Enthusiasts are already rallying to the cause for an event that raises thousands for local charities.

The Chiltern Hills Rally already has 500 confirmed entries for the big bash on Sunday, May 19 – 100 up on the same time last year.

The 2012 rally was cancelled at late notice after appalling weather created safety problems because of flooding.

It was the first time the event hadn’t gone ahead in the 20-year history of the rally which has raised a total of £250,000 for good causes. This year’s rally at Aylesbury Rugby Club in Weston Turville should see more than 1,000 vintage vehicles on show and attract crowds of up to 6,000, with family entertainment that includes a dog show.
