MINI WRC Team driver Dani Sordo has joined the line-up for The Rally Show at Cornbury Park this weekend. Just one week after its debut at Rally Italy, the Spaniard will demonstrate the brand new MINI John Cooper Works WRC, which was designed and built by Prodrive in Banbury. The eyes of the motorsport world will be on Cornbury Park’s 1.1-mile special Sstage as the MINI WRC makes its first appearance in the UK.

The Rally Show – a firm fixture on the motorsport calendar – is being held for the first time in Oxfordshire. Visitors will see an array of classic and modern rally cars on show, including the new M-Sport Ford Fiesta WRC, currently flying high in the World Rally Championship. It will be driven by World Rally star Henning Solberg (on Saturday 14 May) and newcomer Ott Tanak (on Sunday 15 May). S2000 driver Tanak impressed at Rally Italy last week, finishing seventh in a field of 18 World Rally Cars. Read More »

With the New Year well under way and the doors of Autosport International closed for another year, entries are starting to come in thick and fast for the Rally Show at Cornbury, which will run on the weekend of May 14/15. Cornbury Park was featured on BBC “Top Gear” on Sunday 30 Jan.

Apart from the venue itself and its 100 percent asphalt stage, new for 2011 among the rally events held over the weekend is the Ford Escort Challenge. This is open to Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts, whose drivers will compete to win the CG Neill ‘Austin Dobson’ Perpetual Trophy. Read More »

After four successful years of running The Rally Show at Chatsworth in Derbyshire, it has been mutually agreed that variations available from the estate roads to provide a suitable rally stage have been – for the time being, at least – exhausted. Thus the Rally Show at Chatsworth will not happen later this year. Instead, the Rally Show will run just once this year, at a new venue in Cornbury Park on 14/15 May. Read More »

Former sports car, rally and Formula 1 driver Vic Elford is the first star name to commit to appearing at the first Rally Show to be held at Cornbury Park, Oxfordshire, on 14/15 May 2011.

Now USA-domiciled, ‘Quick Vic’, as he was nicknamed, has a very impressive motorsport CV, the envy of many a current star. Having started out as a co-driver, a move across to the driving seat in 1961 saw the beginning of a legendary career which was to last for over 20 years. His first works drives were for Triumph, then Ford, with whom he distinguished himself on the Alpine Rally by winning the Touring category in 1964. But he moved to Porsche at the end of 1966.
