EXCITEMENT is building for the inaugural Network Q Rally Revival that promises to take fans on a trip down memory lane as it passes through North Wales and Cheshire.

The ceremonial start under the floodlights will take place on Friday night in front of the grandstands at Chester racecourse.

An eclectic entry list showcases a varied selection of cars and their crews stretching back 60 years.

The entrants will be flagged away by 1990 WRC ladies Champion Louise Aitken-Walker and 1985 RAC Rally winner Neil Wilson

Heading up the entry list are multiple BRC champion Jimmy McRae with Pauline Gullick alongside. They will be wheeling out the mighty V8 Firenza.

The top ten then takes on a real 1990’s theme with at two WRC star Nicky Grist in his ex Juha Kankkunen Celica GT4, with none other than reigning BRC champion Matt Edwards Alongside.

Other cars include a Subaru Legacy driven by Colin Mcrae and three Subaru Imprezas all carrying the famous 555 based livery.

The ceremonial start at Chester Racecourse on Friday (February 28) takes place from 6.30pm with first car due on podium at 7.30pm.

Saturday is a full day’s tour with demonstration stages at certain venues creating a feel very much like the traditional Sunday leg of the old Network Q Rally.

Visits to iconic venues and roads such as World’s End, Chirk Castle, Weston park, Rednal Circuit, Cholmondeley Castle and the Cheshire Race Circuit of Oulton Park, before a return to the racecourse and a gala dinner on the Saturday evening.
