This event is in the One Off Event category though it was, in fact, a regular event on Madeira Drive until a few years ago when it moved to Peterborough. It was really a busman's / buswoman's holiday, an industry event during which coaches were shown and judged, coach builders put on exhibitions, drivers got the chance to enter a competition over a short course, and there was a gala dinner and dance at one of the seafront hotels.
As you can imagine, the event in the Drive was popular with bus and coach spotters.
The photographs below were taken in the years 2006 to 2009.
In 2016 the Rally moves to Blackpool.
