The Winner of Best in Show

FSPG Virtual Rally May 2020 And the winners are:

As the 2020 rally calendar was decimated by the Coronavirus, it was felt by the Executive Committee that we should do something to bring the membership and other enthusiasts  together, we therefore hosted a totally online Virtual Fire Engine and Vintage Vehicle Show.

Held through Facebook groups over the late May bank Holiday weekend the rally gave people that chance to come together, from the comfort of their own houses, to show off their vehicles (or ones with a personal connection) and let off some steam.

In good old fashioned fire engine rally style, there was an exhibitors bar where copious amounts of alcohol was drunk fashioned from the front of a Dennis Rapier (on loan from TAFER - the organisers of the Preston Park Fire Engine Rally in Cleveland), there was ample fun to be had in and out of the arena, and there were prizes to be won, - the winners of each class are documented below.
We hope there wont be a need to repeat the first ever FSPG Virtual Rally, but it was held in great spirits and is certainly something that we can consider if the tough times ever return.

Stay Safe and we hope to see you at an event in person across the country soon.


All activities described / pictures have been taken well before Coronavirus lock down at shows across the country in previous years. At no point did anyone breach the lock down rules.

We were never together In a field at any stage of the weekend, contrary to popular belief!
