Included in the Rally Legends display will be some of the best-loved rally cars from bygone eras. These will be exhibited on the promenade on Saturday and then on the town’s central Mostyn Street on Sunday.
Adding to the attraction, these revered machines will also be part of a glittering parade fronted by four-time world rally champion Juha Kankkunen and his old co-driver Nicky Grist, who will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their epic victory with Toyota on the 1993 Network Q RAC Rally. Swede Kenneth Eriksson finished second that year in a Mitsubishi, with M-Sport founder Malcolm Wilson third for Ford.
Retro icons already confirmed for the display include a Lancia Stratos, Ford Escorts, Triumph TR7 V8s, Lancia Integrales plus a number of idols from the fabled Group B era such as MG Metro 6R4s, a Nissan 240 RS and a Renault 5 Maxi Turbo.

The online platform is the new global marketplace and information base for collector cars of all ages. The website provides free-to-list advertising as well as high-quality news, features and market analysis.
