MotoFest Coventry to celebrate 10-year anniversary in 2024

MotoFest Coventry will return to its traditional fixture on the calendar of early June (1/2) next year as it celebrates its 10-year Anniversary.

Dedicated to the city of Coventry’s motoring heritage, the two-day festival will feature a unique blend of racing demonstrations, static displays, live music and anything else with a connection to Coventry, transport and the city’s motoring ties. 

The 2024 edition will once again see the British Automobile Racing Club’s Midlands Centre oversee the running of unique Sprint Circuit, which is carved out of the City Centre Ring Road.

Headlining the action will be two rounds of the BARC Connaught Speed Championship whilst the new drift arena, dynamic and static vehicle displays, music and entertainment will also add to the spectacle. 

James Noble, MotoFest Coventry Festival Director, said: “We are delighted to announce the new date for MotoFest 2024, which will be a particularly special year as we celebrate ten years of MotoFest Coventry.

“From its humble beginnings in 2014, MotoFest Coventry has developed into the UK’s largest free-to-attend motoring festival, with over 200,000 visitors at this year’s event, and we are very proud of our achievements.

“As well as providing a showcase for Coventry’s motoring heritage, we will also be working with event partners such Coventry City Council to demonstrate the best in sustainable transport, low carbon motoring and advanced automotive and electric vehicle technology at next year’s show.

“We look forward again to the electrifying prospect of a special anniversary MotoFest Coventry in 2024, with our Past, Present and Future theme providing the foundation for the spectacular return of the UK’s biggest and best, free to attend, motoring festival.”

MotoFest Coventry set to make long-awaited return in June

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

MotoFest Coventry revved up to return after two-year hiatus

MotoFest Coventry is gearing up for a triumphant return after a two-year hiatus on September 10/11, with the British Automobile Racing Club’s Midlands Centre once again set to play a critical role at the heart of the spectacle. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic meaning the two-day event hasn’t taken place since 2019, MotoFest Coventry is aiming to be back bigger and better than ever this year, with a bumper number of visitors expected to be in attendance. 

Blending live music, theatre and street food along with exhibitors, car and motorcycle clubs and celebrity guests, MotoFest Coventry has been widely recognised as the ultimate urban bikesport and motorsport festival since its inception back in 2014.

This year will see the third MotoFest Coventry Sprint, an event which has previously been a sell-out. Created out of the City’s Ring Road, the Sprtnt will be open to an extensive range of vehicles and members from distinguished clubs. 

The Club’s Midlands Centre is currently aiming to provide one practice run and one competitive run during the first session on Saturday and Sunday, followed by two competition runs to complete a second session later on each day. 

Both days of the Sprint will also form Rounds 27 & 28 of the 2022 BARC Connaught Speed Championship.
