This model was produced for the 2005 North Weald Rally which has unfortunately been cancelled by the organisers.  The below is an extract of an email sent by the organisers on Saturday 7th May 2005 which explains the situation.

"It is with great regret that the rally organisers have decided to cancel the North Weald Bus Rally. This is to do with a change of management at the airfield and local government red tape, health and safety etc. We have tried to comply but they keep wanting more and more and still havn't formally agreed the booking. We therefore decided yesterday that it was better to cancel it now and give everyone warning rather than go to the wire and have it cancelled by the council on June 25th. Please accept our apologies and we thank you for your support over the years".

On receipt of the report I immediately contacted Mr Peter Coe who is distributing the model (see News report dated Saturday 7 May) and told him what I had heard. Mr Coe advised me that the model for this years show had already been produced by EFE and that he had taken delivery of them.

I received a call from Mr Coe on 10th May to advise me he had spoken to Mr Frank Joyce at EFE. EFE have advised that even though the rally is not going ahead they will still recognise the model as having full EFE code 2 status. Furthermore Mr Joyce indicated he would write an article for the next EFE subscribers newsletter explaining the situation.

If you would like to purchase one of these models please CLICK HERE for a copy of the order form. Please email or telephone Mr Coe first to check on availability (see News report dated Saturday 7 May for contact details).
