Rally of the Giants 2018

Date: July 8 2018

Location: Blenheim Palace, Woodstock, OX20 1PP,

The Pre ’50 American Auto Club presents Rally of the Giants at Blenheim Palace. This event covers everything from American motorcars and trucks to military vehicles and bikes.

What to Expect

Over 400 vehicles will be on display at the event, making it one of the largest gatherings of American vehicles in the UK. There is no restriction on age or marque so expect to see plenty of vehicles from the pre-war and vintage eras right through to the present day.

There will be many trade, food and drink stands at the Palace as well as a number of trophies awarded to the stand-out vehicles of the event.

Classic American Car of the Year Heat 5

Heat 5 of the Footman James Classic American Car of the Year award is also taking place at the Rally of the Giants. Previous heat winners so far include a 1965 Ford Mustang and a stunning Plymouth.

The winner of this heat will be invited to compete against the other heat winners at the Classic Motor Show in November, in the hope of scooping the trophy and the £500 cheque.
