Mitsubishi Motors UK has announced that it will be supporting the forthcoming Rally Super Car Day at Castle Combe Racing Circuit on 16th August, an event that brings together motor sport enthusiasts and performance car owners for eight hours of pure indulgence.
2003 sees the third running of this spectacular occasion. Now promoted by its own organising team, the event was originally set up in 2001 in conjunction with the Mitsubishi Lancer Register, a club for owners of Mitsubishi’s now legendary and highly successful saloon car - in all its various forms.
Because of the connection and, with Castle Combe only a few miles from its Cirencester headquarters, Mitsubishi Motors became involved with the Rally Super Car Day right from the outset.
Each year the show gets increasingly popular and encourages some of the big names in motor sport to attend. Works Mitsubishi WRC driver, Alister McRae, is scheduled to make his second appearance this year, as are Stig Blomqvist and Gwyndaf Evans.
Commencing at 9.00 am the event features a number of attractions, such as Russ Swift performing amazing precision driving stunts in a Mitsubishi Evolution.
There will be the opportunity for the public to see what rallying is like for real, with high-speed rides on a special stage. The event will also feature a host of trade stands, car club displays and 100ís of performance cars of various makes and configurations.
By far the most subscribed to activity will be the opportunity for many of the Supercar owners to drive their pride and joy around the famous 1.85 mile circuit. For the more serious amongst them there is a showcase rally stage that takes place on part of the track - always a big favourite with spectators.
Mitsubishi Motors UK will be endorsing its support with a colourful display of its latest vehicles along with the sensational road going Evolution VIII. Mitsubishi’s motor sport heritage will also be on show, with the appearance of a 2002 WRC car and Group N Lancer Evolution VII.
Tickets for the day cost £8 for adults and accompanied children get in free. For further information about the Rally Super Car Day visit: www.rallyday.comPublished 9 August 2003
