HISTORIC RALLY FESTIVAL RETURNS IN 2022
- Historic Rally Festival to return on the 15th and 16th October 2022
- Weston Park to host additional dusk and evening stages on the Saturday
- Rally HQ remains in Telford with full support of Telford and Wrekin Council

This year’s Historic Rally Festival was such a huge success, the organisers are delighted to announce its return on the weekend of 15th and 16th October 2022.
Moving to a slightly later date in the year has allowed the organisers, Rallying History, to introduce a new element to the event, dusk and evening stages which will be held on the Saturday evening at Weston Park.
As the only Motorsport UK permitted multi-venue rally, the Sunday will be opened up to further venues with additional stages and these will be announced in the new year.
Warner Lewis, Rallying History Event Organiser commented: “It was a massive undertaking to get this event off the ground this year, but we were all delighted with the feedback and 2022 will see us take the event to the next level with the introduction of some new features.”
Telford and Wrekin Council who were big supporters of the event have also confirmed the use of their facilities for the Service Park and live scrutineering in the heart of the town.
The 2021 event was so well received, that it has been selected as one of the three finalists in the Historic Motoring Awards for Motoring Spectacle. The winners will be announced on the 25th November at a ceremony held at RAC Club in Pall Mall, London.
Warner continued: “We were shocked to hear the nomination but are so honoured to have been considered, especially as it was our first year. A huge thank you to everyone involved, the venues, sponsors, marshals, officials, Motorsport UK and all other volunteers. Without them we would not have made this event happen. Thank you, and we look forward to the 25th.”
Jennifer Astbury, Head of Estate Operations commented: “We are delighted that the Historic Rally Festival will be returning to Weston Park next year. I know that Rallying History will be looking to add new elements into the rally including exciting dusk and evening stages. The team here at Weston Park wish Rallying History the best of luck at the Historic Motoring Awards – it is wonderful achievement that they have been nominated – and we are keeping everything crossed!”
Rallying History will be present at the upcoming Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the NEC Birmingham where they will be promoting next year’s event. If you are there, please pop along and see them in Hall 3 Stand 160.
