Thundersprint 2009 - Spitfire Around the Town Centre

Posted on


Spitfire fans will have the chance to see this magnificent aircraft display in a unique setting right on the edge of Northwich, Cheshire, on Sunday May 10.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Spitfire will perform at Thundersprint 2009 - an incredible mix of classic motorcycle racing, street entertainment and fine food which takes over this pretty market town during the second weekend in May.

The Thundersprint festival has completely free admission, and free parking, and provides a packed day’s entertainment for the whole family. Turn one corner and there’s a 1960s Grand Prix star munching on a home made wild boar pie - walk around the next and find thoroughbred classic race bikes mingling with Morris Dancers and Jazz bands: there’s nowhere like the Thundersprint!

Star attractions on two-wheels this year are double World Champion and MotoGP star James Toseland and six times World Champion Jim Redman.

As the tension builds for the start of four hours of non-stop racing, the BBMF Spitfire roars across the sky in salute and the thunder of the mighty Merlin engine echoes from Marks and Spencer’s store wall! Truly, an unmissable experience for any fan of classic aircraft - and one which is absolutely unique to the Thundersprint.

Spectator entry to the Thundersprint is free, as is parking, but arriving early is recommended because Northwich gets very busy. The Thundersprint is very family friendly and welcomes well-behaved pets - and children. Facilties for the disabled are excellent with free parking right in the centre of the show.
Sunday May 10 - Northwich, Cheshire, Town Centre
