Would have done - was in the country but we had some family stuff to do so I couldn't make it.
Unfortunately only held on the one day (Sunday) and not on the Saturday as well or else I would have been there.

As I am usually in Biggar on the Saturday, I usually go along for a preview - though not many arrive until the Sunday, but it does give the opportunity for some unhindered photos and the chance to chat with the owners.
Quite a few exhibitors camp in the field next to the showground.

I was there again with my TK the weather stayed fair all day with no rain.There was a fantastic turnout of commercials to the point they really need to look at allocating a larger area for them.

Yes, I agree.
What started out as a rally for Albions (Albion Motors was founded by a farmer from Biggar. The archives of Albion Motors are stored here in Biggar, where an annual vintage motor rally commemorates their achievements.) has evolved into an 'all makes' and cars.
