GAYDON (BRITISH MOTOR MUSEUM) The HRCR (Historic Rally Car Register) Open Day on 16 January 2016 at the British Motor Museum, (formerly known as the Heritage Motor Centre), will look back 50 years at the controversy created by the Mini on the 1966 Monte Carlo Rally.

The Open Day will also celebrate the Minis continued success and popularity in historic rallying today.However, it’s not all about Minis! Historic rallying is open to all makes and models of classic cars manufactured before January 1986 and the HRCR support five different forms of historic rally events and championships that offer something for everyone – from the Scenic Tours Series, Clubmans Road Rallies, Speed Series Hill Climbs/Sprints and ‘Old Stager’ Stage Rallies as well as the Premier Championship.

The event is very much a social gathering where visitors can see the cars and meet the event organisers covering every facet of historic rallying. Entry to the Open Day is free. The event runs from 10am – 4pm, but please note that the Museum itself is closed for refurbishment and the event is run in its function space and grounds.
