Brom­yard Speed Fes­ti­val set to rum­ble in 2017

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

‘The Beast meets Babs’ is the theme for the 2017 Brom­yard Speed Fes­ti­val when two iconic leviathans take to the streets of the Here­ford­shire town on Sun­day, April 2.

Build­ing on the suc­cess of the in­au­gu­ral demon­stra­tion event, next year’s fes­ti­val will be capped by the Beast of Turin, the 1911 28-litre Fiat land speed record car, and Babs, the 1926 27-litre land speed record car of John Par­ryThomas. Both cars will run on the streets of the Welsh borders mar­ket town.

The 2016 edi­tion drew 5000 peo­ple to see com­pe­ti­tion cars demon­strated around a lap of the town. Cars and motorbikes will be di­vided into cat­e­gories, with each group tak­ing part in sev­eral multi-lap demon­stra­tions be­tween 1000hrs and 1630hrs.

The Brom­yard busi­ness com­mu­nity re­sponded pos­i­tively to the first fes­ti­val and was keen for it to be re­peated.
