Two great motorsport events - one great price!
Cholmondeley Power and Speed
2016 sees Cholmondeley shaking things up with a new name, revised format and exciting features.
With a racetrack that rewards power and speed, we felt it was time for these key factors to be better represented in the event name and after much thought, Cholmondeley Power and Speed was born. The name was launched at London’s Hurlingham Club today.
This year, 10th to 12th June, sees the celebration of Supercars and Bikes: past, present and future. Taking to the track will be the likes of the McLaren 650s, Aston Martin Vulcan, Lamborghini Miura and ‘90’s Ducati superbike and the new Ariel bike.
With track action from 9am-6pm, air displays, army demos, trade village, hospitality and water sport action on the lake this is a weekend not to be missed. For those camping there will be a free evening beer and cider festival.
Following the epic motorsport action, don't you and your friends deserve -
All Saturday tickets include the Beer & Comedy Festival. Enjoy from a selection of over 20 craft beers with free tasting and a meet the brewer session on Saturday 11th June.
If you can't come during the day join us in the evening. Evening tickets for the Beer and Comedy Festival from 6pm only £15.
The theme for the 2016 Cholmondeley Power and Speed will be Supercars: past, present and future. The 3.2 miles circular track is highly respected amongst the competitors. Fans can see them with their Supercars leave the startline and be there as they return to the pits.... simply the best place to soak up the atmosphere amongst the drivers and mechanics. Located in Cheshire, this northern event is a great place to meet up with motorsport friends and enjoy a weekend of fast, competitive action. With over 150 track entries from both cars and bikes the track has constant action each day.
