Roger Albert Clark Rally Sees Increased Overseas Interest

The 2010 instalment of the Roger Albert Clark Rally is attracting a large number of crews from outside of the United Kingdom, showing clearly that the event is held in high regard by those from foreign shores.

Within the world of Historic Rallying, the Roger Albert Clark is clearly standing out as a top class event, and the level of interest for this years running proves that.

Speaking of the overseas interest, rally manager Colin Heppenstall stated “The reputation of the rally is clearly getting out there and having foreign crews adds to the kudos of the event”.

Heppenstall seized the opportunity to speak of the volume of interest, saying “We’re having serious dialogue with 19 crews from outside the UK, including Belgium, France, Italy and Holland”.

To have all the interested crews lodging formal entries would be a coup for the event, as well as it’s hard working organisers.

“If we get ten entries from those 19 people, I’ll be overjoyed” added Heppenstall.

A number of overseas entrants have already been named, with the Regnier Sport Organisation entering no fewer than six crews.

Team boss Pascal Regnier will be joined by Arnaud Clause, Julian Ellebout and Bruno Lacroix, all at the wheel of a Ford Escort Mk2.

Also from RSO, will be Jean Pierre Ansiaux in Sunbeam Lotus and the Opel Kadett of Andre Lausberg.

RAC regulars Stefaan Stouf and Joris Erard will again enter their Escort Mk1 into the Pickering based event.
