2020 HRCR to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the RAC rally’s use of forest stages!
The HRCR (Historic Rally Car Register) Open Day returns to the British Motor Museum on 11 January 2020 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the RAC rally’s first use of forest stages. The HRCR will showcase how that diversification has led to a full and multi-disciplined sport today. Hosted by legendary rally co-driver Mike Broad, a series of short forums will cover each aspect that the HRCR is involved in; Speed, Road and Tour and Stage Rally.
Confirmed for the Speed Forum are Ian Hunt and daughter Vicky, who will bring their Mini Cooper S. They will explain what it’s like competing in the HRCR Speed Series, in which they’ve had great success this year. With three generations of the Hunt family having competed in the same car, they offer a real insight into what is involved for those of any age thinking of joining them in the HRCR Speed Series for 2020.
As ‘the home of historic rallying’, the HRCR Open Day is a social gathering where the rally community gathers to meet friends, admire rally cars from the 1950s to the 1980s and talk to organisers of the events making up the 6 HRCR championships in the UK. The HRCR brings together all forms of the sport including historic road and stage rallying, historic endurance rallying, speed events for historic vehicles and scenic tours. Visitors can talk with championship organisers, register for the championships on the day and join the HRCR.
Tom Caren, Show Manager at the British Motor Museum stated “For those interested in historic rallying the HRCR event is a great social day out and a fantastic opportunity to see so many rally cars on display. The intention is to give those who attend the chance to see what’s involved whether they are starting out, or an experienced competitor looking to try something else”.
The HRCR Open Day runs from 9.30am – 3:30pm and entry is free of charge. Entry to the Museum is extra, there is discounted entry for HRCR members on the day (when they show their membership card), otherwise normal Museum entry fees apply. The Museum is open from 10am – 5pm.
