West Bergholt Historic Vehicle Rally 2008

Once again, I thought that this years Rally was very well represented by all sections, in fact some of the later Commercials and big trucks had difficulty finding somewhere to park. Once again the number of Engines was down on last year.

The weather was good all weekend and whilst there was a reasonable number of stalls I think not quite so many as last year.

As last Year there was some excellent entertainment in the main ring especially on Sunday.

This years Parachute Freefall display was given again by The Princess of Wales Royal Regiment  Team who put on a very spectacular display, with all the Paras landing  on or very near the cross.

All this and some Country and Western entertainment on Saturday night made for an excellent Rally.

See below for some of the engines and of other sights around the Rally field.
