Once again, it’s event time. 3 August 2014 is the 21st BMC/BL Rally and, hopefully, the weather will be a little bit better than last year. The event is held at Ferry Meadows, Nene Park in Peterborough and features a mouth-watering gathering of vehicles from our historic British Motor Corporation and subsequent brands.
You can either bring your own car along or wander in and bask in the Cambridgeshire sunshine. There’s all things for everyone on show and for the deep pockets – an auto jumble to locate that rare rover radiator or hard to find fusebox. Food and drink will be available, competitions, prizes, raffles – even camping space is provided at a small cost. Vehicle entry is charged at £10.00 on the day or £5.00 if you pre-book in advance.
This year AROnline will be manning a small display if there is enough interest and our new Editor, Craig Cheetham, and myself will be on site to meet, greet and say hello while displaying our own motley collection of class. To find out more about the show itself or for pre-booking your car entry CLICK HERE and for details about registering your interest in the AROnline pitch at the show, see the post in the AROnline forum and let Rob Copson know your intentions.
So regardless of being mad about Montego’s or dotty on Devons, the rally is a great day out for everyone – come along and enjoy. It’s easy to find too – it’s a short hop from the A1/A605 junction or the A1260 Nene Parkway.
