Classic and Vintage Vehicle Rally

24 May 2020

An outstanding display of vehicles from the last century

The Vintage and Classic Vehicle Rally has evolved from the Steam Festival Days held at Pecorama in the mid 1990s.  It is now a standalone event which has grown in popularity over the years, with vehicles travelling from as far afield as Gloucestershire, Glamorgan, Hampshire and Cornwall to take part.

It’s always a jolly and colourful affair, with deck chairs, sun brollies and picnic baskets scattered among the cherished vehicles.  Much chatter and camera clicking takes place, as both visitors and participants alike inspect and admire the host of vehicles displayed in the Pecorama car parks.

Once again we anticipate this being hugely successful event and a potential need to limit numbers, we therefore suggest exhibitors register as soon as possible.
