Richard Hammond is coming to CarFest

Richard Hammond will be at CarFest South 2023 as he brings his Smallest Cog Workshop team to the festival.

The presenter and his team at The Smallest Cog will be running their own on-site restoration workshop across the weekend of 25th-27th August at Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire.

Within the festival’s three-day span, the team from the hit Discovery+ series Richard Hammond’s Workshop will take on the challenge to restore a very special car in real-time, later taking centre stage at the head of the final track show on Sunday. 

Also at the festival will be Sporting Bears Dream Rides. The Sporting Bears motor club has been working with CarFest for years, raising £845,000 to date for our UK Children’s Charities.

They’ll be offering festival-goers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take one of their dream cars for a spin around the Kwik Fit-Michelin Track and then out on the open road for a 10-mile drive.

CarFest 2023 has over ten exclusive cars on offer, including a Chevy Camaro ZL1, featured in the latest Fast and Furious instalment, and the historic war-winning 1942 Rolls-Royce Wraith.

There will also be a unique F1 paddock experience, where motorsport fans can witness the cars being prepped for the track.

Tickets are still available for the festival on their website – https://carfest.org/
