Over 50 vehicles entertained on track during the day with cars driven in their past by rally greats such as Ari Vatanen, Hannu Mikkola and of course Colin McRae. The track was expertly looked after by the knowledgeable team from Broughton-Bretton Motor Club. A big highlight of each session was a Supermoto demonstration handled by Chester based Supermoto UK, the riders performing unbelieveable antics on their machines.
Bryn Pierce, Event Director ‘’We are delighted that so many people joined us at the start of this new journey and wish to thank the public, entrants, exhibitors and marshalls alike. Lots for us to look at for next year but the overwhelming feedback has been very positive so we shall look to build on that’’
Of course the day wasn’t just about on track, trade stands and a large craft fair graced the entrance to the event, whilst the Oak Tree paddock was the scene of car clubs and charitable group Sporting Bears who gave Supercar rides in return for a donation, the proceeds of which went to The Hope House hospice, who will be receiving over £1800 from the day.
