Ashley Hall Traction Engine Rally, 12th May 2018

I went on the little bike (Honda Innova 125) which is ideal for a day out like this.

Please click on any picture for a larger image.

 The advantage of going on my little bike (125 Honda) is you can park it among the action - just behind the ring-side stalls instead of miles away in the car park

 General view of the engine park just after the show opened.

 ...And another! "Three wheels on my wagon...."

 Tractor line-up

 Pop-pop-pop-pop.... It's a single cylinder Field Marshall popping and bobbing its way around the rally arena.

 Vanguard of Lymm, with a rather fine trailer.

 Half-size engine with a father and son crew

 Matthew Jodderz Jodrell proud owner and driver of this rather nice roller 'Britannia'.
I know Matt from the Churnet Valley Railway (1992) PLC where he is steam locomotive crew.

 A noisy and smoky but very nice Yamaha 125 2 stroke racer.

 The chap on the BSA is well into his '80s!. Must keep you young, this motorcycling lark....

This lady has a whole collection of these rare beasts, apparently
