Classic Rally Cars Ready for RallyFest at Chirk Castle

RallyFest at Chirk Castle

RallyFest at Chirk Castle on Saturday 15 November is looking to be a day of high octane classic car enjoyment with parades and displays of supercars and historic rally cars.

The family-friendly RallyFest is one of the highlights of this year’s Wales Rally GB (13-16 November), the UK’s concluding round of the FIA World Rally Championship. Visitors will be treated to dramatic WRC action as the world’s top drivers blast their fire-breathing machines around a special competitive section laid out on the private roads around the medieval castle.

The RallyFest has been created to deliver more than just the thrills and spills of the dramatic rally stage. To whet the appetites of spectators, parades and displays of both supercars and classic rally cars are also on the eye-catching bill.

The line-up of dazzling supercars will arrive at Chirk at around 10am in the morning. They will complete two laps of the stage before parking up for visitors to get a closer look. Among the pin-ups already confirmed are icons from magical marques such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Maserati and Porsche as well as one of the superfast and ultra rare BAC Monos.

Once all the exotica is on public display, the stage will host evocative demonstration runs by selected classic rally cars. Arranged by the ever-enthusiastic Slowly Sideways UK, visitors are promised the sights, sounds and smells from the sport’s golden ages.
