The RAC was known as the Royal Automobile Club

The Royal Automobile Club, originally operated a "get home disc" for a guinea a year subscription. It was classed as the "Freedom Of The Road".

The first RAC rally was in 1932, where it encouraged drivers to take part with the slogan "Enter The Rally And See Britain". Of course this event became huge, before restricting itself to Wales only.

Patrolmen

During the 1950s it was normal for the RAC patrolmen to salute you as you passed, a tradition that eventually became redundant.

Many women where then employed and called "Patrolettes", where their main function was to recruit new members.

In the 1950s, the RAC "Get You Home" service was the largest in the world.

More Information

And if you find yourself broken down anywhere (which, based on our last MOT, is sure to happen to us quite soon) you can even use the app to join and call the RAC, so that they can come out and rescue you. This feature alone was enough to make us quickly install the app on our Nokia Lumia 800.
