A collection of classic rally cars driven by some of the biggest names the sport has known will entertain crowds at an international motorsport show in Warwickshire next month.

A special event as part of the third International Historic Motorsport Show at Stoneleigh Park on February 24 to 26.

The event will include Bjorn Waldegard, the 1979 FIA World Rally Champion, driving an exworks 1980 Fiat 131 Abarth and two-time British Rally champion Russell Brookes driving a Opel Manta 400, the same type of car he won his second British title in.

Stephen Davies, from organisers Slowly Sideways, said: "The cars are the real stars. Slowly Sideways is all about preservation of these genuine rally cars.

"We don't want them just sitting in museums; we aim to see them brought out of storage and used.

"Our display at the Historic Motorsport Show will be heavily supported by mechanics, many of whom were the cars' mechanics in their day. They are just as keen as anyone to see these cars in action."

As well as rally display, the show will also feature an indoor classic motorcycle trial, championship-level autotests, and historic kart racing.

Advance tickets for the show cost £15 for one day or £28 for two days, with accompanied children under 16 free. On-the-day prices are £18 for one day or £30 for two days.

Tickets can be booked by calling the hotline on 08450 70 68 70 or historicmotorsportshow.com
