HUGHES RALLY   3rd June 2017

Andy Gibson

The Hughes Rally from its inception as an Historic Rally was the brainchild of Andy Gibson who sadly passed way last year.  Andy's funeral and memorial took place on 8th June last year just a few days after the 2016 Hughes Rally.  Andy was a highly respected figure in the world of rallying with many wins to his credit.  Many people from the world of rallying came to pay their respects at Andy's memorial and as a tribute a 'Rev Up' was held and this can be viewed below.
