The event has evolved in many ways therefore we need to be able to share all the information and updates with you for both days, so please scroll down.

What’s New?

Party in the Paddock (5-9pm Monday evening)

The track event takes place on Tuesday 11 July, but we also have a preview party the night before, which you are very welcome to join us for. This will be an informal gathering in the paddock, with live music and food, and an opportunity to view some of the cars ahead of a busy day of track running.

Tuesday Grid Walk

All guests of the event will be welcomed onto the grid and pit lane after the Hypercar parade at 12:30 – 13:15 to get up close and personal with 100+ very special road cars.
