The Moffat Car Rally
Started in 1998, by the Scottish Rootes Enthusiasts,
the Moffat car rally has grown to become one of the biggest 2 day classic car
events in Scotland. Set in the beautiful Moffat hills, the rally
is an incredible place to both exhibit your cherished classic or
vintage motor car and is a wonderful visitor experience.
The rally accommodates 900 entries some of which
come hundreds of miles to participate. This 2 day event has a drive
through the Moffat hills on the Saturday which is a glorious sight
and Sunday is the main gathering in the Moffat showground, with a large display of classic cars, auto-jumble/trade stands and childrens entertainment.
The Rally continues to raise money for the Macmillan
Cancer Support and other cancer charities. Many of our families, friends
and fellow classic car enthusiasts are touched in one way or another
by cancer and this helps our major fundraising efforts for this
Classic car fans and many of the entrants will be travelling from Europe, some down from the Shetland Isles, many from Northern Ireland, Wales as well as Kent, Cornwall and Dorset to take part in this amazing 2 day event.
The fun kicks off with a road run (which 300 cars can participate in) to St. Mary's Loch, with the first cars leaving the town centre at midday in 15 minute intervals in groups of 60.
There will be a picnic stop at the Loch and the route will also take in Megget and Talla reservoirs. Motor bikes are a welcome part of the Moffat Classic Car Rally.
The Car Rally has been a fabulous connection with the town of Moffat. It appeals to enthusiasts, the businesses in the town and to the public that visit.
