Live Rally Stage with Group B cars

One of the most exciting elements of the show is without doubt the Live Rally Stage. Taking place on Saturday and Sunday of the show, this year the show expands to having two brand new Live Rally Stages which will celebrate rallying's past with a stunning selection of cars brought together by Rallying with Group B. This year, around 120 Group A, B and C cars are set to take to the stage to show us how it's really done!

The Rally Stage isn't just for spectators. For those who want to get more of a thrill from their day at show, head over to the Rally Stage and book yourself in for a passenger ride with one of the experienced rally drivers, many of whom are still competing regularly. A few laps around the stage will cost just £25, and take our word for it, it's truly worth it! Please find T&C's for passenger rides further down the page.

Welcoming ex-works and WRC cars, this year's first ten drivers have been announced with the likes of Chris Robson in his 1982 Citroen Visa UK ex-works rally car (the first purpose-built rally car to be homologated into Group B​) and Warren Philliskirk with his crowd thrilling Renault 6R4 which was built by John Price and won many tarmac rallies and championships. Other champions include Jimmy McRae and Chris Ingram who will be taking to the stage over the weekend. Click here to view the full list of drivers.
