BULLS have announced the return of the Mintex Rally Yorkshire to Odsal Stadium - in conjunction with stock car promoters Yorstox.

On Saturday, April 9, the historic rally cars taking part in Mintex Rally Yorkshire tackle a short demonstration stage at Odsal Stadium, using entry roads and the oval stock car track.

After a short stop, they will tackle the same route again.

Look out for Yorkshire legend rally drivers Bob Bean and John Midgley, driving Ford Escort and Porsche 911 respectively.

They will be joined by other amazing cars recalling the ‘Golden Years of Rallying’, such as the Austin Healey 3000, Minis, Saab 96, Hillman Imp, Lancia, Talbot Sunbeam, many Ford Escorts and others.

The first car should arrive soon after noon.

Mintex Rally Yorkshire is one of a series of historic rally car demonstration events run around the UK, since 2018, by the Lombard Rally organisation.

They cater for rally cars, many of which are too valuable to be driven on competitive rallies, or whose drivers no longer want to drive at full competitive speeds.

Mintex Rally Yorkshire is based at Harrogate Rugby Club, the route taking them first to Church Fenton, where some six runs around Leeds East Airport will be tackled, before coming to Odsal and then moving north, all within Yorkshire.

Mintex Rally Yorkshire recalls the legendary Mintex Seven Days Rally of the 1970s, organised locally by De Lacy Motor Club.

That was one of the toughest UK rallies, attracting drivers from all over the world, but as a more social weekend.
