National Scooter Rally destinations 2017


Easter April 14th-17th: Run by VFM, Scarborough and Whitby rotate every Easter so 2017 sees us back at the pretty little harbour town of Scarborough with its magnificent Victorian Spa hosting the entertainment. 


May Day April 28th- May 1st: Run by South West Scooter Clubs Weston and Exmouth also rotate but the date for Weston has moved to the May Day Bank Holiday for 2017. It’s a welcome change but it means B&B accommodation will be snapped up quickly due to the earlier date and potential for colder weather.


Spring Bank May 26th-28th: Kelso is run by the Scottish Number ones and is the only Scottish National. It’s just over the Scottish border so if you’ve never been before give it a go, it’s closer than you think and is a lovely town. 


June 9th-11th: Big 7 is run by Big 7 Scooter Club and their rally at the Hop Farm in Kent takes us nicely into summer. This already successful club rally gained National status for 2016 and retains it for next year. It’s still new enough to be exciting.


July 7th-9th: Cleethorpes is run by Mansfield Monsters/Olympics Scooter Clubs. This event celebrates its 20th year in 2017, it’s a great town for a rally with an abundance of pubs and a great campsite. 


July 21st-23rd: Llandudno is back for 2017, run by VFM it’s good to see this rally back on the calendar, it’s a great little town with everything a horde of thirsty scooterists need.


August Bank holiday 25th-28th August: The Isle of Wight is run by VFM and is the largest scooter rally in the world. It’s still very popular and has plenty of variety on offer around the island so you can make the weekend a bit different if you fancy a change.


September 22nd-25th: Woolacombe is run by South West Scooter Clubs. It’s an event with the busiest Sunday night on any rally – even though it’s not a Bank Holiday weekend. That’s usually due to an inspired and varied choice of Sunday night live entertainment. The accommodation on site is usually sold out a year in advance though so you have to get in quick or stop elsewhere in town or camp.


October 27th-29th: Bridlington is run by VFM & LCGB. Let’s face it, this is the perfect venue to host an end of season event with a huge Trade & Custom show as the main attraction. Although this event also suffers from over population so getting a room in a B&B isn’t easy but there are a couple of campsites with static caravans for hire and if you turn up on the day and are prepared to walk around knocking on doors somebody might take you in.
