I'm heading along there Sunday to see the show and especially the rally cars.

Russell Brookes should be playing in his Manta on the rally demo 'stage'.

I'm hoping that the Chevy Firenza is there again this year too - sounds amazing :D

No Chevy Firenza this year. Though Russell Brookes was out in the Heat for Hire Manta 400 and Sunbeam.

Also saw Ian Hill, in his GT/E (or i200) on the rally display, plus there was a Kadett GT/E giving it the beans :D

Good stuff, lucky you :D

How did I not realise you could get passenger rides?

Would have liked to take my own car to play around there, but guess it isn't 'Group 4 / Group B standard' so wouldn't be welcome
