UK Coach Rally & Coach Driver of the Year Winner!

Posted on: 21st Apr 2012

Grey's of Ely once again entered the UK Coach Rally, held at the East of England show ground and in its 58th Year, and our Managing Director won Coach Driver of the Year!


Managing Director, Richard Grey, being presented his trophy by Peter Hendy, City of London Traffic Commissioner.

For the third time since 2008, Grey's joined nearly 40 other top coach companies at the annual UK Coach Rally. The two day event consists of Road Sections, Precision Driving and Show and Shine.
Managing Director, Richard Grey, drove the company's latest fleet addition, a 12.9 metre 57-seat luxury Coach.
He made it through the first days heats on the precision driving course as one of 12. The course is designed to test the driver to the very limits of accurate vehicle driving and placement, through a series of tight and complex manoeuvres.
Richard walked away, on the second day as out right winner for Coach Driver of Year, winning the course based on lowest penalty points and fastest time by 20 seconds of the next nearest competitor.
