September 20 & 21 at EventCity
Group B rally cars will be in full fire-breathing, tyre-smoking action at this year's Footman James Classic Car Show Manchester, this September 20 & 21 at EventCity, on a special demonstration stage at the show.
The Group B era gave us cars which are, to this day, possibly the most iconic ever to compete in world rallying. Several times daily at the show, Rallying with Group B will be bringing the power and spectacle of these cars, in full action, to a special demonstration stage which is absolutely free to view for every ticket-holder.
Along with the rally action at the show, you will see an incredible array of hundreds of cars, ranging right through the ages, from some of the earliest vehicles ever made, through pre-war motorcars, 50s, 60s, 70s classics and the 'future classics' or 'youngtimers' from the 80s and 90s.
Cars of all kinds. Famous marques and models - from outrageous supercars you may have dreamed owning when you were a child, to the family 'daily drivers' that you and yours fondly remember. British sports and saloons, American muscle cars, European thoroughbreds, sporting greats and more. Essentially, if you like cars (of any era), you'll absolutely love this!
It's a motoring nostalgia trip at its finest!
In addition to the hundreds of wonderful cars, the show also offers trade stands, restoration specialists and autojumble with classic car spares, restoration projects, memorabilia, and all sorts of automotive treasures.
Want to know more about working on your cherished cars? Thinking of taking on more than just changing the oil and inflating the tyres? Then come along and see the experts in action at the Restoration Workshop. Learn specialist techniques, meet Fuzz Townshend from TV's 'Car SOS' and pick up tips on how you can do it all yourself, properly!
Looking to get into classic car ownership? There are cars for sale and up to 100 clubs, who can give you all the information you could ever need about just about anything with four wheels. A great place to do your research and, maybe, find your dream car. . .
It's not all beautiful cars sitting still, either. . .
Just outside, there's rip-roaring live action on our live Rally Stage! Come and see some of the most iconic rally cars from the Group B era scream around our special course. Last year saw Group B rallying giants such as the Metro 6R4, Lancia Stratos, Porsche 911 and a fire-breathing SWB Audi quattro ripping up the asphalt and getting it seriously sideways! So popular last time, we're doing it all again!
Incredible cars, trade stands, cars for sale, specialists, the CodeClean concours competition, expert demonstrations, live action and a few more surprises, too. All wrapped up inside a superb modern venue, with great facilities and FREE Parking!
In short, The Footman James Manchester Classic Car Show, September 20 & 21 at EventCity offers motoring enthusiasts of all ages, a great day out.
