Glorious Goodwood

Festival of Speed founder, Lord March, enjoying some
light gardening in preparation for the 2011 FoS
It takes a special amount of determination to get any motorsport event off the ground, and the metaphorical blood sweat and tears to make it successful. Since 1993, the Goodwood Festival of Speed has highlighted that the team at Goodwood have got the determination and are not afraid to put the work in to make it the amazing event that the UK really can be justifiably proud of.

The UK debut of the ferrari FF will be a highlight of the Moving Motor Show
It's not just the hill climb up Lord March's driveway that makes The Festival (or FoS) so successful. The concept of an invitational competition featuring the most diverse entry list ever (everything from a 1911 grand prix racer to the very latest F1 car), driven by over 100 of the biggest names in the sport not just in the UK but world wide. If anything, it's what happens away from the hillclimb that makes it such a special event. The British Motor Show may be a memory now, but FoS has taken over it's place as the de-facto motor industry event. The Moving Motor Show in particular features many manfactcuers taking part and showing off their wares - and this year is only it's second!
Flying motorcycles are sure to be a hit

Then you have the things for the kids, the Wacky Races, the Stunt riders (whoever thought about having the brilliantly talented Dougie Lampkin ride around the festival wherever he liked was inspired!), the air displays. It's a great way to show off our sport and celebrate all that's good about motoring and motorsport.

It's so successful that the concept has been taken further with events like the Chomondley Pagent of Power appearing recently. And that's got to be a good thing. This year FoS will bring National Motorsport Week to a close in spectacular style. And if these events help build interest in the sport we love, well... long may they continue!

See Croft from the hot seat!

What a great idea for National Motorsport Week - Fast laps around an international racing circuit, and for only £2 a go! We'd certainly recommend heading for croft this weekend. Don't forget that there's loads going on during this year's National Motorsport Week - Check out for more info, and get out there and give something a go!
Croft Circuit is joining the likes of the Red Bull and McLaren Formula 1 teams in hosting a special event to celebrate the forthcoming National Motorsport Week (25 June to 3 July).
Public will be able to attend Croft between 10.00am-4.00pm on Friday 1 July and taken for an exhilarating high-speed passenger lap of the track by a qualified race instructor in a Caterham sportscar.
The minimum age for laps is 14 years and all Croft is asking in return is a £2 donation per ride towards its chosen 2011 charity, St Teresa’s Hospice in Darlington. Rides are strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
Backed by the Motor Sports Association (MSA), the UK’s governing body of motor sport, and the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), National Motorsport Week (25 June-3 July) exists both to highlight the UK’s on-going world-leading role in all areas of international motor sport as well as to showcase the wide range of opportunities open to enthusiasts at grass roots level throughout the country. A huge range of activities are taking place throughout the land with all UK-based F1 teams opening their doors for public tours. More details can be found at

“It is hugely important that, as the region’s leading motor sport venue, we are involved in what is regarded as the country’s week of celebrating and raising awareness of what the sport gives back to people in terms of entertainment, inspiration for youngsters, job creation and even advancements in science. Motor sport is one of Britain’s most successful industries after all,” commented Tracey Morley, Croft Circuit Manager.

“What we are offering is a very exciting opportunity for both fans but also newcomers to the sport to experience just why so many professional racing drivers describe this as one of the most thrilling circuits to drive in the country. We’re putting this on absolutely free – all we ask in return is a small contribution to St Teresa’s to aid them in their fabulous work for the community.”
Meanwhile huge numbers of people filed through Croft’s main gate Last Sunday (19 June) for the region’s annual round of the UK’s premier motor racing series, the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. Honda driver Matt Neal won twice to consolidate his championship lead but rising star Mat Jackson took victory in the day’s third race in his Airwaves Ford Focus to keep up the pressure on Neal in the title battle. Among those keenly rooting for Jackson were the 20 members of the Croft Supporters Club – selected to meet him for an exclusive tour of his pit garage on the Friday evening. Earlier that day, some 30 pupils from the Highcliffe Primary School in Guisborough also attended Croft’s race paddock as VIP guests for a behind-the-scenes look at the BTCC, ‘Q&A’ sessions with some of the star drivers and even the chance to sit in a touring car.
Croft’s BTCC event received massive exposure nationwide with more than six hours of live television coverage on the ITV4 and ITV4 HD channels as well as ITV’s website. More highlights of the event are continuing to be shown this week across the ITV network, further adding to venue’s profile.
“We have been inundated with nothing but positive feedback from the public – both throughout the weekend and since,” added Morley. “In some areas our spectator banks were just a sea of colour as people showed their support for the different cars and drivers. The atmosphere was electric.

“It was also again wonderful to see so many families taking advantage of our ‘free for kids’ policy and bringing along their children to meet the drivers. We’d like to thank all public who attended and got behind the event as well as the volunteer stewards and trackside marshals who ensured both days ran like clockwork.

“The exposure on national television is of course great news for Croft and the area but we are also hugely grateful for the support shown by regional media – this is an area rich in motor sport heritage and it’s massively important and only right that we are able to compete with some of the bigger racing circuits further south and also able to shout about it. So many thanks to all the local TV, print, radio and internet journalists who also helped to make the event such a resounding success.”
A further eight top-class motor sport events are on the calendar at Croft this year. Two big dates for the diary are 6-7 August for ‘Nostalgia Weekend’ (a unique, two-day retro motor sport festival) and Saturday 3 December when the circuit hosts a competitive timed stage of the Roger Albert Clark Rally – one of the world’s best historic rallies featuring many of the cars that became a household name during the RAC rallies that toured the UK in the Sixties and Seventies.
For all event listings at Croft, ticket prices and booking details visit or call the circuit office on 01325 721815.
Fans can further keep in touch with what’s happening at Croft Circuit online via Facebook (look up CroftCircuit), Twitter and even ‘own’ a little bit of the circuit by joining the Supporters Club. See or email for more details.

Coulthard supports National Motorsport Week

BBC commentator and ex-F1 driver David Coulthard has visited two of Britain’s most famous venues to discover how accessible motor sport can be.
David Coulthard and Ian Wright
The Scotsman, 40, was filming a feature for the BBC's BAFTA-winning Formula One coverage, which will be aired during the European Grand Prix as a curtain raiser to National Motorsport Week.
National Motorsport Week is a joint initiative set up by the Motorsport Industry Association and Motor Sports Association to encourage newcomers into the sport, whether they are drivers, spectators, engineers or volunteers – a scheme which Coulthard fervently supports.
"Britain is the centre of the universe of motor sport. There is so much history and heritage here and success with British engineers and designers and racing drivers and we need to keep feeding that. Inevitably, the focus tends to be on F1 so it was great to see just how much more motor sport has to offer. What’s more just how accessible, affordable and fun it can be,” reported Coulthard.
Britain’s all-time top F1 points-scorer first visited a sold-out Club MSV Trackday staged on the historic Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit in Kent and was impressed by what he found.
“Anyone who wants to give it a go can take their own car and find out if they have talent for driving or not. The open road is clearly not the place to do that, but properly organised events like these are. I would never have thought you could do this. I literally could have driven down to Brands Hatch in my Mercedes, paid as little as £25, put my crash helmet on and driven that car around one of the world’s most iconic race tracks. What a great way to start in motor sport.”
Coulthard then moved on to Shelsley Walsh, the oldest motor sport venue in continuous use in the world. With a history of staging hill climb events stretching back more than a century, Shelsley underlines the UK’s long-running position at the pinnacle of motor sport. After meeting double MSA British Hill climb champion Scott Moran and inspecting his British-built Gould GR61X single-seater that features a 3.5-litre Nicholson-McLaren V8 engine plus F1 style paddle-shift gearbox, the 13-time grand prix winner joined Moran for a blast up the hill in an entry level Lotus Elise.
Thereafter Coulthard experienced two very different forms of grass roots motor sport, once again with expert advice from reigning MSA champions. First he jumped aboard Ian Wright’s purpose-built lightweight Sherpa Indy for an insight into the world of sporting trials – a discipline, which involves competitors climbing, marked sections of steep hills. Rather than speed, trials are all about finding traction whatever the surface: grass, mud, loose gravel or deep rutted sand. It’s a real team effort, too, with passengers bouncing about the vehicle to create more grip.
David Coulthard enjoying some Sporting Car Trails
Finally, multiple MSA champion Alastair Moffatt in his Mini Special gave the Scot an autotesting master class. Handbrake turns, tightly controlled powerslides and amazing reverse flicks are the tricks of the trade as participants manoeuvre around a specially laid-out course as swiftly as possible.
“As well as celebrating Britain’s unrivalled achievements at the top end, National Motorsport Week is all about showing just how easy it can be for all-comers to have some really great fun. And as I found out all these disciplines create very accessible and affordable opportunities for people to get into motor sport.”
“I’ve discovered that there are people competing in these disciplines for as little as £25 an event, and for a full weekend away, you could do it for £150. Even the more specialist machinery I experienced isn’t going to burn a huge hole in your pocket. Because there are classes for everyday road cars in hill climbs, autotests and trials, there really is something out there for everyone.”

Friday 24 June 2011


The 2011 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power (15-17 July;, the UK’s biggest celebration of power and speed, will play host to one of the UK’s biggest gatherings of World Rally Championship cars this year.  Over 30 rally cars will be at the Pageant, and all will be undertaking high-speed runs on the Pageant’s brand new, purpose-built tarmac ‘Rally Stage’.  Crowds will get to see the cars reach speeds of over 100mph on the straights, and then drift in wild and spectacular fashion through the corners.
The Ford RS2000 is a formidable rally car
Most of the cars that will appear at the Pageant are from the legendary Group B era (1982 to 1986), which featured some of the quickest, most powerful and most technically sophisticated rally cars every built.  The Group B cars became infamous for their extreme speeds, and for a series of major accidents – some of which were fatal – which led to the series being banned.  
Alongside these Group B monsters will be multiple generations of top-flight rally cars, from those dating back to the early 1970s all the way up to the late 1990s, all putting on displays of high-octane, flame-spitting power.
The Cholmondeley Estate, Cheshire, has transformed part of its grounds into the bespoke Rally Stage which has been designed to allow large crowds to take in all of the action.  The stage consists of two straights, punctuated by challenging chicanes, with two sweeping corners allowing drivers to show off their skills.
Amongst the entrants on the Pageant’s Rally Stage will be the 1983 Audi Quattro A2, perhaps the most famous Group B car.  The Audi Quattro A2 turned the rallying world upside down when it made its debut in 1981, thanks to its then-unique four-wheel drive layout which gave it unbeatable traction on loose surfaces.  Winning the WRC in 1982 and 1984, in its ultimate guise the Audi Quattro produced a massive 650bhp.
Another famous machine attending the Pageant will be the Peugeot 205 T16 EVO.  This model dominated the latter years of Group B, when power and speed was key, winning in 1985 and 1986.  200 T16 road cars were produced with a similar turbo-charged mid-engine, four-wheel-drive setup as the rally cars, but with far less power.  Thankfully the 205 T16 EVO running at the Pageant will have no such restrictions.
The Metro 6R4 : Same engine as used in the Jaguar XJ220!
In a similar vein to the Peugeot 205 T16, the Metro 6R4’s diminutive shape hides a potent 3.0-litre V6 engine with upwards of 350bhp.  Despite the 6R4 never achieving the success of some of its counterparts, it’s diminutive shape and knife-edge handling made a lasting impression on Group B, while its bespoke 3.0-litre V6 engine went on to even greater things.  It was eventually modified and used to power the Jaguar XJ220 – the world’s fastest production car between 1992 and 1994.
Other rally cars confirmed for the Pageant will include: 1982 Porsche 911 SC; 1986 Ford RS 200; 1967Morris Mini Cooper S; 1988 Ford Sierra Cosworth;1979 Fiat X1/9 Prototipo; and the famous 1992 WRC Martini Lancia Delta Integrale Evoluzione.
James Hall, Event Director for the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, commented, “To have these Group B monsters here – on our very own rally stage – is a fantastic addition to the Pageant for 2011.  These outlandish cars are particularly welcome, as they epitomise the noise, power, speed and spectacle that make the Pageant so popular.
“With track, airborne and waterborne displays, it is just a natural step up to provide Pageant of Power visitors with the ultimate in off-road entertainment.  It’s a display they won’t be able to see anywhere else,” added Hall.
The Pageant is located in the Cholmondeley Estate in Cheshire, and was created to celebrate power and performance in its many forms.  Winning the Best Tourist Event in Cheshire, and drawing in more than 50,000 visitors in 2010, the Pageant of Power has fast gained a reputation that makes early booking essential.  Ticket booking details and further event information can be found at or by calling the ticket hotline on 01829 772 432.

Cameron Davies becomes youngest-ever works-backed rally driver

Cameron Davies with the works backed Chevrolet Spark

Not content with having their own BTCC team, Chevrolet have launched their own works rally team. But here's the surprise. It's not in the British Rally Championship. It is in a rally series that doesn't have the most powerful cars and the drivers are too young to even have a road driving licence. Formula 1000. As the name suggests this series for 1 litre cars and young drivers has been going for several years now and continues to grow year on year. It's fantastic to see such an initiative in place, and even better to see it getting the support it deserves from sponsors such as Pirelli, Kick Energy, and now Chevrolet.
As for Cameron, We're sure he'll be a star of the future and definitely one to watch over the coming years. With a move up to an "adult" series looming, it's going to be an interesting year for him. It's not impossible to do well in rallying before you can drive on the road - just look at Tom Cave in British Rally Championship and the BTRDA rally series (and has only taken 3 years to go from a Fiesta up to a Mitsubishi Evo X). We await news of Cameron's career with great interest!
Teenage rallying sensation Cameron Davies is about to make motorsport history by becoming the youngest ever works-supported rally driver, campaigning a Chevrolet-backed Spark in the Formula 1000 Junior rally championship.
The 16-year old, from Llandovery, Carmarthenshire, is the series’ reigning champion, and is widely tipped to become Britain’s next rallying great.
Cameron’s car, and Chevrolet’s involvement, were revealed at the British Touring Car Championship round at Oulton Park, Cheshire, the closest BTCC circuit to Cameron’s home. The car was rally-prepared and developed by rallying specialists XS Racing.
“I’m absolutely bowled over by the fact I’ve got manufacturer support,” said Cameron. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet. I just can’t wait to drive it properly.”
But Cameron will have to wait a short while before he can compete in anger, not because of the car, but because he has to finish his GCSEs! The year 11 student at Ysgol Pantycelyn, Llandovery, had a Maths exam immediately after the car’s unveil…
The Spark’s first outing will be on June 24 at Caerwent, near Newport, once Cameron’s exams are out of the way. After his GCSEs, Cameron wants to do an Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence, focusing on developing his rally career.
“I’m thrilled to be fighting out the championship in the Spark,” he added. “It makes a perfect Formula 1000 car, as it’s relatively powerful for its size and has the right kind of handling for rallying. I’d love to take a championship title in it as this is my final year in juniors before moving up to something bigger.”
Cameron will be partnered by 22-year old co-driver Chris Williams from Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, in the series, which is aimed drivers aged between 14 and 16. The regulations stipulate that the car must be mechanically standard and of 1.0-litre displacement, with only minor modifications allowed to the brakes, suspension and exhaust system.
 In total, drivers can compete in nine out of 13 events across England and Wales, with the best seven finishes counting towards the championship.
Chevrolet UK Managing Director Mark Terry commented: “I’m delighted that Cameron will be driving the Formula 1000 Junior Spark. Chevrolet has a proud motorsport heritage, and is also a brand that consistently promotes and encourages talented youth, so it’s a natural fit. We’ll be following his progress closely, and wish him every success.”
Fans can track Cameron’s success via the Chevrolet UK Facebook site, while more information about the series can be found at

We've tried to get as many events as possible on our Calendar, however it's not complete yet, so if you have something to add please get in touch with us via

We are very grateful to the MG Car Club for working with us on this and hope many people take the chance to enjoy the event.”
MG Car Club General Manager Julian White said: “The MG Car Club is delighted to be working with Silverstone on such a worthwhile scheme as National Motorsport week continues to gather momentum.  This year, MGLive! falls on Armed Forces weekend and those cycling the Silverstone circuit can play their part by donating money to Help For Heroes.  After the cycle ride we’re inviting people to stay on site and be part of the MGLive! party which will cater for the whole family. MGLive! is the event where the whole family gets together to celebrate everything that’s great about MG cars and MG people. My message is simple - come and join in the fun!”
Backed by the Motor Sports Association (MSA), the UK’s governing body of motorsport, and the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), National Motorsport Week exists both to highlight the UK’s on-going world-leading role in all areas of international motor sport as well as to showcase the wide range of opportunities open to enthusiasts at grass roots level throughout the country.
