Rally of the Tests to hold Shel­s­ley Walsh runs

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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
