The SGC Printing Harry Flatters Rally is a rally born not too many years
ago in 1985, created originally by Martin Leonard and Stuart Cardell and
sponsored from the beginning by SGC Printing of Merthyr Tydfil. The first
rally was won by Bob Fowden in his big Rover SD1 with the then Rallies
Editor of Motoring News, David Williams aka DKW taking his first win in the
co drivers seat!

Army politics meant the rally took a break from 1990 ‘til 1995 but burst
back onto the scene and grew once again when it linked with the Historic
Rally Car Register to become part of their highly successful historic
series. Restricted use of roads has been a feature of events on Epynt over
the years but of late the shackles have slowly come off and clubs now enjoy
better access than they have done for years.
