Motor Sport News - - Where To Go This Season -

Any rally on the Isle of Man, we want to watch. The tight as­phalt roads, high speeds and un­pre­dictable weather make it a must-see event in any for­mat. It was dif­fi­cult to choose a sin­gle event from the three-legged is­land, but we fell on the Rally Isle of Man Classicagh. The event sup­ports the Bri­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship de­cider, so it’s a two-pronged as­sault of ral­ly­ing fever.

The Classicagh at­tracted en­tries from all over the world last year, and the his­toric event is a great op­por­tu­nity to see an as­sem­blage of his­toric cars from the usual Ford Es­cort Mk2s to 1960s Mi­nis.

This year’s rally is a dou­ble-header, with the Min­tex MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship joined by the new-for-2016 RAC His­toric As­phalt Cham­pi­onship. With cars from up to the end of 1990 el­i­gi­ble, we should see some Ford Sier­ras and BMW M3s in at­ten­dance too.
