In line with HERO-ERA’s policy of encouraging the young and newbies into the sport, a compact one day starter event will reward younger teams with a free entry!

Based at the epicentre of Historic Motoring, Bicester Heritage, there is scrutineering, registration from 8am, then a drivers briefing and a quick tutorial for new people and anyone who needs a refresher.

A great afternoon of classic car rallying around the Bicester area will starting and finish at the HERO-ERA headquarters, starting with a test on the onsite Test Track before heading out to find the best roads that Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire can offer.

With four regularities on these fantastic roads, crews will need to be on their toes to win the second ever Rally for the Ages, with one more run on the onsite Test Track to round off the day, both driver and navigator will finish with a smile on their face whether they are lucky enough to take home a trophy or not.

HERO-ERA’s Arrive & Drive fleet of classic rally cars are available to hire for the totally carbon neutral event, as all emissions on all HERO-ERA events are offset through the NET-HERO carbon offset programme.

The HEROICS café will be open for competitors to purchase lunch and refreshments throughout the day and The Wriggly Monkey Brewery will be open after the event for celebrations and commiserations alike.

*Crews with a combined age of less than 70 years at the time of the rally will be eligible to a full refund of the entry fee provided they start the event.
