Again, feedback from previous show’s was that it was greatly enjoyed, and we thank you all for attending. The 2023 show is organised for the 39th year and we hope once again it will be as enthusiastically attended by both exhibitors and the public as always.

Again, this year we are issuing forms predominately by e-mail, which accounts for about 70%, and by post. In addition, you can down load forms direct from our website as well as pictures of previous years. To be able to provide forms via e-mail and from our website helps greatly to reduce our costs – if you have an e-mail address that works please let us use it.

The format of the Rally will be similar to last year for both cars and motorcycles. Please note that a custom car/motorcycle is a passenger vehicle/motor cycle that has been substantially modified in either of the following two ways:

  1. altered to improve its performance, often by altering or replacing the engine and transmission
  2. made into a personal “styling” statement, making it look unlike that delivered from the factory.

There will be TROPHIES AND PRIZES FOR ALL CATEGORIES OF VEHICLES ON DISPLAY, as well as arena events, country crafts stalls, auto- jumble, boot fair stalls, food outlets and side show attractions. There will again be the raffle for the Barrow-of-BoozeThe auto-jumble and the car club exhibits will again be in a dedicated paddock to provide more space. 

I do hope that again you will be able to join us with your vehicles, exhibits and/or stalls.. Please let your like-minded friends know about the rally date and the extended cut off for entries, in case we have been unable to contact them.

Please note that for this year and possibly beyond, we will be sending out your coloured entry cards, with class and number, by return in your pre-paid envelope. This will confirm receipt of your entry form and registration fee. Your programme will be given to you on the day when your entry card is shown upon arrival.

Appledore Recreation Ground Management Committee, (a non-profit making charity), is again staging the event. We request a registration fee to support the Rally as costs continue to spiral and the charge is  £8 per vehicle entrant, with a donation for motorcycles, if sent with your application form and received by 1St June. (Your green card entrant numbers must be displayed to allow one car, two occupants, a plaque as well as inclusion in the programme). Cheques made payable to the above Committee. For those who have returned their forms, but not pre-booked by the 1st June, their entry will not be shown in the programme. For those who have registered and omitted to enclose their entry fee of £8 per entrant or would like to just join us on the day, a fee of £10 per entrant will be requested upon arrival. (Red card entrant numbers must be displayed).
