Organisers of Wales Rally GB announced that AutoClassics.com is supporting its special Rally Legends display in Llandudno – one of the major attractions during a history-making finale to this year’s event 4-7 October.
The famous Conwy County resort will host a full weekend’s entertainment in the countdown to Sunday’s dramatic rally finale which, for the very first time, will witness the stars from the World Rally Championship racing against-the-clock around the famed Great Orme and then through the closed streets of Llandudno.
Whetting appetites and simultaneously celebrating the event’s remarkable history an evocative showcase of much-loved rally cars from bygone eras will be exhibited on the Promenade on saturday and then on the town’s central Mostyn Street on Sunday – an eye-catching gathering now backed by AutoClassics.com.
Adding to the attraction, these revered cars will also be part of a glittering parade fronted by four-time world champion Juha Kankkunen. Together with his co-driver Nicky Grist, the Finn will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of his epic victory on the 1993 Network Q RAC Rally.
Retro icons already confirmed include many of the sport’s most illustrious machines including a Lancia Stratos, Ford Escorts, Triumph TR7 V8s, Lancia Integrales plus a number of idols from the fabled Group B era such as MG Metro 6R4s, Nissan 240 RS and Renault 5 Maxi Turbo.
