Summer Action for Closewood’s Cars
The Closewood Vauxhall powered Classic Mini can be seen in action this weekend on Sunday 19th June at the Gurston Down speed hill climb, on the outskirts of Salisbury.
The Closewood Subaru Impreza Rallycross car makes its debut appearance at Pembrey Rallycross circuit on the weekend of 2nd and 3rd July, the team taking the massive leap from two-wheel drive to the immensely powerful 4 wheel drive class.
The Mini will be making another appearance, this time at the home of British Rallycross, at the Kent circuit, Lydden Hill. This event takes place on the August bank holiday Monday and is the most popular round of the British Rallycross calendar.
