NEWS: Wales Rally GB 2013 Showcasing Rally Cult Classics

In addition to this year's Wales Rally GB's new North Wales base, family-friendly 'RallyFest' spectator stages in historic venues (which we will be covering in the next Road Magazine), classic Welsh gravel forest stages, the top WRC cars and stars coming to do battle and National Rally events running alongside – the event will also give us rally fans a chance to see some cool cult classics.
Flame-spitting Audi Quattros, Escort and Sierra Cosworths, classic Imprezas and legendary Lancias and T16 Peugeots will take part in very special demonstrations for the RallyFests and at the final stage on Sunday, on the infamous Great Orme.
Event organisers say: "Britain has hosted a round of the FIA World Rally Championship ever since the sport’s premier series was introduced in 1973 and a selection of eye-catching cars from the four decades since will be taking part in static displays and evocative demonstration runs during this year’s event."
The mouth watering full list of classic contenders from past generations on parade is deeply impressive – it includes the much-loved Audi Sport quattro S1, Ford Escort Cosworth, Lancia 037, Lancia Delta S4, MG Metro 6R4, Peugeot 205 T16, Renault 5 Maxi Turbo plus a pair of Subaru Imprezas rallied by Colin McRae and Richard Burns. In total around 20 legendary cars are being provided by the Slowly Sideways UK organisation.
These wonderful collections will be on show at the Service Park in Deeside as well as at the new, family-friendly RallyFest Stages at Sweet Lamb on Friday and Kinmel Park on Sunday, when the cavalcade will also be in action performing on the Great Orme immediately before the main event.
The biggest gathering, though, will be at the Chirk Castle RallyFest on Saturday, which will host both dramatic demonstration runs on the special stage and a static display featuring the full line-up of automotive idols from the past.
“As well as seeing the current generation of pocket rockets flying through the stages, fans at selected venues will also be able to marvel at some of the greatest cars from past generations – the iconic machines that helped to establish the RAC Rally as one of this country’s best-loved sporting events,” said Andrew Coe, Chief Executive of event organiser International Motor Sports Ltd.
Individual adult tickets for the three fun-filled RallyFest stages are priced at just £25* – which includes a free programme normally priced at £7.50. Significant discounts also are available for families. Full information on tickets can be found on the Wales Rally GB website
Get involved for a chance to see these iconic rally cars in action. It's an experience to savour and one you will never forget... let alone witnessing the gravel-blastign pace of the top-level WRC cars. See you there!
