Season's greetings at Race Retro

There was an air of excitement this year at Race Retro, the historic motor sport show at Stoneleigh Park, as it was the first opportunity for many of the clubs and competitors to catch up and discuss the forthcoming season.

Motor Sport hosted a champagne reception on the Friday evening where guests included eight-times Grand Prix motorbike champion ‘the Prince of Speed’ Phil Read and Italian ex-Formula 1 driver Bruno Giacomelli.

Outside, the live rally stage gave visitors a chance to see some great two- and four-wheeled action, with the likes of British Rally Champion Keith Cronin and Stig Blomqvist – in an ex-works Quattro – displaying the skills that have made them such a success. Full report, p115
