Rally of the Tests to hold Shelsley Walsh runs
The 2016 Rally of the Tests (November 3-6) will give spectators several chances to see the cars in action, including on the Shelsley Walsh hillclimb.
The backing of the RAC has prompted a move to make the Bournemouth to Chester event more accessible to spectators as a capacity field of 100 cars of the 1950s, 1960s and early 1970s compete over 31 special tests and 20 regularity sections.
Several venues will be open to the public, notably the Shelsley Walsh hillclimb where the cars will arrive from 1500hrs on Saturday. It is thought be the first time that motor sport has run into the hours of darkness at the historic venue.
Other spectator venues include the kart tracks at Clay Pigeon in Dorset (0845hrs Friday) and Rednal in Shropshire (1115hrs on Sunday) and the RAC headquarters in Bristol (0800hrs on Saturday).
Classic cars from the 1950s,’60s and ’70s will run on Rally of the Tests
