Sébastien Ogier began the defence of his FIA World Rally Championship crown with a fourth consecutive Rallye Monte-Carlo victory on Sunday afternoon.
Visitors to Cholmondeley will savour the eye-catching action as the stars and cars race against the clock around the stately home's challenging parkland tracks. They will also be treated to tyre-burning donuts, jumps, big screen coverage, commentary, supercar displays, Supermoto racing, a tribute to supercars from the fearsome Group B era, a catering village, trade stands, mini tanks, funfair plus a host of other attractions including an autograph and selfie session with all the top drivers.
This stage is our first visit to England since 1999. Having run plenty of events of this nature in recent years, Cholmondeley Castle is well versed in getting fans in and out with minimum fuss and maximum fun. By no means the longest stage on the route, but potentially wet, leafy asphalt can be as tricky as any forest road. And where else do you get the chance to see a donut, eat a doughnut and grab an autograph from a still sweaty Sébastien Ogier?
