Solberg To Star in UK’s Rallyday show

Petter Solberg will attend the Rallyday exhibition event in the United Kingdom on August 18.

Solberg, currently second in the race for the 2012 FIA World Rally Championship powered by Nokia, will demonstrate a Ford Fiesta RS WRC at the behest of team sponsor Castrol Edge.

He follows in the footsteps of Ford drivers past and present, including Mikko Hirvonen, Jari-Matti Latvala and Matthew Wilson, by attending the popular showcase, which is based at the Castle Combe racing circuit near Bristol in southwest England.

Several other leading names from rallying will also be in attendance, while a number of iconic cars will be on display and performing demonstration runs.

“Everybody knows how passionate I am about this sport, and to be surrounded by so many legendary cars and drivers will just be awesome,” said Solberg, the 2003 world champion. “I also can’t wait to put on a spectacular show for the fans in my Ford Fiesta RS WRC. It looks like being a really fantastic day.”

Joint event organiser Brian Stubbings said: “We are delighted that Petter Solberg will be at Rallyday 2012. We know that Rallyday will provide him a great backdrop to entertain spectators with his flamboyant driving outside the normal pressures of competition within the WRC.”
