The UK's First and Premier Historic Rally Car Tour with untimed special stages.
A tour with untimed special stages, set up to recreate exactly as they would have been on the iconic Lombard Rally in the 1970s and 1980s. Come and join us to experience rallying as it was, but without the pressure!
Lombard Rally Bath will be reconfigured in 2021 to include two stages in the dark on Friday evening, run in the dark. One of the spectator attractions in period was seeing the spotlights on the cars flashing across the sky - that will be back. This will be before the return of our usual meet and greet evening, now held at Badminton School on the edge of the famous Durdham Downs in Bristol.
As 2021 is the 45th Anniversary of the inaugural start in Bath, we will celebrate the cars and characters that were involved at our usual Saturday night dinner
Entries are now open for 22nd to 24th October 2021. Email us below for more details. Join the 1976 Winning Co-driver, Stuart Pegg, who will be reunited with the Ford Escort RS1800 he shared on the event with the late, legendary Roger Clark, to run as in 1976 at number six, plus other drivers from that year, including Bror Danielsson who won the "showroom" Group 1 class that year in an Opel Kadett, who will travel over from Sweden. Geoff Twigg will drive the same Mini that he took part in the 1976 event in.
We will also be joined by former Ladies World Champion Rally Driver, Louise Aitken-Walker, amongst other star drivers.
We will kick off on Friday with a traditional rally "signing on", we hope to reinstate the Rally Forum in 2021, subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
The Saturday will see the cars tackling further venues, before returning to Badminton School, in all we will be running some fourteen stages. Lunch will be taken at the Great Tew Estate in the Cotswolds - a number of stages new to the event will be tackled in that area.
Watch out for our VIP Packages for the event! Including opportunities such as:
A ride in the co-drivers seat for the whole event,
Attendance at the Rally Dinner on Saturday Evening at the Marriott Royal Hotel, Bristol
A Hospitality Package to spectate at Great Tew and join the crews for lunch
Rent a Ford Escort Mk2, with pre-event tuition available (for an additional cost)
Would like to have a go but don't have a navigator? - we always have experienced co-drivers wanting "a ride" or maybe you have someone who would like to co-drive but is worried about making a mistake - don't worry, we will happily get one of the organising team to talk through the job of "the sack of potatoes" to help!
NEW FOR 2021 - SPECTATORS WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE FOR THEIR DRIVER OF THE DAY ON OUR NEWLY DEVELOPED APP. WATCH OUT FOR THE QR CODE AT THE SPECTATOR STAGES TO VOTE. WILL IT BE THE SMARTEST CAR, THE DRIVER WHO GET'S MOST SIDEWAYS, OR THE CAR WITH THE BEST ENGINE NOTE?
We look forward to welcoming many more entrants from outside the UK, as many were unable to travel previously due to travel restrictions. Act fast! We don't expect spaces to last long.
Our Saturday Evening Social Event will return to a formal dinner, held for 2021 only in the opulent surroundings of the Marriott Royal Hotel, College Green, Bristol.
