Alongside will be a range of spectacular dragsters and the Jet Mini – what’s a Jet Mini you ask? Well it’s only the ultimate Jet car, taking the shape of a Mini, with a Rolls Royce Viper 203 jet engine, and 2,800 lbs of thrust. Ooooh.
Lee Bowers – Top freestyle motorcycle rider will be on the track, performing his stunt and tricks show to the crowd!
If you aren’t quite into racing, and prefer to keep your pride and joy in pristine condition then the Show & Shine competition is probably better for you. If you have a sweet BMW show car, be it a classic or modified beauty, rather than leave it in the car park where no one can see it, park up in the show paddock for FREE, and show it off to the world! (Or just the attendees)
There will be trophies at hand for the Show & Shine competition, including:
Best Of Show
Best New Mini
