Leeds - RAC International Historic Rally 1996

Information Sheet One

Following the change of format for the Network Q RAC Rally, the 1996 Leeds RAC International Historic Rally will now follow the same route as the modern event on both Saturday and Sunday.

This should provide an excellent days motorsport for all concerned. The event, which is once again based in the City of Leeds, will start with 2 runs over a 2.74 mile stage at Croft and will then pick up the best of the modern rally route featuring fifty miles of forest stages running through the north of England before returning via the 'Super Special' at Croft to Leeds for the overnight halt.

On Sunday the historic cars will leave early in the morning and precede the Network Q RAC Rally though some of its traditional Sunday spectator stages - Beechdale Saab Clumber Park, Donington and the LEEDS stage at Temple Newsam before returning to the finish on The Headrow in Leeds. Competitors will have the opportunity to tackle almost 100 stage miles during the course of the weekend.

The Leeds RAC International Historic Rally is Britain's round of the FIA European Historic Rally Trophy and is open to cars registered before the end of December 1971 which comply with Appendix K of the FIA Year Book.
