2018 Branch Rally Sunday May 13th

Countdown to the Barnsley Branch rally


Another successful rally held at the new venue of Graves Park Animal Farm in 2017, a mainly fine day weather wise with over 70 cars in attendance. Thanks to all those who attended. Photographs of most of the cars on display at the 2017 rally & previous rallies can be found on the Potteries Branch website – many thanks to Cam Shaw.

After many favourable comments about the 2017 rally, it has been decided to use the same venue for 2018 – Sunday May 13th, 2018 from 10am is the date for your diaries. We are hoping to have a few more attractions this year, maybe a few more cars & some classic motor cycles.  Keep watching this page, we will update it as things develop.

Rally entry fee is £5 per classic car & £4 per classic motor cycle.   You can print off the Rally entry form below,   return with fee (cheques made payable to Barnsley Branch MMOC please) & a stamped self addressed envelope to Graham Wickham.


Closing date for pre-booked cars is May 4th, 2018. A Rally memento will be given to pre-booked cars / bikes only.
