Sat 24 Jul Lombard Rally Festival Bradford


The organising team behind Lombard Rally Bath are delighted to introduce a further new event for 2021, recreating the first stage of the 1984 and 1985 Bradford based international rally, as an untimed demonstration event. Some forty to fifty historic rally cars will strut their stuff around the narrow, winding tarmac route inside the park. The historic rally cars will have around eight to ten runs around the park during the day. To make it even more interesting, the cars will run in different directions, morning to afternoon. Rally stars will be interviewed and shown on a big screen, as will further live footage of what is taking place. Catering will be available on site and a display organised by another well-known classic car event will show off other stunning historic cars. At no time will the cars be timed, it is a demonstration event only.

To watch cars like Mini Coopers, Hillman Imps and Austin Healeys from the 1960s, through Escorts, Triumphs and Sunbeams from the 1970s to Opel Mantas, Audi Quattros and other Group B cars from the 1980s, Bowling Park will be the place to be on July 24th.

A fantastic array of classic cars will also be on display in a dedicated area, plus spectators will be able to view the rally cars between their runs in their service area.

Following the action at Bowling Park there will be a traditional Rally Forum at the nearby Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top, Elland, Huddersfield, featuring an array of former rally stars, including 1985 Lombard RAC Rally winning co-driver, Neil Wilson. We will also be joined by other former well known rally faces, including factory co-drivers Mike Wood and John Millington, to tell stories of rally wins and fails, of dragging failing rally cars to the finish and much more. In addition, rally films will be shown and a pre-booked buffet dinner will also be available. Entry to the evening events will be by pre-booked ticket only.
