The Cleethorpes rally marks the midway point in the national rally season, and Lexham Insurance were once again in attendance along with thousands of scooterists old and new. The weather played a huge part in ensuring the rally’s success, with scorching sunshine for the majority of the weekend.
Organised by Mansfield Monsters/Olympics Scooter Club, the rally was in its 20th year and was bigger and better than ever drawing in crowds from near and far. The main campsite was at Meridian showground, which as a regular concert & event venue provided ample room for camping, an impressive trade fair and of course the traditional custom show. Some of our favourite entrants included a Blue Lambretta inspired by the band ‘The Who’ and a Italjet Dragster with a ‘Deadpool’ theme. A full gallery can be found with photos of all that caught our eye.
The official evening events were held just down the road at the beachcomber. Both nights were supported well, and the bands and DJ’s ensured everyone had a fantastic night (the £2 a pint beer may have played a part as well). All the usual music including ska, two tone and northen soul could be heard well into the early hours of the morning.
Overall a superb weekend and let’s hope it continues for another 20 years!
