Bumper entry for Neil Howard Rally and Fireworks

Monday, October 13 2014

A diverse 89-car entry will line up for the season-closing Neil Howard Rally and Fireworks spectacular at Oulton Park on 8 November.

Rally machines of all ages are set to take part, including no fewer than 20 Ford Escorts, from the classically-modelled Mk I to the prolific Mk II and powerful Mk V in WRC specification. Other chapters of Ford's successful rallying history appearing will include a Ford Anglia, Ford Focus WRC '05, and a current-spec Ford Fiesta WRC.

The fierce rallying rivalry which raged between Subaru and Mitsubishi throughout the '90s and '00s will be recreated as a number of Imprezas and Evos take to the track. Subaru's and Mitsubishi's rally cars have always been famously evenly-matched so it will be fascinating to see who comes out on top.

One of the most impressive machines to watch will be John Indri's Darrian T90 GTR, a mid-engine rear-wheel-drive car, which has been custom-prepared for tarmac rally competition.

Other interesting entries include a selection of Peugeot 205s, a Toyota Celica GT Four, and a contingent of rear-wheel-drive BMWs.

Drivers will be required to negotiate a series of challenging stages, including a new-for-2014 section on the venue's bespoke rally course. Highlights will include the chance to see cars driving into the darkness for the only time this season at Oulton Park and, through a water splash.

Entertainment will be concluded by a bonfire and fireworks display.

Tickets for the Neil Howard Rally and Fireworks 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
