Icons ready for Cholmondeley Pageant of Power

Published 09 June 2015

Three iconic classics have been brought together to promote this year’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power. The cars – a Lotus Evora GTE, Ferrari Testarossa, and Ford Mustang – neatly tie-up the event’s key themes.

On Friday, CPOP will celebrate Lotus with a parade featuring an example of every Lotus ever made, including new models such as the Evora GTE. On Saturday, Cholmondeley will pay homage to the poster cars of the Eighties, such as the Ferrari Testarossa. 

And on Sunday, crowds will be treated to the rumbling sound of many V8s with a celebration of US muscle cars, including icons like the Ford Mustang GT 390. 

James Hall, event director said he was excited to be returning the pageant’s roots with a power-themed weekend across land, air and water. Hall said, ‘The great range of cars assembled here represent just a small selection of the varied content set to appear across the weekend.’

Organisers have also released a new video showing highlights on track, on the lake, in the air and on stage of the past seven years, giving a true feel for what the event is about.

Outside of the four-wheeled motors, CPOP has a strong two-wheeled offering welcoming bike legends Dougie Lampkin MBE and Sammy Miller MBE throughout the weekend, along with Triumph, the Millyard Viper V10 and a Suzuki Hayabusa.

In addition, Sunday will see the world’s only flying Vulcan take to the skies above Cholmondeley for its last ever flight in Cheshire, with the Red Bull Matadors entertaining the crowd with an aerobatic display. This exciting air programme will follow the appearance of the RAF Typhoon Display Team on the Saturday.

On the lake there will be a wide range of watersport action including jet ski racing and flyboarding demonstrations.
All of this, combined with camping, live music from Tenors of Rock and the RPJ Band and hundreds of exciting trade stands, makes CPOP a family-friendly motorsport event .

Tickets are still available at for the event at Cholmondeley Castle, Malpas, Cheshire. Adult tickets are priced from £30 with children’s tickets starting from £5.
