MotoFest Coventry is poised to make its long-awaited return this summer with the British Automobile Racing Club’s Midlands Centre set to play a critical role at the heart of the spectacle. 

Taking place on June 3/4 and backed by E.ON, MotoFest Coventry will blend live music, theatre and street food with exhibitors, celebrity guests and car and motorcycle clubs; making it the ultimate urban bikesport and motorsport festival.

Last taking place in 2019, the COVID-19 pandemic put pay to the two-day event running in 2020 and 2021 however plans were originally in place for a triumphant homecoming in September last year. 

Due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II a few days before the start of proceedings, organisers elected to postpone the event and have since worked tirelessly to lock in a suitable date.

As has been the case in the past, the one-of-a-kind festival will continue to feature a Motorsport UK permitted closed road sprint across both days too; which is held between the Junctions 4 and 6 of the Coventry Ring Road, supported by the BARC and delivered by the Midlands Centre.

Participation for the sprint event has already been confirmed by a number of leading speed series, one of which is the BARC Connaught Competition Engines Speed Championship.

Entries are now open for the event via
