Fin­nish rally aces Ari Vata­nen and Markku Alen will drive Group B rally cars on the live ac­tion spe­cial stage at Race Retro on Satur­day Fe­bru­ary 25.

To cel­e­brate the 15th edi­tion of the in­ter­na­tional his­toric motorsport show at Stoneleigh Park, the event or­gan­is­ers have pulled off a ma­jor coup by at­tract­ing two of the lead­ing rally driv­ers of a gen­er­a­tion.

Vata­nen will be on hand on Satur­day and Sun­day, while Alen will at­tend the show on Fri­day af­ter­noon and Satur­day. Both are due to drive on the demon­stra­tion spe­cial stage on Satur­day.

“I am de­lighted to be in­vited and look for­ward to driv­ing on the rally stage with my old friend Ari,” said Alen. “It will be a great week­end.”

Vata­nen, who at­tended the 2015 show, said: “I am very much look­ing for­ward to see­ing all the rally fans over the week­end. To get to drive these fan­tas­tic cars again is an hon­our and I can’t wait!”
