The star attraction at today’s Chiltern Hills Rally in Weedon will be two vintage Cubitt cars that were built in Aylesbury during the 1920s.

The cars will provide the centrepiece to the popular annual rally of rare and vintage vehicles from 10am-5pm.

Adrian Fell, one of the organisers of the rally, said: “Cubitt cars were made in Aylesbury by the Thomas Cubitt Engineering Company. We believe there are only seven left in the world, and two of them are in Aylesbury.”

“We are very excited about bringing them together for public display.”

The rally has always been held at Aylesbury Rugby Club in Weston Turville, but due to its popularity and success it is moving this year.

The rally is instead being held at Weedon Park on the A413 between Aylesbury and Whitchurch near to the location of Bucks County Show.

The new site will offer more parking and better traffic facilities.

More than 600 entries have been received from vintage car enthusiasts and vehicles on display will include Morris Minors, Triumph Spitfires, motorcyles, scooters, commercial vehicles, buses and a 1939 Albion lorry.

Other attractions will include trade stands, a fun dog show, children’s rides and refreshments.
