middle of the photo.  It has registration number KHN 600.

Peter Davis also sent me the more recent photo below of the same HRG 1500 shown above.  That car, with the red axle,  was photographed at a Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb event in Worcestershire.

I want to thank Peter Davis for sending me these additional photos of some HRG cars and for putting these photos in a car rally context.

    • Hi Ivano,
      Unfortunately your photos got lost from your comment. I will contact you directly and you can send your images of this car to me and I will post them on this website. I look forward to seeing the photos of your HRG.
