RREC Rally Day 3: Sunday 23rd June

Judging of the cars commences today at 10.15am and there is nothing more spectacular than the sight of these cars lined up in their positions ready for extreme scrutiny!

True to tradition we will be expecting the annual flypast with a visit overhead from a Hurricane! The Hawker Hurricane was at the forefront of Britain’s defense in World War II and played a major part in achieving victory.

As always, there will be plenty of live music throughout the weekend courtesy of John Timms and his Jazz Band and the Yarwell and Nassington Britannia Brass Band on Sunday.

The Rolls-Royce and Bentley Specialists’ Association (RRBSA) is generously gifting a free umbrella (although let’s hope for sun, not rain!) to every pre-booked rally visitor. You will find a voucher enclosed in your rally pack to the IntroCar marquee or any other RRBSA member trade stand (look for the RRBSA flags!)

Throughout the weekend, Burghley House is open to visitors for viewing tours, and it really is a very special piece of British history so make sure you save yourself some time to go!

This year the Rally organisers are committed to making the event as environmentally friendly and eco-aware as possible. All waste will be recycled where possible so please help the organisers by disposing of waste responsibly. IntroCar will have a water cooler on site and will be giving away re-useable water bottle or travel mug gifts with every order throughout the weekend. The onsite caterers will also be offering members 20p off hot drinks when they use a reusable cup!

For all those who wish to attend but haven’t yet got ticket: DON’T PANIC! You can turn up and pay on the gate.. so come and join!

We hope to see you there and look forward to welcoming you to our Marquee where we will be hosting a number of technical seminars and new product announcements around all the other activity taking place throughout the weekend.

Happy Motoring!

The IntroCar Team 🙂
