Reis Pride of the Paddock

Reis Race Retro prides itself on the outstanding displays of iconic cars that hold such presence in motorsport history.

These cars may not have stood at the top of the podium in Formula 1 or the World Rally Championship, but to us, they cars are still winners. We like to give recognition to those competition and rally cars that are participating in grassroots motorsport and the Pride of the Paddock does just that.

Any car that has competed in a race or rally at any level is eligible to enter, along with high spec replicas of racing and rally cars from historic motorsport, every discipline of motorsport is covered in the line up. The finalists are hand-picked for their stunning exteriors, and sentimental stories - all of which have a great history.

Up to 16 vehicles are invited into the final, with the cars displayed alongside the Reis Live Stage within the prestigious Hall of Fame in Hall 3. Visitors are invited to vote for the best racing and rally car on show to determine the winner of the Reis Pride of the Paddock competition, awarded on the Sunday.
