Toivonen to be remembered at Race Retro
The life of rally driver Henri Toivonen will be celebrated at Race Retro, at Stoneleigh near Coventry on February 26-28.
Toivonen and co-driver Sergio Cresto died on the 1986 Tour de Corse and their deaths contributed to the banning of Group B rally cars for 1987. The 30th anniversary of the accident will be marked by a feature display cars from his career including an example of the Lancia Delta S4.
Other cars on show will be the rebuilt Ford Escort Mk2 he drove on the 1979 Lombard RAC Rally, as well as an Opel Ascona, Porsche 911 and Talbot Sunbeam Lotus.
The display has been co-ordinated by Peter Clarke, owner of the Escort that Toivonen drove in 1979.
The event organisers hope that his younger brother Harri will be present along with former co-drivers Paul White and Phil Boland.
