Prizes were handed out by West of England Traffic Commissioner, Kevin Rooney, who is an enthusiastic supporter of the rally.

Familiar players welcomed new names to the event – including A&P Travel, Lothian and Exclusive Holidays.

A nice touch from Jay & Kay was the entry of its VDL Futura FHD2 named in memory of the late Alan White of Moseley South.

The trade area was well-supported, with the presence of ADL, Arriva Bus & Coach, BASE, EVM, EvoBus UK, Irizar UK, Minis to Midis, Moseley, Pelican Bus & Coach and Volvo. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
