On the 14th August 2016, the famous Kent racing track is to host the Festival Italia when some wonderful Italian vehicles will be on display including some delightful classic cars. There will be many attractions as well as some potentially exciting racing taking place.
The Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic racing event will include the Ferrari 308 that goes back to the 1970s – a sight not to be missed. You will be interested and pleased to hear that you may even be able to walk on the grid before the racing starts at no additional cost. That should enable you to get very close to the vehicles taking part in the races thus adding to the overall experience.
Some of the other vehicles that are expected to make an appearance include the Lancia Stratose and the Ferrari F40. There will also be Grand Prix racing cars providing demonstrations.
Of course, an event like the Festival Italia would not be complete without the appearance of Alfa Romeo. This is a famous manufacturer of vehicles that are priced at a level that make them affordable to a lot of people. Their styling and performance is renowned and appreciated by many.
This sounds like an event not to be missed whether you are a keen classic car enthusiast or interested in modern vehicles from Italy. An adult would pay £24 at the gate to be admitted. If you wanted to get into either the Paddock Hill Grandstand or the Pit Straight Grandstand then you would pay an extra £5. The admission price for those aged 65 and over is £18. Children aged between 13 to 15 are charged £15 and children under 13 are admitted for free at the gate to get in. Let us hope that the weather is favourable on the day and that an enjoyable time is had by all.
