Rally Show reverts to one venue

No Chatsworth Rally Show in 2011, but Cornbury Park event remains on.

The Rally Show at Chatsworth will not take place this year, organisers have confirmed today.

“After four successful years of running The Rally Show at Chatsworth in Derbyshire, it has been mutually agreed that variations available from the estate roads to provide a suitable rally stage have been - for the time being, at least – exhausted,” read a statement to the press.

“Thus the Rally Show at Chatsworth will not happen later this year. Instead, the Rally Show will run just once this year, at a new venue in Cornbury Park on 14/15 May.”

Speaking about the decision, Malcolm Neill, the event director, explained: “It is sad that we seem to have used all the possible combinations at Chatsworth. Last year, we had to use a stretch of artificial metal road to make the course viable, which is not really the kind of thing you would normally encounter on a rally.

“We want the Rally Show experience for our competitors, participants and spectators to be totally authentic.”

The Rally Show provides an exciting mix of actual rally events, demonstrations of rally cars both old and new, and static displays of cars. In addition, there are personalities from rallying's past and stars of today, all of whom join in the activities.

Away from the actual rally stage, with its almost continuous action over the two days, there are plenty of other things to do, such as getting behind the wheel of a trials car, having a meal, or taking the family to the fairground.
