ALLY DAY - HAPPY BIRTHDAY 15 YEARS OLD TODAY
15 YEARS OLD TODAY
This year the show celebrates its fifteenth anniversary and we've pulled out all the stops to make it the best yet, with an impressive line-up of rally cars, drivers, displays, trade stands and attractions.
The star attraction will, without doubt, be the appearance of 1981 World Rally Champion Ari Vatanen. He'll be joined by a host of other rally stars from past and present, including Elfyn Evans and the M-Sport WRC team, former BRC Champions Russell Brookes and David Higgins, Ukrainian rally ace Inessa Tushkanova and former co-driver turned presenter, Tony Mason.
All stars will be involved in meet & greet autograph sessions as well as interviews with our commentary team including both Howard Davies and Tony Mason
Central to Rallyday is the Castle Combe Circuit itself that, on the day, will be transformed into a fast, challenging tarmac course: the Castrol Edge Feature Stage. Showcasing over 60 superb rally cars, the stage will see drivers tackle the start-finish straight and a number of technical turns in front of thousands of spectators. Plus don't forget to visit them all during the day in the REIS Motorsport Feature Car Display Area
Once complete, spectators are invited to wander amongst the features out on the start line during the celebratory Public Feature Car Grid Walk due to start at 3.30pm
The day will also feature the Superpro Clubmans’ Stage: a mixed surface course that is likely to see cars at sideways angles at every opportunity.
The Cooper Tires 4x4 Zone will play host to off-road machines of a different nature; primarily British Cross-Country specials. Throughout the day, these amazing machines will be tackling a variety of off-road obstacles located within the Castle Combe circuit infield.
Passenger rides will be available on the main circuit and at the 4x4 Zone Rally Field.
A fantastic trade village has long been one of the principle attractions of Rallyday with over 50 stands exhibiting this year including Goodridge, Ravenol, Rally Design, MSport, Rally Retail and Kick Motorsport.
Gates open from 8.30am with track action commencing at 9am
Tickets can be purchased on the day: Adults £20, Seniors £15, under 16s FREE
