The National MicroCar Rally - Britain's biggest Microcar event

This site offers superb facilities including first class toilets and showers along with electric hook ups, a site shop, cash machine and even an open air heated swimming pool!

We will be based in our own area of this large site with separate entrance.

Plans for the runs out are under way with Fridays run taking us to Cosford Air Museum. Saturdays road run also has an aviation theme but includes stops at places of local interest and beauty spots including the odd castle here and there. There may be car park charges in some places.

The entertainment is booked for Saturday night so bring your dancing shoes!

There will be 51 electric hook up pitches. Each pitch is for one campervan with awning or one tent.
There is a total limit on pitches both with and without electric so with this in mind this year it is advisable to book in advance to be sure of getting a pitch.

If you don't book and chance turning up, if all our pitches are taken there is the possibility of booking into the main campsite itself but this will be at their usual going rate and not ours.

Pitches with Electric hookup will be £15 per night. Pitches without hookup will be £11 a night.
There is a £10 deposit to be paid (non refundable as we still have to pay for the pitches even if you don't turn up.) There will be a further fee for the Rally packs but costs for this have not been finalised yet.

People wishing to book should do so by post with a cheque for the deposit Made out to:
The Heinkel Trojan Club LTD.

Please state which nights you want to book for. The balance of the payment will be taken on arrival at the rally.
(Regrettably deposits can not be taken by Paypal or BACS) for any other queries, please contact Alison at

The National MicroCar Rally (or "NMCR") is held once a year, normally on the first weekend in September.

It’s when microcar enthusiasts meet to chat, swap spares, show off their cars, and drive them to visit the surrounding area. For anyone interested in microcars, it’s a great opportunity to see a bit of motoring history, in action.

The Unicar - the greatest value of any small car.

Or so the adverts said! Available from 1956 till 1959, Opperman's Unicar featured a British Anzani or later, Excelsior Talisman engine, and from 1958 was available to build at home as a kit.
