Richard Burns Rally Collection

Post by CDM »

Rally Day Castle Coombe September 2018

As ever rally fans were heading for Rally Day. Unfortunately, the weather forecast said it would rain all day and but for a bit a of a break in the morning it did. The bad weather clearly had an effect on the cars attending and on people through the gates. It wasn’t the best Rally Day I have ever been to.

Miki Biasion and Elfyn Evans were the star drivers along with Jimmy McRae, Russell Brookes & Stuart Turner. There weren’t many new cars I had not seen before and there few Group B cars.

Along with Zeus (Dave C) we were on the Craven MC stand with Dave’s excellent Richard Burns model car tribute display. Remember Richard Burns first motor club was Craven MC whose members helped with his early development as a rally driver.

Amongst the display were around 12 unique models Dave has created, changing door plates etc from a standard product. The bad weather meant the display was tucked away at the back of the stand but the members liked what they saw.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed model was shown to Dave Richards a few years ago. Dave C had correctly put the different wheels on this one and Dave R asked if we knew why it had different wheels? Colin McRae had just moved to Ford and Richard was now with Subaru. Clearly a bit of rivalry for fastest time at GFS. So, the Prodrive team put a set of super stickies on to get one over McRae and it worked Richard beating Colin’s time on the day.

Pretty difficult to tell these days if cars are real or a mock up. Most of these are the real thing.

Looks like it was a great day out despite the rain. There's some great looking machinery there.
