Return of the Supersaloons -special Vauxhall offer Ian Coomber, VBOA Chairman
Those of us of a certain age will remember with affection and awe the era of the Supersaloon - the DTV Repco Holden engined Vauxhall Firenza "Baby Bertha" driven by the legendary Gerry Marshall, the V8 DAF "Dafnee", Skoda V8, Boss Capri, Chevy VW Bug and many other equally exotic and brutal creations. The good news is that these awesome race cars, including many other big engined Vauxhalls, are again ready to rumble on Bank Holiday Monday, August 29th. Organised by the Classic Sports Car Club, the cars will be racing in anger once again at Mallory Park in Leicestershire, the "friendly circuit" as far as visitors are concerned but a real challenge for the 30 plus entries expected for this much anticipated event.
The good news is that you can be there and enjoy discounted entry. All occupants of the first 200 Vauxhall cars (of any age) to arrive at the circuit to spectate will get entry at £13 per person instead of the normal gate price of £15. Children under 16 get free entry. Free parking and paddock entry to see the cars and drivers at close quarters. Once the 200 figure is reached, entry will be charged at £15 per adult. Racing starts at 1.30pm and there is a full bill of support races.
This promises to be a great day out so get up early and make a nostalgic day of it!
