Lee Masters, Show Director, said: “We’re all sad we can’t meet at Stoneleigh for Reis Race Retro but hopefully this online gathering will allow enthusiasts to share is some fantastic memories of the show, be it the motorsport legends they’ve met, the cars they’ve seen in action, or just the friends they’ve made.”
Other throwbacks include the 2016 meeting of rally drivers Russell Brookes and Chris Ingram when Russell challenged Chris to become the first Brit to win the FIA European Rally Championship in over 50 years. Chris won the title in 2019, 52 years after Vic Elford lifted the trophy.
