Pedal & Drive Car Rally

Owner of a well loved old car?  Time to book your place for this year’s Pedal & Drive Tour & Rally for Vintage & Classic Cars on Saturday, 11th September 2021.

It is a rally with a difference!  The owners of five of Suffolk’s most beautiful and important historic houses have very kindly agreed to open their gates and to act as the assembly and start points: houses like Euston Hall near Thetford, home to the Dukes of Grafton for over 350 years,  Heveningham Hall near Halesworth, the greatest private country house in Suffolk and Crowe Hall, set in beautiful grounds south of Ipswich. From there you will set out on a tour across Suffolk taking in lovely countryside and remarkable churches as you tackle a fiendish church quiz.  And finally end up for teas and prizes at the grand rally where the five teams of cars will all gather together under the lea of the great tower of St Peter & St Paul, Lavenham.

The photos below give you a flavour of the fun we had last year when despite the pandemic over a hundred cars of every conceivable vintage from pre-war Rolls-Royces to Triumphs from the Beatles’ era turned out. 

If you are the owner of a well loved old car we imagine your car is dying to get out on the open road after these months of lockdown!  We recommend you send in your entry form soonest as the number of places at some of these country houses are strictly limited and with talk continuing of events being cancelled, we anticipate there may well be a rush to sign up.

Entry Form & joining instructions here. All are welcome.
