Last remaining CarFest North tickets on sale

Wednesday, July 23 2014

With just a few days to go until CarFest North opens at Oulton Park (1-3 August), a limited amount of tickets are still available for the Friday - and the chance to sample the unique atmosphere of Chris Evans' fast cars, live music and food-themed event, all in aid of charity.

To date the four hugely successful, sell-out CarFests have wowed more than 200,000 visitors and raised over £2m for BBC Children in Need. CarFest North debuted at Oulton Park last year and was a huge success with regulars and newcomers to the Cheshire circuit.

Action on track will be topped by Evans' own 'Magnificent Seven' collection of amazing Ferraris. The Track Sprint line-up of dazzling cars sticks with the 'Sevens' theme with lots of new and exciting categories for this year's event. There's a Hot Rod Seven and Movie Car Seven as well as more familiar F1 and Rally Sevens. The special Anniversary Seven will include Nick Mason's stunning Maserati 250F, to celebrate the Italian company's centenary, while the Muscle Car Seven will feature Ford's newly revealed 2015 Mustang to mark 50 years of the American classic.

The Showground arena will be packed with massive stunts and huge displays while the Outdoor Play Area will be filled with the very best children's entertainers and performers. Britain's Best Pavilion will showcase food and drink created by small producers from throughout the UK. The equally popular Cakes v Pies competition returns, too, with judges including TV personalities Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood.

After the excitement on the track has ended for the day, a host of famous bands will take to the stage each evening, compered by the inimitable Evans. This year's bill-toppers include Erasure, Eliza Doolittle, Toseland, Simple Minds, Seasick Steve, Paloma Faith, Jools Holland, The Feeling, 10cc and Texas.

"The wonderful world of CarFest is back!" exclaimed Evans. "Prepare yourselves for a feast of fabulous festival food, marvellous fast cars and live shows from the kind of bands we all love. It's going to be utterly, scrumptiously fantastic!"
