Not content with just having the world-renowned hill climb in his front garden; Lord March also has a private off-road rally course at the top of the hill. This allows for spectacular high-speed rallying demonstrations by a variety of historical cars on a genuinely demanding and technical course, putting on a fantastic show for visitors and doing what they were built to do.
With the sheer scale of the event, and the magnitude of history surrounding you wherever you turn your head; It is almost impossible to sum up the Festival Of Speed without physically being there.. and even then a lot of people struggle to put it into words. The atmosphere is electric and like nowhere else, the show is steeped in history and world-famous drivers mingle with the crowds as if it were the norm.
Whilst this is but a mere snapshot of two years of the festival, I hope it has provided an insight into the event, and I cannot stress enough how much of a need-to-visit event it is. If you ever get the chance to go, make the most of it and take everything in for yourself.
