Andy Fairchild, Managing Director of Footman James explained: “This is an amazing opportunity for classic enthusiasts to win a truly memorable experience. There is no doubt that the mid 80s and early 90s were the golden era for fans of rallying. Group B cars ruled the world of international rallying, with the cars and drivers an amazing sight to behold. Interestingly, historical motorsport footage of Group B is the most popular search on YouTube, even beating F1! Such a competition is sure to have delegates in a spin!”

Tim Foster from Rallying With Group B added: “We are pleased to be returning to this popular event to portray the history of Rallying with not only Group B cars but interesting examples of Rallying’s past & present.”
