The Historic Vehicle Rally took place on Sunday, August 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 participants had the opportunity to have their vehicle photographed next to a Tiger Moth! – see the Rally Route Map here.

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!

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 local charities.

We would like to thank the patrons, sponsors, volunteer helpers and the many members of the public who turned out to make the event such a success.

Prize Winners

The trophies were presented by Councillor Jon Andrews, Mayor of Sherborne – for a full list of the Trophies click here.

Master Class Qualifiers

The Master Class was introduced in 2012 to give a wider selection of cars a greater chance to win the various class prizes. Under this arrangement, the motorcar entrants that win 1st prize in their class are automatically elevated to a separate ‘Master Class’. Therefore any car that has won their respective class, from veteran to Classic 60s, in the previous two years are assigned to the Master Class in the next year, i.e. 2018 and 2019 class winners  are assigned to the 2020 Master Class. The following entries have qualified for the 2020 Master Class:
