Jimmy McRae to attend Dayinsure Oulton Park Stage

Wednesday, September 04 2019

Five-time British Rally Champion Jimmy McRae, father of 1995 FIA World Rally Champion Colin McRae, will attend the opening stage of this year's Wales Rally GB at Oulton Park on Thursday 3 October.

This news comes just days after it was announced that Olympic track cycling superstar Sir Chris Hoy MBE would drive one of Colin's iconic Subaru Imprezas at the event.

Jimmy's appearance ties in to his participation in the two-day WRGB National Rally which follows the Oulton Park event on the Friday and Saturday.

Jimmy's famous Group B Rothmans-liveried MG Metro 6R4 from 1986 will be on show at Oulton Park as part of an eye-catching collection of past rally cars assembled to mark the 75th  running of Rally GB.

Backed by Autocar magazine, the showcase will include a number of stand-out machines dating back the inaugural RAC Rally of 1932, including machines driven by Colin McRae and Richard Burns.

Jimmy said: "I was so thrilled to hear that Chris would be driving one of Colin's cars and texted him saying how excited I am immediately I heard the news. It will be very special to be there to share in Chris' own celebration of what Colin achieved." 

All tickets for Oulton Park must be purchased in advance by 30 September with adult admission priced at just £25 with hospitality also available for those seeking the ultimate experience.
