Shel­s­ley Hill De­scent!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Shel­s­ley Walsh’s hill­climb course will be com­pet­i­tively run down­hill for the first time when it forms part of the Roger Al­bert Clark Rally.

The 2017 RAC Rally is set to get off to a spec­tac­u­lar start on 10 Novem­ber cour­tesy of the two spec­ta­tor stages at the hill­climb near Worces­ter. It’s be­lieved to be the first time in the venue’s 112-year his­tory that it has hosted a rally spe­cial stage.

The open­ing stage will run from the start­line to the fin­ish and the sec­ond will run back down the hill. Chi­canes will be added to con­trol speed on the de­scent. Cars will com­plete both stages in batches of up to 30 to en­sure non-stop ac­tion.

RAC Rally man­ager, Colin Hep­pen­stall, says: ‘We’re de­lighted to be start­ing the com­pet­i­tive ac­tion of the rally at this iconic venue.’

Mark Con­stan­duros from Shel­s­ley Walsh adds: ‘This is the first time we’ve held a com­pet­i­tive rally, so there is a lot to do, but we are re­ally look­ing for­ward to hav­ing a dif­fer­ent mo­tor sport dis­ci­pline tak­ing place.’
