Oulton fun still to come with rally scheduled for November

Monday, October 14 2013

Despite having hosted our last race meeting of the year, Oulton Park's season isn't over just quite yet, with the season-ending Neil Howard Memorial Stages Rally scheduled for next month (23 November). Last year's event proved popular with spectators and competitors alike, so expect a repeat with a jovial end of season atmosphere!

More than 90 cars have already been entered for the event, ranging from Alan Oldfield's unique Darrian T90 GTR to various incarnations of the Ford Escort. Also expect to see a tour de force of traction technology from rally specials including Subaru Imprezas and Mitsubishi Evos!

This rally dates back to the late 1970s, when it was known as 'The Clubman's Rally'. Originally taking place as a road rally on the lanes of Lancashire, the format quickly evolved into the stage rally we currently enjoy. By 1985 the event utilised a single venue format, and this has remained since with a variety of venues playing host until 2011. The Cheshire circuit became the rally's new home last season when stage rallying returned the venue for the first time in nearly twenty years.

Oulton's parkland landscape should provide a superb backdrop as these rally machines tackle several different circuit configurations as well as tackle the layout back to front!

The paddock will be open, offering you one last chance, this season, to soak up the atmosphere and meet the teams and drivers whilst getting a good look at the machinery on show. The new circuit bridge will also be open, allowing you greater access to the circuit's iconic sections than was available this time last year!

Tickets for the Neil Howard Memorial Stages Rally on 23 November at Oulton Park are available online for £10 with free entry for children aged 12 and under. For more information please call 0843 453 9000 or click  here.
