Quick heads up that the advised latest date for putting your name on the list to come with us to the rally is this coming saturday, 24th June, so if your name is not above please add it asap.

If you are camping dont forget all pre booked camping must be booked via the link above by 30th june so you get the reduced rate and save yourself £6 per night.
