Dacia fans take over top-secret test track

Dacia fans to take over Bruntingthorpe... but it's not what you think

Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome has been used for high-performance car testing since the 1970s – with supercars regularly topping more than 200mph along its old RAF runway.

But it’s set to hold a slightly different event this weekend, with Dacia owners invited to bring their cars and families along for the fourth annual Dacia Day.

What does a ‘Dacia Day’ entail, you may wonder? No, nobody’s expected to V-Max their Sandero – but a wide range of activities will be on offer to suit the Duster’s ‘lifestyle’ image.

These include archery, falconry and, to coincide with the launch of the Duster Rugby League special edition, a taste of rugby. There will also be an off-road track for demonstrations of the Duster’s rough terrain capabilities.

The event has been organised in association with independent Dacia website, the Dacia Forum.

Dacia UK head Louise O’Sullivan said: “Dacia Day promises to be a fun-filled free event with something for everyone. We love to see all of our customers enjoying themselves and many look forward to sharing experiences with other Dacia owners.

“A strong sense of community is one of the reasons why owners rate Dacia so highly, so we’re really pleased to be involved with this fourth annual Dacia Day. We encourage everyone to bring a picnic with them and to make the most of the day!”

Dacia Day follows on from the long-running ‘Dacia Picnic’ events first held in France in 2008, where Dacia owners meet for a family day out with activities, socialising and picnics.

The event will take place in Leicestershire on 13 August 2016. If you’re a Dacia owner and want to attend, simply fill in the form here.
