Cambridge-Oxford Owners Join Forces with Ferry Meadows Rally

Cambridge-Oxford Owners Join Forces with Ferry Meadows Rally

A decade since they last combined forces, this year’s Cambridge–Oxford Owners Club (COOC) National Rally took place Sunday 3rd August 2014 as part of the larger BMC/BL spares day at Ferry Meadows Peterborough.

COOC members were instrumental in starting the Peterborough event 21 years ago and the committee is still chaired by long standing member David Frost. However, the club has not held its National Rally in conjunction with the Ferry Meadows rally for over ten years, making a welcome return to an event which has always been at the core of the yearly COOC calendar.

A strong and varied attendance of 62 classic club cars and many more members from all over the UK were present, the furthest travelled being Ken Breckon's Riley 4/72 which had a total journey of over 350miles.

It was notable that more club cars than ever are being restored to a very high standard, showing that the Farina and pre-farina designs really have found their feet as classic cars.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Pre-farina cars the club caters for.
