 Showbus is the largest and most popular event on the UK rally calendar.   Now firmly established at the Imperial War Museum at Duxford, during the 1980s its home was in the grounds of Woburn Abbey.   When the sun shone it was a Field of Dreams, but when the rain poured it was an Ocean of Storms.   This article celebrates Showbus at Woburn Abbey.
