You can realise your classic dreams, with a little help from HERO.


The Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (HERO) is now offering to all classic car enthusiasts a one-stop-shop for all your needs. Whether you are looking for a highly competitive event, a more sedate classic car tour, car hire, and specialist storage or for that elusive part, HERO can help.

Have you always wanted to compete on a classic car event but don’t have a suitable car? Do you own a concourse car but would love to compete on Le Jog? Then HERO has a range of vehicles for hire to suit. Drivers can collect cars from the storage centre in South Wales, or cars can be delivered and collected to or from events. Available for immediate hire are the following models; 1967 Mini Cooper S, 1969 MGB Roadster, 1971 Alfa Romeo GTV Bertone, 1969 Lancia Fulvia Zagato, 1981 two-door Range Rover. A 1968 Porsche 911 will be available later in the year.

Each car is fully equipped ready to compete and comes with a tripmeter, Poti, Romer, stop watches, map lights, clip board, pens, pencils, clipboard, first aid kit, ground sheet and more. HERO can also offer the ideal location and conditions to store your classic car, at its fully-secure, heated, indoor facility in South Wales, where the following services are available:

• Full wash on arrival and each time the car returns from an event
• Vehicle kept in a “ready to go” condition with battery, tyres and fluid levels checked and topped up each month
• Car started twice a month
• 24 hour CCTV recording and remote monitoring
• Retained mechanic
• Insurance cover

HERO can arrange for your car to be collected or delivered anywhere within the UK and special transport arrangements can usually be made for overseas clients.

All HERO’s events also benefit from on-event mechanics with classic car knowledge and experience who are there to help overcome any mechanical problems encountered during the event. If something unforeseen develops that requires specialist parts or repair facilities HERO can make all necessary arrangements.
