We attended the Rally show last month and despite it being very well organised and with massive support, it did lack numbers.

The show had been run in the first 4 years at chatsworth in Derbyshire, it was moved to a new venue for this years event to Cornbury park and it was also the UK debut for both the Ford RS and Mini World rally cars, as well as stars such as Henning Solberg and Dani Sordo appearing.

Show boss Malcolm Neill said in a statement that, “The recent Rally show at Cornbury park failed to meet out financial expectations due mainly to the low attendance of spectators, despite a very active promotional campaign and the high quality of participants, including the first UK showing of the Ford and Mini WRC. We very much regret this situation and would like to thank our competitors and spectators who have supported the event for the past five years”.
