Well done Adge & Mark on your superb achievement, from all at Lancashire and District Subaru Owners Club September 2007 LADS took part in the inaugural Rally Show at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire Taking part with many other regional and one make car clubs, LADS were again victorious taking the prize for Best One Make Car Club in show. Amongst the assembled club cars the stand also featured a special LADS tribute to Colin McRae. LADS were honoured and no doubt (sadly) proud to have the great man's iconic WRC Impreza centre stage on the LADS club stand. A very poignant moment for many that were there and our thanks go to all at Prodrive for allowing us this unique moment.

As an integral part of the day we held our own LADS show'n'shine competition, the winner being chosen by the ladies from Macmillan. LADS member Dan Henson, aka ScoobyDan, took the trophy with his meticulously presented WR1. Dan received his Trophy from 2007 Flag Market show organiser, Gary Ibbitson (Fireman Sam) This is always a stunningly presented car and is testament to what can be achieved with the amount of personal “elbow grease” that Dan puts into his pride and joy. A credit to ScoobyDan's passion and efforts. I'm sure you will agree it is a stunningly presented car and a well deserved result. Well done Dan June 2005 One of the most important shows LADS took part in has be the 2005 "The Northern Big One", or NBO for short.
