Race Retro 22-24 February 2019 Stonleigh Park

A slightly different Motorsport event to our usual, should anyone fancy an excuse for a fun-filled R3 weekend away or perhaps just visiting for the day. A few of us have already booked up and decided to travel down late Friday afternoon allowing us one full day at the show on the Saturday, before returning after a leisurely breakfast on Sunday.

Race Retro is billed as covering all aspects of historic motorsport, this show promises you stunning cars on display as well as breath taking live action, alongside the latest vehicles added to their auction line-up as well as a few famous faces joining them over the weekend, see here to find out more.
 
Ticket options start from just Ā£22.00. If like me, you enjoyed hours of senseless standing in fields and forests to watch the Lombard RAC Rally (as it was back in the day) enjoying the skills, sounds and the smell of burning Castrol R, you too could be transported back in time if only for a day.

Lots of hotel options around this area if you choose to stay over, one of which, the Citrus hotel is a fairly basic travelodge type hotel, Deb and I have booked to stay here again and it's not far away from the venue. It was clean and the food was good and above all excellent value for money.
 
 
Please note, PCGB won't have a stand at this venue this year, so why not take a flask - just like the good old days

    Hi All,
    Unfortunately I have to pull out of the trip this year due to work commitments.
    Have a great time.

    I hate to tell you Mike, but this year was awesome, shame you couldn't make it.
    This event just keeps getting bigger and better. Shame PCGB decided not to take part this year. The quality in the halls was a massive step up from last year, with a superb mix of classic and modern Porsches on display.
     
    Highlight of the weekend though had to be listening to John & Graeme's excitement as they compared their experience of flying around the Stoneleigh rally stage in a fantastic Group B 911SC and also meeting Tony Jardine, best known for his TV appearances on both the BBC's and ITV's Formula One coverage over the years and a real nice guy.

    Glad you all enjoyed it and great to hear it's growing as an event.
    It was my intention to have a go in a rally car this year especially staying for both days.
    I'll have to hear first hand from John and Graeme.
    Retirement beckons next year so will have a clear run at all the events.
    Did you manage an invite to the dancing last šŸ˜‰
