Fol­low­ing on from last is­sue’s up­date re­gard­ing the on­go­ing dif­fi­cul­ties the Vaux­hall Bed­ford Opel As­so­ci­a­tion (VBOA) has ex­pe­ri­enced in find­ing a new home for its National Rally (after the de­ci­sion by man­agers at Billing Aquadrome to can­cel all car shows at their pop­u­lar Northamp­ton­shire hol­i­day park), we’re pleased to be able to re­port that the 2017 VBOA National Rally will take place at the brand new Mar­ket Harborough Show­ground across the week­end of 8th and 9th July. We can’t wait!

The new venue is based within a mile of the East Mid­lands town of Mar­ket Harborough, and we’re told that its first VBOA gath­er­ing will fea­ture a large au­to­jum­ble with deal­ers from the UK and over­seas. Of course, there will also be the wel­come mix of pre-war to mod­ern-day Griffins that we’ve come to ex­pect from the pop­u­lar static show, as well as fast food stalls, a chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity area, and the much hyped ‘Chair­man’s Cup’ com­pe­ti­tion.

En­try for day vis­i­tors is capped at a ten­ner per ve­hi­cle for up to four peo­ple, with ad­di­tional bod­ies re­quired to pay a fiver each. Kids un­der five years of age qual­ify for free en­try. For those that mis­be­have, the lo­cal prison also of­fers free en­try (and an ex­tended stay).

As has been the case with Billing-based shows, camp­ing will be al­lowed at Mar­ket Harborough Show­ground. All the de­tails can be found at the VBOA web­site: www.vboa.org.uk
