Gert Bustards Rally
Near Devizes in Wiltshire
This is one of my favorite rallies of the year.
The ride up there was dry but I detoured along the A34 until I saw a sign announcing that I was in Berkshire. A quick turnaround and I was on course but it is a hard rally to find in the dark.
In the control tent I enquired if this was the 30th anniversary to be told "We don't know, we are Moonrakers!"
Friday night one band played, or rather mimed, but the cider and real ale was as ever plentiful and very good value as was the food in the separate marque, which was manned by the same people who do the catering at the Ogri Rally.
Saturday night two bands played and the bonfire was lit.
