New venture is ideal for beginners, those on a limited budget and visitors from overseas alike
The Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (HERO) is opening up this exciting branch of the hobby to even more enthusiasts by offering for hire seven fully equipped classic rally cars – including this TR6 – through its new programme, Arrive & Drive. Each car is owned by HERO, and was recently renovated to rally specifications with a view to competing in classic and historic endurance rallying and classic car tours.
The Arrive & Drive programme is believed to be the only scheme to offer classic rally equipped cars for rent on road events, and is a cost-effective solution to those wanting access to the ever-growing sport of classic and historic rallying, without having to invest in ownership due to budget or time constraints. ‘We believe we are the first to offer our own classic rally cars, which are maintained by our retained professional mechanics,’ said Peter Nedin, Events Director at HERO. ‘This is the perfect answer to enthusiasts outside the UK who want to compete on HERO events without having to ship cars, and for newcomers looking to start classic rallying on a limited budget.’
HERO’s next event will be the Scottish Malts scheduled for 6-10 September, and the detailed list of cars available on the Arrive & Drive scheme can be viewed at www. heroevents.eu. Alternatively, you can call the team on 01656 740275
