Reis Race Retro, Europe’s number one historic motorsport show, secured a ‘podium finish’ with enthusiasts who braved the inclement weather over the weekend and hailed the 2020 event ‘the best ever.’
With over 140 rally cars in action, a stellar line-up of celebrity drivers and guests, over 24,200 attendees visited Warwickshire’s Stoneleigh Park for the annual celebration.
Show Director Lee Masters said: “We are thrilled with the feedback we have seen so far on the show and thank all those who continue to support this great event, including our new headline sponsor Reis Motorsport Insurance.”
Making his show debut, French World Rally Champion Didier Auriol was just one of the guests appearing on the Reis Live Stage, hosted by Gemma Scott. European Rally Champion Chris Ingram, F1 driver Martin Donnelly, Le Mans racer Andy Wallace, and former McLaren F1 mechanic Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestley were also interviewed to name a few.
On Saturday and Sunday, visitors enjoyed the high-octane action on the two Live Rally Stages with over 140 Group B and WRC cars in action under the watchful eye of Rallying with Group B.
Inside the halls, the Reis Pride of the Paddock competition was won by Paul Boscott’s 1967 Lotus Elan Plus 2 with Brian Betteridge’s 1988 Ford RS200 in second place and Jim Angliss’ modified 1967 Ford Anglia 105E in third.
Richard Morley, Broking Director at Reis Motorsport Insurance, commented: “The show celebrates all that is great about the motorsport community and there is truly something for every enthusiast to enjoy. It was our first year as headline sponsor and a fantastic way to kick start the season for us.”
