Description
Rallying Reformed See or drive classic Lombard RAC Rally stages in a period rally car or a classic car, 1970s style Rally Forum and Rally Dinner to swap stories with our featured star drivers. Great spectating at Bath Racecourse or Cirencester Park on Saturday morning. Our charity in 2019 is Mission Motorsport, helping ex-servicemen or women start a new career in Motorsport or the Motor Industry. You will able to buy a ride in the co-drivers seat with iconic drivers, or in iconic cars to support the Charity. Our Vision To bring back Lombard to rallying and to recreate part of what the Lombard RAC Rally stood for in the 1970s and 198os. We wanted to recreate the opportunity to drive some long lost rally stages in rally cars, or even classic cars, that might have taken part in that iconic rally and to bring those cars back to areas that had not seen rally cars, often for many years. Our Approach We were rallying in the period that you could take any car and turn it into a rallycar - often driving to and from work in it as well. See just taking part as a huge challenge and finishing a rally was something to be proud of. Afterwards, whatever your result, tales were swapped in the bar and we wanted to recreate that friendship. Our Story The event is the brainchild of Tim Nash, who rallied in the seventies, competing in three Lombard Rallies after following his hugely successful brother into the sport - works co-driver with Ford, Triumph, Lancia, Renault Alpine and BMC/British Leland. Great assistance from him team in organisation and Pauline Gullick in recruiting star drivers.
