Bugatti Veyrons, Pagani Zondas and Koenigseggs line up alongside Ferrari 458s, Porsche 911 Turbos and Lamborghini Huracans. The TVR Car Club and the Lotus Drivers’ Club will head up the British paddock, with the finest performance marques from around the globe fighting for attention at Donington.

The famous Donington circuit will see plenty of track action, with performance cars of all shapes, ages and sizes being put through their paces to please the crowds. Be it classic, retro, current or future, if it’s fast and has four wheels, then it will be found at The Fast Car Festival. Hot hatches, sports and hypercars and even the future of performance from Formula E racers will take to the track.

With hot laps from machines as diverse as American muscle through to circuit and drift racers, the variety of vehicles on track will be huge. Show goers will also be able to take their own vehicle out in a number of public track sessions. There’s also the chance for an unforgettable thrill ride, by hopping into the passenger seat of some of the world’s fastest and rarest super cars for a few adrenaline-filled laps of the former F1 circuit.

There will be vast club areas within the infield, where you can browse hundreds of the finest, rarest, fastest and priciest cars around.

Meanwhile, over at the main stage there will be live music and interviews with motoring celebrities, along with an ‘experts’ quiz team, taking on the most knowledgeable show goers in an Eggheads-style challenge.

The main party will get underway on the Saturday night, though, with licensed bars and a brilliant selection of live bands, followed by appearances from club DJs and an evening of party music.

The Fast Car Festival is brought to you by the team behind the world famous TRAX and Japfest events and looks set to be one of the most entertaining, original and enthralling shows in 2016.
