Lombard Rally Bath 2023

October 20 @ 4:00 pm - October 21 @ 4:00 pm

Why Lombard Rally Bath?

Back in the 1970s and 1980s one sporting event in the UK stood out above all others in terms of spectator attendance – the Lombard RAC Rally. More people watched the rally than attended all football league matches put together that weekend! In the early 1970s the Rally had been based in Yorkshire for some while and the organising team wanted to take the base around the UK, so in 1976, the great honour of hosting the start and finish went to the City of Bath. The rally returned to Bath three more times over the next few years, in 2018 it was back and after that great success, it returns again, for the sixth year, in 2023.

The 2023 Event

This event is a tour with untimed special stages, set up to recreate exactly as they would have been on the iconic Lombard Rally in the 1970s and 1980s.

Lombard Rally Bath will continue in 2023, as in the last two years, repeating ‘Friday in the Dark’ the first UK rally demonstration event to incorporate stages in the dark. There is nothing like seeing spotlights from rally cars crisscrossing the sky, just like they did in period. The stages will again be held at Hengrove Park on the southern edge of Bristolthereby recreating a motorsport venue from the 1950s and 1960s.

Don’t forget – if you want to get even closer to the action, you can buy a rally car ride, just on the Rally Festival stage, or on the whole event – Memories are made of this!.
