Larkspeed League 1999
Thanks to the efforts of our 1998 Larkspeed League competitors, the Armstrong Massey Rally 1999 was a round of the Larkspeed League. The usual prize money was on offer in 1999, with the Armstrong Massey Rally doubling the prize fund from Larkspeed when we ended up in the top ten.
