The Irishman, who will drive his own MG Metro 6R4 on September 21, is the first of a host of legends to be named for the Castle Combe event.
Alister might not have as many British Rally Championship titles as his father, Jimmy, but he outscores him convincingly in terms of FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship crowns (he’s got two: the 1999 F2 award and the outright series win in 2011).
Alister is really looking forward to making the trip back to the UK from Western Austrailia for this year's Rallyday event.
Father to both Alister and Colin, a Rallyday veteran and an incredibly successful rallying legend in his own right, Jimmy McRae will also return for 2019’s instalment.
The five-time BRC champ commented: “Rallyday’s a special event and we always get a warm welcome. It’ll be great to share that with Alister. The team are lining up some interesting cars for us, which will be great – just as long as mine are faster than his!”
