About the Rally

From the committee

We are extremely sorry to have to announce that due to lack of committee members we are unable to stage a 2024 rally.
We have worked extremely hard over the years to try and improve our show year on year and I think we’ve raised the bar fairly high, but in doing this the amount of work involved is vast and thousands of hours go into organising and delivering a safe but fun show and it can take its toll on people.

Our plan is to use the break year to recruit some new committee members and come back in 2025 as enthusiastic and committed as ever.

So keep those boiler tickets in date keep those restorations going and make the most of the other great rally’s that are still
Going ahead next year


We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the years!

See you soon
