VBOA National Rally, Billing 2011 Ian Coomber, VBOA Chairman
The Big One! Returning for the 29th running over the earlier weekend of July 2nd and 3rd, it gets better every year. But the basic formula of a chill weekend in the company of your own club members and those of over 30 other clubs catering for all models of Vauxhall plus Opels and Bedfords has not changed.
Featuring the best Vauxhall autojumble in the World and over 2000 cars, vans and trucks forming an unforgettable display in the hugely improved surroundings of Billing Aquadrome.
On Sunday we have club displays in the parade ring and the Chairman's Cup competition for the best car in Show.
Miss it at your peril!
For those camping on site our event is defined as Friday night (July 1st), Saturday night and Sunday up to the close of the show. Participants may arrange extra nights before and after these dates at normal park camping rates.
VBOA affiliated club members who pre book will enjoy a discounted rally rate of £15 per vehicle per night for non electric pitches for the event dates as defined above. Therefore pre booked participation on the event dates will cost £30. They will also receive further benefits as described below. There is no minimum night booking period. Members can pre-book for 1 night and get the rally rate. All pitches are for one vehicle and a maximum of four people.
Pre-book electric hook ups will be charged at an extra £6 per night but please note that very few of these are available on the designated show fields.
For non-pre booked camping arrivals or for camping on days before and after the event as defined above, the normal park camping rate of £20 per vehicle per 24 hour period for non electric pitches and £26 with electric hook-up will apply.
Extra vehicles will be charged at a flat £10 for the duration of the event as described above.
Day visitors will be charged £10 per day per vehicle and up to four people and do not have to pre book.
Billing will give VBOA club members a 20% discount on any static holiday home bookings for the event - a 7 night minimum booking applies.
Pre booked attendees will be directed to two dedicated “fast track” entry lanes and pick up their passes and VBOA stickers at the gate houses.
The “welcome pack” will include a park map with the VBOA Club stand locations and an invitation to a Friday night VBOA welcome event in the leisure centre and lakeside restaurant facility with drinks voucher and the offer of a £5 meal deal.
Those pre booking leisure passes for the new leisure complex will also enjoy a 50% discount - swimming will only be £2.50 per person and not the usual £5 per visit.
