The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power has opened its doors to the public for 2014, and the event which aims to showcase power in all its forms is in full swing.
Over the weekend there'll be racers on both two and four wheels taking to the 1.2-mile circuit to thrill the crowds.
There's a strong showing from several manufacturers including Ford, Vauxhall, BMW and Maserati - which is celebrating its centenary at the event this weekend. That means a special outing for the 1959 Maserati Birdcage, which has amassed a plentiful collection of trophies from circuits including Spa, Silverstone and the Nürburgring in its racing career.
There'll also be custom-built racers, go-karts, Le Mans classics, sports cars and supercars taking to the Cholmondeley track, as well as the 24.0-litre Napier Bentley and the massive 42.0-litre Packard Bentley aero-engined cars.
Cars are divided into classes including pre-war classics, rally cars, historic F1 racers and supercars. Over the coming days, they'll compete to set the fastest time on the course, with each class getting two runs per day. It'll take some skill to topple the current lap record, which stands at 55.29 seconds and was set by Robbie Kerr last year in a Radical RXC. With the likes of the Ariel Atom 3.5R and BAC Mono competing this year, that record could soon find itself under threat.
There's also action away from the track with motocross demonstrations and an off-road driving course, while the top riders from the world of British jet ski racing are putting on a show on the lake. There'll be airborne demonstrations over the weekend, too, featuring the single-seat Hawker Hurricane.
Autocar's supercar paddock contains the latest and greatest models from a variety of manufacturers, and yesterday we helped to kick-off proceedings in style with a unique 'noise-off' tunnel run event through the Kingsway tunnel near Birkenhead.
It's certainly shaping up to be a varied and exciting few days. To read Autocar's full preview, click here.
