Your chance to wallow in passenger transport nostalgia takes place on Sunday 17 September at Donington Park with the advent of the 45th Showbus rally. So far as bus events and rallies matter, Showbus is the big one. Literally hundreds of vehicles from vintage to modern descend upon one of England’s better known racing circuits. For those avid fans of the bigger classmates of BL or Leyland Motors, it’s the place to be.
So, if you just love an Atlantean, go nuts for the National, dream about Dennis Dominators or simply want to admire a good few pairs of Bristols to name but a few the gates open at 10.00am sharp. Entry charge is £15 but for this you get to see everything that matters in the bus and coach industry, be it historic, present and future on public display.
Also, there’s an impressive array of trade stands, exhibitions, autojumbles and catering facilities to whet the appetite for fans of public transport. Click on the highlighted link above to find out more and how to get there – it’s promising to be a really good event that’s now in its 45th year.
