A celebrated annual event, Race Retro at Stoneleigh features some of the most iconic cars on the planet. This year’s event will celebrate its 40th anniversary of the ground-effects era in the Motor Sport Hall of Fame Live. Not to be missed will no doubt be the Lotus 79 which took Mario Andretti to the world championships and was the first car to take on this ground breaking technology back in 1978. You will also have an opportunity to view the Williams FW07 which saw Alan Jones win the championship in 1980, the Ralt 3 Martin Brundle raced against the late great Ayrton Senna in British F3 and the ex-Siegfried Stohr Chevron B48 F2, freshly restored by Steve Worrad Racing. If that’s not good enough, there will also be an autojumble, representatives for an array of car clubs, as well as trade stands and experts.
