The ‘Voice of Rally’, Scotsman Colin Clark, will be at the Rally Retro Festival in 2021 to soak up the Australian history of his favourite motorsport.
Calendared for Saturday, February, it will again be held at the METEC Driver Education Centre in Bayswater in Melbourne.
Architect of the event Rob Cranston said: “The event’s reputation is building so fast. This year we attracted cars from four states and spectators from Sydney and Brisbane. The unique format allows the owners to have fun in the cars and we get to enjoy seeing them doing what they were made for.”
Despite the current woes of the world, Cranston is confident the 2021 Rally Retro will be bigger than this year.
“We’re building on each year and we have plans for 2021 that will further engage rally fans. We can’t wait to open the gates come February 27.”
Rally Retro invites rally cars from the 1950s up to the early 2000s, all in period livery and often restored to better than new.
Many of the cars invited to display and ‘get on the track’ are winners of national and international rallies, but rarely ever seen these days. Cars like Austin Healey, Mini Cooper S, Ford Escort, Datsun Stanza, Renault Alpine, Audi Quattro, Datsun 1600, Triumph TR7 and Toyota Celica, all looking as they did in rallies ’back in the day’.
