entry for participants is now open
Following a hugely successful move to Stoneleigh Park for the Coventry Festival of Motoring 2012, entry for the 2013 event is now open.
The Historic Vehicle Run will once again take place on the Sunday morning of the Festival, and will pass through the spectacular South Warwickshire countryside, allowing you to stop off at some delightful hostelries if you wish to do so.
There will be lots going on across both days of the Festival, and our intention is to make Saturday as attractive as Sunday to both participants and visitors alike, so that the whole weekend has the 'Festival Fizz'. To this end we will be booking a range of entertainment for both days, so come and display your vehicle for the whole weekend and be part of a feast of fun and celebration.
Saturday will see the return of both the WheelSkills precision driving contest and the Show & Shine competition, both of which were thoroughly enjoyed by those who took part in 2012. Entry forms for both of these competitions will be sent out to registered participants and car clubs nearer the time.
craft fair, marketplace & Autojumble
The Craft Fair and Marketplace will once again be under cover on Saturday and Sunday, with much to interest all the members of the family, and for the diehards among you, we hope to have an autojumble area where you can search out those elusive motoring parts and accessories - more information to come.
future of transport expo
Organised by Coventry University in partnership with Coventry Transport Museum, the Future of Transport Expo was a huge success last year and is returning to Stoneleigh to once more present the innovative developments from the transport sector in our region.
new for 2013 - saturday night hog roast
In response to your feedback and the overwhelming desire for 'something different; we bring you the Saturday Night Hog Roast. Picture the scene - a warm balmy evening, the delicious aroma of spit roasted locally reared pork, live music and a congenial bar. What more could you want to relax and round off the first day of a fun-packed weekend? For those who do not eat meat there will of course be a vegetarian option. Tickets cost £10 and must be booked in advance when you book your vehicle in.
Again, following on from your feedback we have made hotel and camping arrangements much more straightforward. Rather than offering a weekend package we have negotiated preferential rates of £55 per room per night, including breakfast, at both Stoneleigh Park Lodge and Woodland Grange Conference Centre. This represents excellent value for money and you can book directly with your chosen hotel.
