Group B rally cars will be in full throt­tle ac­tion on a demon­stra­tion stage at the 2014 Foot­man James Clas­sic Car Show Manch­ester, tak­ing place at Even­tCity (20-21 Septem­ber).

The Group B era gave us cars that are, to this day, amongst the most iconic ever to com­pete in world ral­ly­ing. Sev­eral times daily at the show, Ral­ly­ing with Group B will be bring­ing the power and spec­ta­cle of th­ese cars, in full ac­tion, to a spe­cial demon­stra­tion stage area, which ev­ery show vis­i­tor can view as part of their day.

Foot­man James are of­fer­ing ev­ery show vis­i­tor the chance to win a pas­sen­ger ride in one of the Ral­ly­ing with Group B rally cars. There will be sev­eral win­ners cho­sen on each day of the show. To en­ter the draw, vis­i­tors sim­ply need to visit the Foot­man James stand at the show and fill in an en­try form. Win­ners will be drawn at ran­dom through­out the day.

Andy Fairchild, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Foot­man James ex­plained: “This is an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for clas­sic en­thu­si­asts to win a truly mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence. There is no doubt that the mid-1980s and early 1990s were the golden era for fans of ral­ly­ing. Group B cars ruled the world of in­ter­na­tional ral­ly­ing, with the cars and driv­ers an amaz­ing sight to be­hold.“

Tim Foster from Ral­ly­ing With Group B added: “We are pleased to be re­turn­ing to this popular event to por­tray the his­tory of ral­ly­ing, with not only Group B cars, but in­ter­est­ing ex­am­ples of ral­ly­ing past & present.”
