One of Suffolk’s biggest attractions returns this weekend – to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

Up to 600 vehicles are expected to take part in the classic car race and rally from Ipswich to Felixstowe, which is back after a two-year absence due to the Covid pandemic.

It takes place on Sunday, May 1, and organizers have a full entry of vintage and veteran cars, motorcycles, and commercial and military vehicles.

The 2020 rally was supposed to be the event’s 50th anniversary race, but now Sunday has that honor and huge crowds are expected to enjoy the event.

Drivers and their vehicles will begin to assemble at Christchurch Park in Ipswich from around 9.30am, where they will be available for people to view, before departing for Felixstowe at 11am. They will then line up on prom and Undercliff Road West for the afternoon.

The resort is expecting around 20,000 visitors to enjoy the spectacle and provide an early season boost to waterfront traders.
