Race Retro international historic motorsport show 2010
Race Retro, the international historic motorsport show, is lining up a cracking array of motorsport legends for its 2010 show – from racing cars and drivers to track bikes and riders.
Held at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry, from 12th to 14th March 2010, Race Retro will be celebrating all things Alfa Romeo with a stunning display of vehicles and some leading Alfa drivers appearing including Italian racing driver Bruno Giacomelli. Bruno participated in over 80 Grand Prix races from 1977 through to 1990 and spent many years at the wheel of the Alfa Romeo 179/182 F1 car.
As part of the celebration, organisers have invited Alfa Romeo clubs and owners to exhibit their marque in a dedicated hall as well as having specialist Alfa restorers, race teams and engineers on hand to answer all your questions.
Outside visitors can enjoy all the high octane action on the Live Rally Stage over the weekend. One of the most popular features of the show, this year’s course has been redesigned and moved closer to the action inside the show to make sure visitors don’t miss any aspect of the event.
To tie into the Live Rally Stage, there will also be a special tribute to the Audi Quattro, one of the most iconic cars of the 80s and the first rally car to take advantage of the change in rules which allowed the use of four-wheel drive in competition racing.
For those who prefer two wheeled racers, there will be a tribute to 60 years of Norton with racers on hand to talk about the bikes’ finest hour. Expect to be rubbing shoulders with Peter Williams, Phil Read MBE, John ‘Mooneyes’ Cooper, Trevor Nation and Keith Heckles, who will be talking with Race Retro motorcycle MC Steve Parrish.
If all this inspires you to invest in a competition car or motorcycle of your own then visit the H&H Classic and Historic Motorsport Auction, which will have an amazing range of rare and desirable cars, bikes and memorabilia on offer. Add to this hundreds of trade stands, the popular Ken Fox Wall of Death and a host of other names yet to be announced, and it looks like it’s going to be a winner.
