The Fraserburgh Vintage Vehicle Rally is being held at the Leisure Centre in Fraserburgh on Sunday 1st June 2008. This year the rally will be hosting the Scottish Vintage Vehicle Federations event the "Champion of Champions" events too. The COC is held as part of a different rally each year and invites class winners at 2007 rallies to enter and compete for the COC in their respective classes. In addition there is a a prize for the Supreme Champion of Champions from all the vehicle classes.

In addition the event will be celebrating 100 years of the model T Ford. The event is organised by James Gray who is a director of the refrigerator trailer manufacturers Gray & Adams and is an extremely well organised event. Hosting the CoC promises to bring a good selection of vehicles from all over Scotland up to the Buchan coast on Sunday 1st June.

I'll be going along as usual and this year I have my 1951 Farmall Cub and 1948 Ransomes MG 2 booked in.

Within the leisure centre there are numerous stalls and craft fair type of stall to keep any females going along interested ;D ;D

Looking at the weather forecast it says it will be cloudy in Fraserburgh on Sunday. Never mind that will do me as long as it not raining... plays havoc with the shiny brass bits ;D ;D

Mind you father is obsessed with cleaning brasses so it saves me doing it. I'm the washer and polisher

The overall Champion of Champions in the tractor class went to this 1926 Fordson Model F from Ian Brown ( a Ford tractor dealership man) from Ceres.


In the rally class awards the winners of the class awards in the Tractor up to 1955 section were

First place a 1953 Field Marshall FSV 80 from Martin Stewart of Maud ( Mad Martin )


2nd a 1950 Ferguson TE20 with ferguson trailer from Mike Robertson of Brechin


And 3rd place me myself I with my 1951 Farmall Cub CSJ 249

Looks like a good day out for all and a nice varied selection of machines - especially the Claas combine - I think it is a Matador Giant ???

Yes it was a nice day out Colm. Always a slight wind and smell of fish factories in Fraserburgh though ;D ;D. I didn't actually have a close inspection of the combine but it looked in good original condition. In fact I think the owner is a Gray & Adams employee and also has a collection of Zetor tractor's. There was an article probably in Classic Tractor some time back about his Zetors.
