VISITORS to this year's Bradford Classic & Performance car show will get an early taste of next year's tenth anniversary special event with over 30 classic rally cars on display in City Park.

Next year, Bradford Council, working with its partners, will bring some of the rarest world rally cars together to celebrate the anniversary of Bradford's annual car show.

Over 100 classic rally cars will illustrate the history of world rallying by recreating one of the Cartel rally stages held in Bradford in 1987.

Most of the vehicles will be powerful and innovative Group B rally cars which were so fast, some could accelerate faster than Formula 1 cars of the day.

This year's show is in City Park tomorrow, but next year it will be held in Bowling Park on August 16.

Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, the portfolio holder for culture, said: "We are delighted to announce this very exciting news.

"This is a major coup for Bradford and will attract visitors from all over the UK.

"Events like the Bradford Classic & Performance are part of a package of events and investments designed to support the growth of our local economy.”

llr Andrew Thornton, the executive member for environment and sport, said: "Over 200,000 people have enjoyed the Bradford Classic since its inception.

"We have taken pride in bringing some of the rarest cars to Bradford including Formula One, Le Mans and rally classics."
