As ever, CarFest will be hosted by BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans and will be packed with as much four-wheeled action as can be squeezed into a weekend. This year’s theme on the track sprint will be ‘Car-Nations’, celebrating some of the coolest and fastest cars from Great Britain, The USA, Japan, France, Germany and Italy.

The perfect hang out for any budding spidermen, batmen or wonder women, its CarFest’s very own Gotham City!
