Mo­tor­sport Vi­sion Rac­ing will run a stand­alone race meet­ing to cel­e­brate Italy’s mo­tor­sport her­itage at Brands Hatch this sum­mer.

The new Fes­ti­val Italia event will be run on Au­gust 14 at the Kent track and will fea­ture a mix­ture of races and sprint events, along with For­mula 1 demon­stra­tions as well as iconic road and race ma­chines.

The Fer­rari Own­ers’ Club and Bri­tish Rac­ing and Sports Car Club’s Alfa Romeo Cham­pi­onship will pro­vide most of the rac­ing con­tent and there will also be an out­ing for his­toric cars, which will be sup­ported by the BRSCC. MSVR also plan mul­ti­ple off-track ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing an Ital­ian mar­ket and static dis­plays.

Fes­ti­val Italia brings MSVR’S sched­ule of spe­cial fes­ti­val events to seven, in­clud­ing Mini Fest South and North, Amer­i­can Speed­fest, Lotus Fes­ti­val, Masters His­toric Fes­ti­val and Chris Evans’s Carfest event.

MSVR’S David Scott said: “The fes­ti­vals we run work very well for us. They bring new peo­ple to Brands Hatch as they of­fer a bit more than just a usual race meet­ing. They are great fam­ily events and give peo­ple a taste of some­thing dif­fer­ent. Italy has a sto­ried mo­tor­sport his­tory, so this is a great way to cel­e­brate that.”
