Leading rally preparation company, Rally Prep, is delighted to be supporting the inaugural running of the Network Q Rally Revival later this month.
Taking place on the 28th and 29th February at Chester Racecourse, the Network Q Rally Revival will see a number of Rally Prep customers covering a 200-mile route including recreations of nostalgic special stages at venues synonymous with classic RAC rallies of old.
Demonstration rallies are gaining immense popularity around the world, offering drivers the opportunity to fully extend their competition cars in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, putting on an exciting show for the spectators in a safe and controlled environment.
With huge motorsport festivals such as Rally Legends in San Marino creating a global following, the Network Q RAC Rally will bring the same sense of occasion and atmosphere to the UK. Chester Racecourse, the scene of Colin McRae’s historic World Rally Championship victory in 1995 provides an iconic location for the ceremonial start.
Led by Neil Yates and his team of experienced motorsport technicians, Rally Prep has built its reputation on preparing cars for the stages. Whether the surface is gravel, bumpy Irish and Manx asphalt or the smooth tarmac of European closed roads, Rally Prep will prepare a car that is strong, safe, reliable and competitive.
The company’s BMW M3 expertise means it can build an M3 to perfectly match the period correct homologated specification, while utilising specialist parts manufactured to modern tolerances to maximise performance and reliability. Rally Prep has spent years recreating and developing parts for these iconic machines, in doing so gathering a full range of precision manufactured components to build stunning Group A BMW E30 M3 rally cars.
Neil Yates, owner and founder of Rally Prep, said: “At Rally Prep we live and breathe E30 M3s: we’re die-hard enthusiasts of what is arguably BMW’s greatest ever M-car – and our passion is matched by our expertise. Our builds cater for everything from full FIA Appendix K vehicles with Historic Technical Passports through to a modern specification development featuring sequential gearbox and the latest motorsport hardware to take on – and beat – the best of the modified Mark II Ford Escorts.
“When we build a car, be it for motorsport or road use, we include the owner in every step of the process so that it perfectly meets their requirements. We keep base E30 M3s in stock ready for build so if a client doesn’t have a suitable car to use as a starting point we can normally help out. There are a limited number of build opportunities remaining for this year and we’re encouraging interested rally enthusiasts and competitors to get in touch to discuss their potential projects and secure a 2020 reservation.”
