Race Day

About

Our season finale is a fast paced day celebrating Richard's Shuttleworth's passion for racing, veteran cars, and vintage aviation!

The smell of oil and the roar of engines will bring to Shuttleworth the excitement of mock air races and the Shuttleworth Sprint, along with vintage aircraft flying displays, live music, period paddock and exhibits, visiting car and motorcycle clubs, and fun activities to keep our younger visitors entertained.

The Shuttleworth Sprint is a 'classic' sprint course along a grass runway. It's purely fun, non-competitive or timed and no racing licences are required, though some of the world's finest veteran and vintage race cars and motorcycles will be taking part! Entry applications are welcome from pre-1939 vehicles. Visiting car and motorcycle clubs are welcome.

Follow the Richard Shuttleworth trail (download the app), enjoy live music, explore the activities in our children's discovery zone, take a free ride on vintage buses, explore the Swiss Garden and The House, and enjoy craft activities for children in the Swiss Garden, and make a free aircraft model with Airfix & IPMS Brampton 'Make & Paint'.
