While we Yanks tow trailers, the British enjoy "caravanning" wherein the hobby's participants travel to twee camp sites in search of peace and quiet and perhaps a little socializing. Top Gear presenters never miss an opportunity to heap scorn on caravanners, but they likely never saw a caravan rally.
The British Pathé website- that repository of all things properly British - has clip of a caravan rally that took place in 1960. Having never seen a rally, I have to admit I was seriously impressed with the events that the planners put forth and the gusto with which the participants approached them. I am certainly captivated with the tow cars in the film with Jaguars, Rovers, Humbers and even a punching-above-its-weight-class Mini. Hot laps, smoking panic stops and a tight slalom are featured prominently.
Check out the clip and see if you can identify the estate car about three quarters of the way through the film for me.
