Well, it’s here again, folks. The BMC/BL Rally at Ferry Meadows, Peterborough on Sunday 7 August. As the show season slowly starts to wane, this epic gathering of all things British – from Austin to Wolseley – is a treat for those who regularly attend. And it’s a must-see for those who have yet to visit.
Set in superb surroundings, this show has only one theme: to celebrate our turbulent motor industry, from all the divisions of what was BMC to the latter-day MG Rover Group. Admission is £5 if pre-booked, or £9 if you just turn up on the day.
The autojumble on site is superb, catering for those looking for trim for a Triumph, or some mats for a Marina. Ferry Meadows is a short skip and hop from the A1(M) and this year’s event will hopefully make up for the cancellation of the Pride of Longbridge gathering which was reluctantly called off back in April due to snow.
AROnline has cobbled a small pitch where site fans could gather in one place to meet, greet and network at the past two Peterborough shows. However, after a top-level secret meeting, we have decided not to organise a pitch for this one. That’s not because of any lack of interest, but more down to our respective workloads being so hectic.
Keith and I will be there on the day, but only just simply to soak up the sun and share love for our once-mighty British Motor Corporation. If you spot us, don’t be shy… do say ‘hi’. The Project 416 will be gate-crashing onto the Rover 200 and 400 Owners Club stand for anyone who actually wants to see one of our project cars in the metal.
So there you have it, trust us it’s a great show with plenty to do and see for all ages. CLICK HERE for details of how to pre-book your car if you want to display it.
See you there?
