Set in the beautiful Moffat hills, the rally is an incredible place to both exhibit your cherished classic or vintage motor car and is a wonderful visitor experience. The rally accommodates 900 entries some of which come hundreds of miles to participate.

This 2 day event has a drive through the Moffat hills on the Saturday which is a glorious sight and Sunday is the main gathering in the Moffat showground, with a large display of classic cars, auto-jumble/trade stands and children’s entertainment. Classic car fans and many of the entrants will be travelling from Europe, some down from the Shetland Isles, many from Northern Ireland, Wales as well as Kent, Cornwall and Dorset to take part in this amazing 2 day event.

The fun kicks off with a road run (which 300 cars can participate in) to St. Mary’s Loch, with the first cars leaving the town centre at midday in 15 minute intervals in groups of 60. There will be a picnic stop at the Loch and the route will also take in Megget and Talla reservoirs. Motor bikes are a welcome part of the Moffat Classic Car Rally. The Car Rally has been a fabulous connection with the town of Moffat. It appeals to enthusiasts, the businesses in the town and to the public that visit.
