Combe to hail Bath’s RAC days

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The Cas­tle Combe Ral­ly­day in Septem­ber will cel­e­brate the 30th and 40th an­niver­saries of the Lombard RAC Rally start­ing in nearby Bath.

Bath was the event’s host town in 1976 and 1986 and the ’86 event fea­tured a spec­ta­tor stage at the Wilt­shire track. To mark the an­niver­saries, the 16th Ral­ly­day, which takes place on Satur­day Septem­ber 24, will in­clude cars from the two RAC Ral­lies, in­clud­ing some Group B cars.

The 1986 event was the last ma­jor Euro­pean rally of the Group B era.

In ad­di­tion to Satur­day’s ac­tion on the 3.7-mile spe­cial stage, an in­for­mal gath­er­ing will be held on Fri­day evening for those peo­ple in­volved in the two ral­lies and Bath’s part in the event’s his­tory.
