Car Information: Race Retro will play host to over £100million of Motorsport Heritage - with a promise to have more racing and rally cars on display than ever before! Alongside the stunning £10 million Bentley Speed 8 we announced last week, raced at Le Mans by Tom Kristensen, a whole host of racing and rally vehicles of note will be at Race Retro to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Some to keep your eye out for include; Marrku Alén’s Fiat 131 Abarth, winner of the 1978 FIA Cup | John Surtees’ DFV powered TS14 single seaters | The late Colin McRea’s 1996 Subaru Impreza WRC 97 001 | The Porsche Carerra 2.7 litre lightweight, AUI 1500, said to be the most successful race rallying Porsche of all time! | The British Touring Cars Championship racing Rover SD1 | A gorgeous 1950s D-Type Jaguar raced at the Sebring 12-hr The Live Rally Stage will see a reunion for both our Rallying legends as both Ari Vatanen and Markku Alen are reunited with cars they drove – one of which was lucky enough to have them both behind the wheel. In the early 1990s, Subaru entered its first Prodrive developed car, the Subaru Legacy RS into the World Championship. The 1990 season saw Alén behind the wheel of the initial car with Vatanen moving in for 1992. This car will be on the Live Rally stage under the watchful eye of Rallying with Group B, where both drivers will get behind the wheel. Vatanen will also drive of one of the most iconic cars of his career – the Rothmans Ford Escort – whilst also putting a BMW M3 through its paces over the weekend.
