The 45th Sherborne Historic Vehicle Rally Delights Entrants and Visitors – This year’s event took place on Sunday, Aug 25th, 2019 under glorious blue skies. The 120 entrants started with a 40 mile rally around the local countryside and ended showcasing their fabulous vehicles to members of the public at The Courts at Sherborne School.
The rally included a brief stop at Henstridge Airfield, where many participants had their vehicle photographed next to a Tiger Moth!
This annual charitable event, which has been a mainstay of the town for 45 years, attracted vehicles from a wide era, including Veteran, Vintage, and Classic all the way up to modern thoroughbreds from the 80s and 90s. In addition to looking at the wonderful vehicles and talking to their owners, visitors were serenaded by the Sherborne Town band and able to try and guess the make and model of a crushed car. Many vehicle owners entered into the spirit of the event and dressed up for the occasion, wearing costumes appropriate to the age of their vehicles!
Knowledgeable judges awarded trophies to winners of the various classes of vehicle, but some of the most prized trophies were the winners of the ‘Most Desirable’ car and motorcycle, which were judged by the visiting public. The cups were presented by Councillor Jon Andrews, Mayor of Sherborne. The event raised £3,000, with the principal beneficiaries being the Sherborne Town Band and the SAYCC Tinney’s Youth Club, as well as other good causes.
