The Heritage Motor Centre, home to the world’s largest collection of British cars and the annual Mini Festival, is to host a special Historic Rally Car Register Open Day on Saturday 16 January from 9:30am – 4:30pm. The HRCR Club was designed for those interested in historic rallying, the branch of motorsport dedicated to cars that were rallied from the 1950s through to the 1980s.
2010 marks the 40th anniversary of the 1970 London to Mexico World Cup Rally. A number of original cars that took part will be on display plus visitors can find out all they need to know about historic rallying. Visitors will be able to see the launch of the 2010 Stage & Road HRCR Championship season plus special scenic tours and the chance to see 100 series start up rallies. One highlight of the event will be the chance to listen to special guest rallying legend ‘Brian Culcheth’ interviewed by Graham Robson, a well known motoring writer and historian.
John Bishop, Car Clubs & Groups Co-ordinator at the Heritage Motor Centre stated “We’re delighted to be hosting the Historic Rally Car Register Open Day. The show is an absolute must for historic rally enthusiasts. Historic rallying is booming and becoming ever more popular among rally fans. This nostalgic event is not to be missed”.
Entry to the event is free of charge with the first 200 visitors also receiving complimentary entry to the museum. Thereafter rally attendees will qualify for discounted entry into the museum for just £6 per person. It should be a great event for all Mini and classic rallying fans.
