Description
Following the advice from the Government regarding COVID-19, this event has been postponed until Sunday 18 April 2021. We know this will be disappointing but we are all having to make hard decisions in these difficult times and we thank you for your understanding. A one day event celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the 16000 mile London to Mexico World Cup Rally. The Historic Marathon Rally Group (HMRG) are organising a reunion and celebration of this iconic rally, 50 years to the day that the competitors left Wembley Stadium on their 16000 mile adventure through Europe, South and Latin America. Originally 106 teams entered with only 96 starting from Wembley and just 23 finished at the Aztec Stadium in Mexico, 6 weeks later. The Ford Escort, FEV 1H of Hannu Mikkola and Gunnar Palm, took first prize. Visitors will be able to see the cars and meet the people involved in the event in all different aspects. There will be interviews, films, talks and a large display of memorabilia. The HMRG would like to hear from anyone connected to the rally who would be interested in joining them at this celebration. https://historicmarathonrallygroup.co.uk/
