Retro rally favourites set for Oulton Park demo runs

Wednesday, November 05 2014

Visitors to the Neil Howard Stages and Fireworks at Oulton Park this Saturday (8 November) will be treated to demonstration runs from retro rally cars, including powerful 1980s Group B machines, on the venue's infield rally stage.

The Group B line-up includes a trio of MG Metro 6R4s, a cult favourite with British rally fans, with outrageous bodywork and aerodynamic parts, and a pair of Opel Mantas. These machines are from an era in which rallying budgets rivalled Grand Prix racing, boast an incredible rate of acceleration and are spectacular to watch in the corners.

Iconic machines from other eras will include a Toyota Celica, as driven to World Rally victories by drivers such as Carlos Sainz and Juha Kankkunen, and a Ford Sierra Cosworth, similar to that in which Didier Auriol won the 1988 Tour de Corse.

The classic line-up is completed by a Rover SD1, Lotus Sunbeam, and a Vauxhall Chevette.

Tickets for the Neil Howard Stage Rally and Fireworks at Oulton Park are available online until midday today (Wednesday 5 November) for £10 (or on the gate for £14) with free entry for under 13s. For more information please call 0843 453 9000 or click here.
