THE MOTORSPORT PADDOCK

THE MOTORSPORT PADDOCK

Jody Scheckter has created what promises to be one of the most exciting areas at this year’s CarFest… with a brand new Motorsport Paddock, which this year will celebrate Grand Prix Through the Ages.

With a display and demonstrations featuring 30 carefully curated cars that represent the history of Grand Prix racing from the turn of the last century to the present day. Each decade of Grand Prix racing will be represented by cars that defined those periods, including the 1934 ERA - R3A, the 1960 Ferrari 246 Dino F1 and the 1961 Cooper Climax Type 53.

THE MICHELIN & KWIKFIT TRACK

THE MICHELIN & KWIKFIT TRACK

At CarFest South, we are so lucky to be based on the farm of Formula One World Champion Jody Scheckter.

In 2018, together with Ross Brawn, they designed a fantastic new track for CarFest which incorporates a replica of the famous ‘Swimming Pool’ corner at Monaco’s F1 Street Circuit. 

Be sure not to miss Jody out on track, driving his fantastic historic  F1 car collection in front of the crowds.

We absolutely love the Sporting Bears. They work tirelessly to give every CarFest visitor the chance to ride in the most exclusive cars.

Every ride with the Bears raises money for charities, through our wonderfully generous Festival goers. This hugely exciting experience, has raised over £500k over the past 7 years. Be sure to book ahead and get yourself a ride on track or maybe take a blast around the surrounding.
