EFE SHOWBUS International Rally 2005 will feature many attractions.
Bristols & Concorde With Hangar 1 reconstruction underway in 2005, Concorde will be
out on the tarmac enabling us to remake the link between the Bristol aircraft and bus industry
that dates back to World War I. As the Bristol marque fades away from the bus routes of
Britain we celebrate 130 years of Bristol Bus History and 94 years of Bristol Aviation History.
Read about the links between Bristol's trams and planes here.
Duxford site opens for entrants at 8.00 am.on Sunday September 18th.

Revised site layout. The revised entry arrangements for 2004 will be used again in 2005
but buses heading for the Concorde arena will travel the length of the taxiway to get there
and buses parking near the American Air Museum will use an entry gate further in to the site
to avoid some of the congestion after the pay booths. Parking Reception will be before the
Pay booth queue.
