Newer modified machines, sporting outrageous aerodynamic parts and unique pieces of bodywork, will star in rounds of modern Time Attack.

Additional circuit activity includes a demonstration from a race-prepared Super Tourer, representing the British Touring Car Championship's '90s golden era and drift demonstrations.

Off-track activities include a concours, Group B rally and F1 displays, exhibitor stands, family-friendly entertainment, a funfair and much more.
