Then there is the
Soapbox Challenge, which is a downhill race for gravity powered
cars. There are real-life replicas of the cars from the much-loved
Wacky Racers cartoon, and an air display featuring the Red Arrows
and other military jet aircraft.
There is also an
auto show called the Cartier Style et Luxe. Entry is normally
by invitation and there is some flexibility as to which types
of vehicle may enter, usually resulting in a more varied event
than the typical Concours d’Elegance.
Attending the Festival
of Speed can be about much more than just watching the races.
One can stay at the hotel, fly to and from the festival from
the airfield, or organise a corporate event or even a wedding.
There are a number of packages and combinations of options to
suit almost every taste and circumstance.
For Festival of Speed
offers and tickets it is always worth doing a little research,
visiting online forums, reading newspaper adverts and articles,
combing the ‘net for information and considering any corporate
packages or deals that may be available. Whilst it is a prestigious
event there are, as with most such activities, a range of options
and there will be something to satisfy most tastes – and
budgets. Find Festival of Speed offers online and via websites
such as those listed above.
