Preview: Castle Hill Festival, Devon, 9-10 August

Published 29 April 2014

The Castle Hill Car Festival takes place on 9-10 August in the grounds of Castle Hill, the North Devon, and will feature a display of up to 1000 classic cars, as well a Formula 1 themed display and paddock. It follows on from last year's event, which attracted a huge crowd to what was a new event venture in one of the most popular tourist regions.

The headline exhibit for 2014 will be the Classic Formula 1 and Racing Paddock. This fantastic display will include some of the most iconic Classic F1 cars including Michael Schumacher’s Benetton-Ford, an Arrows A21 and a Hesketh 308. Also on show will be a Group C Le Mans car and the very latest 2014 Bentley Continental GT3 racer, and as a first for the South West, many of these iconic cars will be taking part in live-action demonstration runs on the competition track - a truly spectacular treat for all motor sport fans.

As well as the classic road and track cars, there will be showcase exhibits of the very latest models from Rolls-Royce, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, Lotus and Jaguar, plus a comprehensive range of family cars.

In addition to the F1 and race car displays the track will also feature demonstration runs from many of the world’s best supercars including Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari Porsche, Jaguar, BMW and Mercedes.

Not all the action takes place on the ground, the Abarth stunt plane display returns, as do the ever popular helicopter pleasure flights which will whisk you off high above Exmoor and the North Devon coastline. Also new for 2014 will be a Food and Drink pavilion showcasing the very best West Country produce. For the youngsters there is also a fantastic children’s play area.

The Festival opens from 10am to 6pm both days with plenty of free parking. Adult ticket prices start at just £15.00. More information is available on the Festival website –
