The rally would have been celebrating its 10th anniversary on Saturday, but organisers took the decision on Thursday that they would have to cancel.

The showground between Eye and Stradbroke attracts around 3,000 people every year and raises funds for the Horham Community Council.

Mike Ager, one of the rally’s organisers, said: “Sadly Saturday’s has had to be cancelled at the last minute. It was a tough decision for the organisers to make but today’s [Thursday’s] downpours and further predicted rain mean that the event cannot go ahead.”

The event regularly attracts 100 historic tractors along with other farm machinery, historic military vehicles, motorcycles, stationary engines, cars and working horses.

The news comes as the organisers of the Suffolk Show announced that they had to cancel day two of the show because of the poor weather.
