Donington Park
Showbus Rally
25/9/16

This year, the Showbus rally moved from Duxford to a new location at Donington Park. This was quite a long trip for us but allowed us to see quite a lot of vehicles that don’t venture south far enough for us to regularly see.

AEC Regent III, Rochdale 235 (HDK 835), was one of a number of vehicles from “oop north” that I hadn’t seen before.

RF433’s parking spot at Donington Park was in a shady corner and it was only after most other vehicles had left we got a chance to photograph it
