Chatsworth to include Nations Cup.

The VK-sponsored Rally Show at Chatsworth will include a 'Nations Cup' competition this year, it has been confirmed.

Under it, teams of three cars from any of the European nations will be able to compete against one another on both days of the extravaganza, which will take place from June 6-7.

Only the times of the fastest two cars in each team will count and the total time of those will decide the outcome. There are currently teams planned from Ireland, Britain and Germany, with hopefully more to come.

Another innovation meanwhile, is that, at the end of each day, there will be a 'run-off event' for the ten fastest cars competing on the stages that day.

"Rather in the fashion of F1 qualifying, the ten cars will run the stages and the two slowest will be eliminated; the remaining eight will go again, with the two slowest again eliminated until there are just two cars left to do final runs and decide the winner," explained the organisers.

"On the Sunday, the victor's prize will be the C.G.Neill Trophy, which in the past has always been awarded to the winner of the final event."

In addition the historic events have been expanded and as well as individual events on Saturday and Sunday catering for the Historic Rally Car Register's category 1, 2 and 3 cars - ranging from the 1950s right through to 1981 - the show will host round four of the Northern Historic Rally Championship on Sunday morning.

Other features for 2009 include an event for GT and Sports Cars and the 'All-Comers' Event, which has now been split into two.
