Trinity Hyundai rally of the midlands hits Hinckley streets
The roads and car parks surrounding Hinckley & Bosworth Council offices hosted a unique event recently when the Trinity Hyundai Rally of the Midlands staged a rally super special.
More than 70 specially-prepared rally cars were waved off by Civic dignitaries at the beginning of their 250 mile competition, the first mile of which was to take place in front of the Council head office.
“The Rally is unique in as much as it is the only occasion in the whole of Great Britain to use roads in a town centre for such a high speed event,” said event organiser, Peter Young of Creative Media Communications.
“This is the second year we have staged this event in Hinckley and our plans are already well in place to run the same competitive stage again next year,” he added.
Spectators, who turned up in their thousands, were able to enjoy two hours of high speed, tyre smoking action totally free of charge as part of the promotion of Hinckleys’ new Hyundai dealership in Coventry Road.
