Date set for Rallyday 2011

UK's Premier Rally Car Show at Castle Combe to return again in its usual Autumn slot.

Rallyday has confirmed that the eleventh edition of the Show will once again take place in the Autumn, running on Saturday 17 September 2011 at Wiltshire's Castle Combe Circuit.

Following the success of the special tenth anniversary Show, which attracted a record turnout of over 10,000 people and a 'Monster' line-up of cars and stars - including BP Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team driver Jari-Matti Latvala driving Ken Block's Monster WRT Ford Focus WRC, 1984 World Rally Champion Stig Blomqvist re-united with a host a priceless collection of ex-works Audi quattros and one of Britain's best current rally drivers, Guy Wilks, who was demonstrating the latest Skoda Fabia S2000 in superb style - organisers Brian Stubbings and Darin Frow have been busy planning and preparing for 2011's motorsport spectacular.

“Rallyday has been a terrific success over the past ten years and we are very proud at what we have achieved during that time,” Stubbings said. “We have had some great people come along and for 2010 had lots of different teams' and some fantastic displays, both out on the track and in the paddock. We certainly won't be resting on our laurels.

“We want to continue to develop the event's winning formula through 2011 and beyond, so we can carry on entertaining rally enthusiasts of all ages.

“We have some big plans for this year and are very excited about what we are aiming to do.”

Frow is also determined to make Rallyday 2011 another resounding success and build on everything that has been accomplished in the previous years.

“We really pulled out all the stops for our tenth Anniversary show and it was rewarding to see so many people enjoy the day,” he continued. “It was hard work but everything ran smoothly and we were delighted with the incredible line up of cars and stars that came along to help us mark our tenth anniversary, and all the great feedback we received from everyone.

“Each year the Rallyday goes from strength-to-strength and we are pleased now to be able to officially announce the date for 2011.”

Bookings for Rallyday 2011 are now open. Ticket prices remain held at 2010 levels. However, spectator tickets purchased before September 1st 2011 cost £13 per adult - a 35 percent discount compared to those purchased on the day, so pre-book and save yourself £7.00. Accompanied children under 16 can enter for FREE.
