The most well-known car rally in the world will return to Banbury at the end of January after thousands of people packed the town centre in February last year. when the Rally used Banbury as a passage control stop.
“So many jobs and lives in Cherwell rely on the automotive and motorsport sector.
“Companies of all sizes exploit our strategic position in the UK and the rally once again finds Banbury the most desirable location to stop and share a bit of the excitement that follows it around.”
“The crowds lining the streets: the knowledgeable enthusiasts peering under bonnets and asking questions, the great show put on by the district council and the warm welcome from the town council, it was not a difficult decision to return to Banbury in 2019.”
The UK leg of the rally starts in Clydebank, Dunbartonshire at 6pm on Wednesday, 30 January 2019 ahead of the 1,500 mile rally to Monaco.
Cars taking part are set to start arriving in Banbury from late morning on Thursday, 31 January.
Cherwell District Council are organising the event locally with support from Banbury Town Council and are welcoming car owners to display their cars from 10am to entertain the crowds before the rally arrives at around 1:30pm on Thursday, 31 January.
Cllr Debbie Pickford, Cherwell’s lead member for Clean and Green, said:
“There were more than 100 classic cars in the town last year and the arrival of the Monte Carlo Rally was the only thing that could prise people from under car bonnets or away from chats with their owners.
“It is that enthusiasm and the knowledgeable crowd which makes the event so successful.
“It also coincides with market day, and with extra street food stalls we look forward to the town being a hive of activity.”
The stop will be a chance for the veteran vehicles to be serviced by Bicester’s Blue Diamond Riley Services and for the drivers and navigators to take a rest and eat.
Once again the day will begin with a display of classic and notable cars from major motorsport firms, local companies, classic car clubs and private owners.
The event will coincide with Banbury Charter Market which will include additional food stalls to help keep out the cold and sustain the crowds.
Date and time: Thursday, January 31, 2019 at 10 AM – 3:30 PM
