Revving engines at the ready

This year’s Woodvale International Rally will be bigger and better than ever before, say organisers,

Now in its 39th year and taking place next weekend, on August 7 and 8, new attractions include the original ‘Wall of Death Tour’, the West Lancs. Dog Display Team and inflatable orbs – that's balls to you, on water and land.

This year also marks the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, which will be commemorated with a special show. The full sized replica Spitfire will be on display on the Saturday and the model aircraft and military sections have also increased the size of their displays.

This year also sees a new craft tent and food marquee and more than 200 trade stands.

The rally offers visitors a spectacle of events and activities from its renowned Model Aero Show and Vintage and Classic Car Rally to a colourful kite festival, Morris dancing, country market, auto jumble and craft fair. There will also be live music and other entertainment.

Other highlights include motorcycles and military vehicles, model aircraft display, the ex-Vietnam Huey helicopter, Rolls Royce, Merlin and Griffin Aero Engine Display, model car racing, model boats and railways, stationary engines and a car restoration workshop. There will also be a military vehicle parade on both days at 12.30.

For the younger members of the family the free attractions include The Crazy Bears, land trains around the site and the Paper Wizard, who creates origami animals and birds. There is also a popular fairground and miniature train rides.

Each day the large model aircraft display will finish with the recreation of the famous Dambuster raid with special effects and Lancaster bombers.
