Like your cars fast? You’d have been well catered for at Donington Park this weekend, at the world’s first Fast Car Festival.
The 6,000-strong crowd at the Derbyshire event was treated to seeing the new Aston Martin Vulcan up close and personal.
One of only 24 Vulcans in the world, the hot new Aston boasts 800hp.
How much? If you have to ask…
OK, it’s estimated to be worth around £2 million.
Racing driver and Fifth Gear host Tiff Needell made a guest appearance, with a few lucky visitors enjoying a passenger lap in a Lotus Evora 400.
On Sunday, members of online community Supercar Driver showcased more than 50 hot supercars in the Supercar Paddock – including two Lamborghini Aventador SVs and a Jaguar F-Type Project 7.
There was also a McLaren 650S and a Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.
Ever had a go at drifting? Visitors were able to jump in the passenger seat of a Caterham 7 for a sideways view of Donington’s Melbourne Loop track.
PistonHeads put together a special ‘PH Metal’ display, as well as a special 30-car track session.
Lotus was also given a special display at the show – as well as dedicated Lotus-only track time.
A number of awards were handed out over the weekend, with Caz Hawes picking up the Best Wheels Award for her modified Volkswagen Lupo.
Were these the best wheels at the show? Judges thought so.
The Best Club Award, meanwhile, went to Fitment Junkies.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t all fast cars at the Fest Car Festival. Visitors were also treated to a monster truck display.
The evening entertainment was a particular highlight of the weekend – with live shows from Toploader…
…and DJ Pied Piper. Yes, him off of ‘Do You Really Like It?’.
The festival’s managing director, Phil Weeden, said: “An attendance of 6,000 is a really impressive achievement for our first year.”
The event is set to return in 2017. Weeden added: “We have some great ideas for improvements in 2017 to make the show even better, so we’re confident we can grow it in future years.”
