After the huge success of the inaugural Supercar Fest last July we are introducing a new event for 2020, Supercar Fest: The Runway. Join us on Sunday 24th May (bank holiday weekend) for an action packed day at Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire, just 15 mins from J16 of the M1.
Our runway event will see the supercars go head to head. One will be released and then seconds later the 'chaser' will try and catch the lead car as they make a long right hand turn onto the 1km runway. Expect some high speed action as the owners show the crowds what their supercars can really do!
As well as the runway action there will of course be plenty more happening at the event; enjoy unrestricted access to the supercar paddock where you can get up close and personal with the supercars and meet their owners. There will also be exclusive motorsport demonstrations throughout the day.
Aside from the cars, you and the family can enjoy 2 nights of camping on site, listen to some live music from a selection of bands, grab something to eat from the food truck village, enjoy a drink at one of the onsite bars and visit one of our many trade stands.
Sywell Aerodrome opened in 1928 as a grass strip for the emerging private aircraft craze. During the 2nd World War it became RAF Sywell and was used for training pilots using Tiger Moths and it also became a repair centre for Wellington bombers. The venue was used for the 1969 film Battle of Britain featuring Michael Caine. In 2007 the venue was granted permission to install a concrete runway which was completed in 2009. And this runway will be forming an exciting part of the ‘side by side’ demonstrations at Supercar Fest in May.
