A new venue and our first trip to the Rally Show since 2008, (due to clashes with other events). Cornbury Park provided a superb venue and an interesting stage at just over a mile. The only thing really missing would be a watersplash but otherwise it was an excellent choice of venue.

Simon Mauger took the honours after 4 elimination rounds and a final head to head. What a great format and surely a potential format to bring new fans into the sport! Read More »
