Organisers of a popular West Norfolk vintage rally have hailed this year’s event as their biggest yet.

Thousands of people enjoyed all the sights and sounds of the 43rd annual Stradsett Park rally during the bank holiday weekend.

With attractions including steam-powered vehicles, classic cars and even a Wall of Death demonstration, the show covered 90 acres of the estate, the largest area in its history.

And the rally’s organiser, Gordon Carson, feels the event has now firmly re-established itself on the calendar, having been put in down two years ago because of rising costs.

He said: “Ever since we had the problem, the estate has been brilliant. Alfred (Bagge) and his wife bend over backwards to support us.

“To have all the things we have on their estate is phenomenal.”

As in previous years, the rally is expected to raise many thousands of pounds for charity.

Half of the proceeds will go to the East Anglian Air Ambulance, with the rest being shared by five other causes. The exact total generated during the weekend is still being worked out.

Mr Carson said the rally had been a “fantastic” weekend, adding: “It’s great the local people really support us.”
