As planned, the 50th anniversary was celebrated at the Castle Combe Rallyday on Saturday 23rd September 2017, with an exceptional display of both Davrians and Darrians. Further information and photos from the day will be published on this site in the near future (with apologies for the considerable delay in their appearance on this site).

Charles Barter reunited with the Solo Stiletto (2011)

Charles Barter met up with Tony Hansford, current owner of the Solo Stiletto, during the Classic Car Show at the NEC. Tony has recently restored the car to its original Golden Springs Watercress Company livery and Charles was clearly very impressed with the attention to detail.

Davrian Revived!

At the Imp Club National Weekend in August 2007, Tim Duffee announced plans to build an updated version of the Davrian Mk6 and John Pugsley, who attended the 40th anniversary celebration, has placed an order for the first of these cars with a view to making a return to motorsport.

Further information will be provided when it becomes available.

Davrian Dav-Tec wins at Goodwood (2015)

Dean Thomas and co-driver Rich Knowlton took the overall honours at the Sherrards Resourcing Southdown Stages Rally, which took place at the Goodwood Circuit on Saturday 15th February. In the Honda-powered Davrian Dav-Tec, they beat runners-up Paul King and Alicia Miles in their Mk2 Escort by a total of six seconds. In previous seasons, the car has suffered from an ongoing problem with overheating but this has now been resolved and the only issue during the day related to the need to understand the characteristics  of a newly installed differential.

Welsh Motoring Festival (2019)

Four Darrians and two Davrians attended the Welsh Motoring Festival which took place on Sunday 16th June at the Celtic Manor Resort.

Each of the cars had an opportunity for at least two runs on the special stage. Unfortunately the yellow Davrian pictured in the lineup, sustained some damage on one of its runs when it struck a boulder.
