ONE hundred classic cars will compete in the biggest Throckmorton Challenge to date on Saturday at RAF Pershore.
The fourth running of the event in the village, organised by the Historic Endurance Rallying Organisation (HERO), has attracted unusual entries.
They include Ben Williams’ Porsche 944, a rare pre-production prototype manufactured in 1981, and Michael and Richard Moss’ 1965 Fiat 2300S, which rallied in the 1960s.
Other entries include Minis, Porsches, MGBs, Escorts, Volvo Amazons, TRs, Jaguars, an Austin Healey Lenham Sprite, Ford Anglia, Triumph Vitesse, NSU Sport Prinz and a VW Beetle.
Crews will tackle more than 15 tests and other regularity sections on the airfield and through the countryside.
World Rally Championship co-driving ace Fred Gallagher has entered the challenge, which is a qualifying round for the 2013 HERO Cup as well as other competitions, with his wife Hayley.
There will be a training and briefing day involving 60 participants tomorrow.
