4 wheeled action

The track sprint for this year is 'CAR-NATIONS', showcasing some of the best cars from Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the USA and Japan.

Don’t miss Britain’s Aston Martin Vulcan, a Japanese 2004 Formula 1 BAR Honda and an American Stock Car from 1931.

As well as watching the car action, you can take a spin yourself – get a ride in a dream car like the Ferrari California 30, Lola T70 Spyder or Jaguar X J220 with the Sporting Bears.
