Firle Place

About Firle Place

Firle Place will provide the beautiful setting for a glamorous day out with delicious local foods and drink. The drive up to Firle Place will provide the space to get up close to these speed machines and see how fast they can accelerate. Firle Place will be the backdrop to the scene and behind it you will be able to see how competitive they are at climbing the road up to the top of the Downs.

Rally Paddock

The largest of our three classes will celebrate 70 years of worldwide rally sport, including cars that have competed in such legendary events as Monte Carlo, East African Safari, Thousand Lakes and Britain’s own RAC Rally.

Under the patronage of Henry Gage, a committee of members of the International Rally Drivers Club will choose a selection of cars from modern-day World Rally Cars, through the omnipresent Subaru & Mitsubishi years, to the early days of the ‘Flying Finns’ in Mini Cooper, Saab and Escort - with particular attention on our two home-grown World Champions: Colin McRae and Richard Burns.

The Rally Paddock will invoke the sights and ambiance of a genuine ‘rally service area’. Meanwhile the over 2-mile rally stage demonstration course, starting at the main gates, will use estate roads then exit the park via through the village and along the chalk road before ending with a fantastic climb up to Firle Beacon. Truly a race to the Beacon!

Supercar Paddock

This paddock will be set against the sweeping vista that is Firle Estate, with the very best of modern supercars displayed, including alternative power models.

Not only will these vehicles be on display, but they will also be demonstrated over a standing quarter-mile sprint course, utilising the Estate's main driveway, four times a day, on both days.
