Oulton Park's season will end with the now-traditional Neil Howard Stage Rally, the opening round of the 2017-18 Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship in association with MSVR. This popular end-of-year event will feature an impressive selection of rally cars on track competing into the dark, before
eyes turn towards the skies for a bonfire and mega fireworks display.
The rally will feature everything from bespoke World Rally Championship specials such as the Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evo, to cult favourites including the Ford Escort, taking to a series of event-specific stages and circuit configurations. The route will feature sections of the venue's access roads too, creating a different spectacle to everything that has come before during the year.
An addition to Oulton Park in 2016 was the new grandstand at Knickerbrook, which for this event will afford great views of the water splash at this year's special stage rally in November.
