‘ We’re look­ing to cre­ate a show within a show and cel­e­brate our clas­sic her­itage’ MOTOFEST DI­REC­TOR, JAMES NO­BLE

This year’s Coven­try Motofest – to be held on 3-4 June – is set to de­liver the big­gest clas­sic ve­hi­cle of­fer­ing ever staged at the fes­ti­val.

The ini­tia­tive fol­lows a new part­ner­ship be­tween Motofest or­gan­is­ers and the Coven­try Busi­ness Im­prove­ment District (BID), that will make space avail­able for 500 cars plus 500 mo­tor­cy­cles and scoot­ers each day.

Clubs and clas­sic car en­thu­si­asts are be­ing urged to help fill all the dis­play al­lo­ca­tion – and as a fi­nale of each day’s pro­gramme, the Coven­try BID Caval­cade will see static dis­play ve­hi­cles take to the Ben­netts Spring Cir­cuit for pa­rade laps.

‘We are de­lighted to an­nounce this new part­ner­ship with the Coven­try BID, which will en­able us to de­liver our big­gest clas­sic ve­hi­cle of­fer­ing so far at Coven­try Motofest,’ says Motofest’s di­rec­tor James No­ble.

‘With the Coven­try BID Clas­sic, we are look­ing to cre­ate a show within a show, which will put clas­sic cars and bikes at the fore­front of the fes­ti­val and in do­ing so pro­vide vis­i­tors with a gen­uinely awe-in­spir­ing cel­e­bra­tion of our clas­sic mo­tor­ing her­itage.’

Cars, mo­tor­cy­cles and scoot­ers over 20 years old can dis­play free of charge and a guar­an­teed dis­play place for in­di­vid­u­als and clubs can be booked through the event’s web­site.

this year’s coven­try Motofest prom­ises the big­gest gather­ing of clas­sic cars and bikes yet.
