LOCAL husband-and-wife rally team, Troy and Penny O'Doherty, have given Coffs Harbour schools a show-and-tell to remember.

Lighting up the quadrangles of St Augustine's, Coffs Harbour Primary and Kororo Public with their 1978 Triumph TR-7, they have taken the rally week hype to the schoolyards.

For Troy the visit to Coffs Primary was a return to where it all started.

"I was sitting in those kids' places in 1978, as a student at this school, so yeah it's great to be back," Troy said.

As Troy's navigator, Penny is hoping to steer her husband to victory in this week's Coffs Coast Classic Rally.

"We had some success last year placing third in a classic rally in Queensland and we would just love to make the podium here on the Coffs Coast, it would be special."
