Lombard Rally Bath is the brainchild of Tim Nash, who rallied in the 1970s, competing in three Lombard Rallies after following his hugely successful brother, Tony, into the sport. Their aim is to bring back Lombard to rallying and to recreate part of what the Lombard RAC Rally stood for in the 1970s and the 1980s. Lombard Rally Bath provides the opportunity to experience driving on long-lost rally stages in rally cars, and bringing those cars back to the areas that have not seen rally cars for many years. The UK’s premier historic rally recreation event celebrates the four years in the 1970s and 80s when Bath was the host town for the Lombard RAC Rally.

In addition to this brand new attraction for 2019, the event will also feature more than a thousand cars on display, the famous Complete Kit Car Hall, traders and jumblers, plus the Haynes International Motor Museum Live Workshop who will be filling their huge stand with some old, rare and expensive cars including a Ferrari 512 BB and a completely original, unrestored 1964 Mustang. They will also be stripping back an engine from a Lamborghini Countach. The multi-award-winning museum and visitor attraction will be celebrating 60 years of the iconic Mini with a fascinating stand and a cutaway Mini.
