Event description

Description

The East Riding Engine Club was formed in 1989 by a group of steam & vintage machinery enthusiasts with the aim of promoting and organising the annual Driffield Steam and Vintage Rally. Over the years the club has gone from strength to strength running a very successful and popular event and in so doing has raised many thousands of pounds for local charities. This year’s Rally will be the 30th organised by the Club.

To celebrate this milestone, the Club will be adding some special exhibits to the usual impressive line-up of vintage transport, machinery and other attractions that the Rally is well known for. There will be something for everyone including a wealth of vintage vehicles, fairground rides, vintage working, steam organs, trade stands, crafts and a model exhibition.

One of the new exhibits is the first working appearance of a Bristol Hercules, 14 cylinder, radial engine from an early 1950s Vickers Varsity twin engined military training aeroplane. This example is the final, 1750 horsepower, development of the Hercules engine and will provide an exciting sight and sound for both the average rallygoer as well as the connoisseur. ​

Saturday Evening will host the Vintage Road Run into Driffield at 6pm. This is always a popular part of the weekend and draws in huge crowds. Traction Engines, Showman's Engines, Road Rollers, Tractors, Cars, Steam Cars, Motor Bikes, Lorries, and Miniature Steam Engines all parade into the town centre and park up for spectators to view up close. This is a fantastic free show with a street collection for Yorkshire Cancer Research which is always very well supported.

A fantastic day out for all the family.
