Our Bury St Edmunds is all revved up for Motorsport East event

Motorsport East is back! 

The show of cars and sporting vehicles will take place on Sunday July 24 and will take place across the town centre. It’s been curated by well-known local rallycross commentator and motorsport journalist Arthur Debenham and this year’s special guest is Laura Cooledge – a Women in Motorsport Ambassador and Club Development Officer at Anglia Motor Sport Club.

Motorsport East will feature around 65 competition vehicles with one of the highlights being former rallycross driver Brian Betteridge’s Ford Escort RS 1700T.  The vehicle was built as a prototype and is the only running example of its type left in the world!

A racing car simulator will also be located in Charter Square, where budding Lewis Hamiltons can test their skills against each other. Or if you prefer a slower pace, bumper cars will also be available along with other fairground rides. The attractions at arc shopping centre will be free of charge!

Motorsport East will support East Anglian Air Ambulance. Admission to the event is free and it runs from 10am to 4pm.  For more information visit www.ourburystedmunds.com.
