Chris Evans held two Carfests, North and South, and they were both a great success.
We were delighted to have been invited to the events with our E-Type Speedster and we had a couple of great weekends.
Carfest is a 'Goodwood Festival of Speed' style car show but with the added attraction of a music festival and with comprehensive camping facilities. The emphasis is towards families and thousands of them camped for the duration and had very memorable weekends.
The southern event was at ex F1 world champion Jody Schekter's Lavertsoke Park Organic Farm and the northern show, two weeks later, was at the gorgeous Cholmondely Castle. The castle has been in the Cholmondely family for an incredible 1000 years!
Every sensational car in the world appeared to be present and they were driven throughout the day on a hillclimb so that everybody was able to experience the noise and sensation. The lovely sound of the Speedster ripping up the hill was well appreciated.
Bands playing included Razorlight and Texas and the evenings ended with a sensational firework display set to more music.
It has been a great success, looks set to become an annual event - and we were very pleased to have been at the first ones.
