The Rally of the Giants

Blenheim Palace     

Saturday and Sunday 25 & 26th July 2015

This year the Rally of the Giants is 50 and to celebrate the club is throwing a birthday party and Show & Shine at Blenheim Palace over the weekend of 25th and 26th July 2015. Pre50AAC club members, non-members and American Car and Hotrod Clubs are invited to share this special occasion with us.

The festivities start on Saturday afternoon with an American Car Cruise from Blenheim Palace to the Bicester Heritage Centre. The Bicester Heritage Centre is the UK’s first park for the restoration, storage and enjoyment of vintage and classic cars, motorcycles and aeroplanes. It is set in 348 acres of an historic RAF and USAF airbase and provides an authentic period setting for all to immerse themselves in the age of classic vehicles.

Then its back to Blenheim Place for the clubs birthday party on Saturday evening. The venue for the party and the Show & Shine on Sunday is the Sheep Walk field which has the impressive frontage of Blenheim Palace as its backdrop. Park your cars up in the show field meet old friends and make new ones.

The party starts at 6.30pm. Included in the ticket price is American themed food and drink (alcohol included) Food is a smoke house bbq with menu delights such as pulled pork, Texas beef, burgers, ribs, chilli dogs, etc. Music is provided by The Polka Dots. They are a fantastic trio of sassy female singers performing a collection of swing and big band songs from the 40’s and 50’s.

Following on from the party, Sunday is The Rally of the Giants, The UK’s number one classic American car show,.  The Pre50AAC has produced a 100 page collector’s book illustrated with great photos and articles which tells the story of the first fifty years of the Pre50AAC and the Rally of the Giants.
