The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power kicks off this Friday with more than 150 cars on display.
Cars from all walks of motorsport and road-racing fame will be driven around the 1.2 mile Cheshire course, including legendary machines such as the Bentley Speed 8 – which won at Le Mans in 2003 – and ultra-rare examples from the four-wheel-drive era of Formula One, such as the Lotus 63.
Rally monsters from the Group B stable will also feature. Cars such as the 1983 Audi Quattro A2 driven by Walter Rohrl and the Metro 6R4, as driven by British maestro, Tony Pony, make the 30-strong line-up of rally stars in a show, which is hoped will attract crowds in excess of the 50,000.
To commemorate 50 years of the Jaguar E-type, a special lightweight version of the iconic car is also on show.
James Hall, event director for the show, said, “There are hundreds of cars appearing at the event this year, each with its own unique history.
“With track, airborne and waterborne displays, it’s an experience visitors won’t be able to have anywhere else.”
