Saturday and Sunday 2nd and 3rd September was the Bus Driver of the Year Competition 2017. Held along North Shore with the base being at the Hilton Hotel. On the Sunday driving trials were held starting at the Metropole Hotel and running along the middle promenade and back round along the prom road.
Buses from all over the UK with Dundee and Bournemouth being the furthest seen. Although Solent might be further. Stagecoach brought a 67 registered single decker and Solent brought a lady driver. Overall some smart buses on show including the Blackpool one’s, being a credit to their operators and localities.
On Saturday it was a gorgeous day but on Sunday it rained. Wasn’t too bad though. Here are some photos:
