Stig Blomqvist leads the way at Rallyday, Saturday 21st September, 2013

1984 World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist heads an all-star cast which includes current World Rally Championship leader, Sebastien Ogier. In addition, Paddy Hopkirk, Guy Wilks, Dai Llewellin, Gwyndaf & Elfyn Evans, and all the stars will be putting on a “Plenty Sideways” performance behind the wheel! 

Ogier & Blomqvist will both be driving genuine ex-works Group B Audi quattros – an Audi quattro S1E2 for Blomqvist (supplied by Audi UK) and an Audi quattro A2 for Ogier (from a private collector).  As if that was not enough, fans of Group B Rallying will be treated to an array of more legendary cars in the form of five genuine Metro 6R4’s, a Ford RS200, an Opel Manta 400, a Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, plus lots of other surprises which are expected to join the already packed attractions on the day, currently awaiting confirmation.

Britian’s brightest new rallying talent Elfyn Evans will be putting M-Sport’s latest project, the stunning M-Sport Ford Fiesta R5 through it’s paces. Wilks will be piloting Mitsubishi’s last Lancer WRC05 car, while Llewellin will be back in the seat of an Audi Coupe quattro, which has recently been built to comply with the specifications of a 1986 Group A car.

This year, Rallyday, the UK’s premier rally car show celebrates its 13th year at Castle Combe Circuit. Paddy Hopkirk will lead the 50th anniversary celebrations for the iconic Mini Cooper and Prodrive will be joining in festivities with the latest Mini Cooper WRC. Rallyday will also be celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Lancia Fulvia and the 30th anniversary of the Group B era where spectators will have the ultra rare opportunity to witness some of these legendary cars being driven once again on the Feature Stage, alongside cars from the 2013 British Rally Championship. It’s going to a huge spectacle not to be missed!!

The event features non-stop action all day on track and in the paddock, rally car rides, hundreds of display cars, trade exhibits, interviews, video games and simulators as well as rallycross and autograss demos and 2013 boasts their largest ever 4×4 Rally Raid Zone featuring Race2Recovery Dakar Rally team, off-road monsters, Challenge area, new 4×4 experience and demos throughout the show!
