New motoring festival

james-brookeA BRAND new motoring event has been confirmed which aims to be one of the most exciting new consumer events in 2011.

The first ever British Motor Festival will be  held at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, Berkshire, from 11-13 March 2011, and will run alongside the annual British Leisure Show which attracted more than 21,000 visitors in 2010.

The announcement will please car enthusiasts following October’s news that the British Motor Show will not be returning in 2012.


A mixture of owners clubs, manufacturers and dealership groups will be on show to satisfy car fans. Already confirmed for the event are Rolls Royce Motor Cars Sunningdale, Morgan, Caterham, Squire Furneaux Volvo, Citroen Slough, Subaru, Isuzu, Triumph, Tesla Motors, Get On, Royal Enfield and Harley Davidson.

James Brooke, event managing director, (pictured) said: ‘The new British Motor Festival has been designed to provide visitors with entertainment, interaction, education, hospitality and a unique display of new and classic cars and motorcycles at a prestigious venue.

‘The Royal Windsor Racecourse provides the perfect setting for purists to enjoy their passion, at a time when manufacturers and dealers are looking to engage with new customers. It’s a great value family day out, and visitors can enjoy two exciting events for the price of one!’


Joining the British Motor Festival will be the British Leisure Festival which features a selection of lifestyle products, leisure pursuits and holiday destinations.

Tickets for the event are priced at £15 in advance or £20 on the day for adults, children go free. Exhibitor space is available from just £17.50 per square metre; for more information call 01590 679338.
