Start Your Engines for the 2013 Coventry Festival of Motoring

Posted on


Entry for the 2013 Coventry Festival of Motoring is now open for clubs and individuals and organisers are aiming to attract hundreds of cars and motorbikes and their owners to take part in the event, which makes a welcome return to Stoneleigh Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August.

Last year’s Festival was the first to take place at Stoneleigh, having previously been held at Coventry’s War Memorial Park, and was hailed as a huge success.  Over 1000 classic vehicles took part, with around 600 of them on the flagship Sunday morning Historic Vehicle Run through Kenilworth, Leamington and South Warwickshire. 

Over 30 car and motorbike clubs mounted impressive displays and 20,000 visitors enjoyed the weekend’s events at Stoneleigh Park. This year’s Festival is set to build on the success of 2012, with the return of the Future of Transport Expo, showcasing some of the region’s most exciting vehicular innovations, as well as a buzzing programme of entertainment, shopping and competitions planned throughout the whole weekend. 

The Show & Shine and WheelSkills precision driving contests will also return for 2013, having been hotly contested in their inaugural year.

Anyone who would like to take their car or motorbike on the Festival of Motoring Historic Vehicle Run can apply online at  Entry costs £22 for cars and £11 for motorcycles, and will remain open until Friday 10th May 2013, or until all places are filled, whichever comes soonest. As well as the car run, the other integral element of the Festival of Motoring is the many and varied car and motorcycle clubs who display throughout the weekend, and entry is now open for clubs who would like to take part in the event.  Display space for clubs is free of charge, and can be booked now by downloading an application form from

Gary Hall, Chair of the Coventry Festival of Motoring Organising Committee said: “We had a great time at Stoneleigh Park for the 2012 Coventry Festival of Motoring and we’re planning for the 2013 event to be even bigger and better, with lots of motoring-related festivities across both days of the Festival.  I would urge any classic car or bike owner to log onto the Festival website and get involved in this wonderful event.”
