The first two events in 2016 and 2017 were called the Basildon Bus Rally. The name was changed to Essex Bus Rally for the 2018 event.
The first bus rally in 2016 attracted 36 buses & coaches and approximately 300 visitors. It was something of a last minute squash due to poor weather flooding the rally field in the days leading up to the rally day itself. The second rally in 2017 was much more successful with 70 vehicles and 600 visitors onsite.
2018 was our most succesful event to date with no less than 101 buses & coaches in attendance alongside 1,200 visitors.
