3 mins read


Motor Show Events are returning to the car show circuit with their Festival of Wheels event this weekend (31 July – 1 August) in Ipswich. This is set to be their first proper car show since before the pandemic and their first show in any capacity since Bonfire Night last November.

“The audience and our supporters have been amazing and have managed to carry us through.

“It’s the sheer amount of support from the fans that we’ve managed to, through the skin of our teeth, to come through it.”

Their upcoming event, Festival of Wheels 2021, is set to feature thousands of cars, from British vintage classics to supercars worth millions.

The event will be showcasing vehicles of all shapes and sizes, with a special low rider display, motorbike stunts and monster trucks.

Attendees will even have the chance to drive in an American big rig truck.

The event will be taking place on 360 acres worth of land, ensuring that everyone has enough space to be comfortable.

Mr Martin made sure to ease fears of social distancing, saying that “99 percent” of the event was outdoors and masks will be encouraged when people do go inside.

He said: “I think we’re going to bounce back quite quickly, and were very proud and very passionate about what we do and I think this weekend, we can put on an amazing show.

“But the main thing, I think we’re going to build a lot of happiness back into people and hopefully we can provide that nice family weekend to give everyone something to look forward to.” 

With almost all covid restrictions having been relaxed now, car enthusiasts will finally be able to get back to what they love.

In recent weeks, events like the Formula One British Grand Prix and the Goodwood Festival of Speed took place, both with tens of thousands of spectators.

The motor show industry is slowly getting back on its feet, and it’s hoped this summer will enable more companies to rebound after a tough 18 months.

Motor Show Events are getting straight back into the action with more events planned in September and November.

The Festival of Wheels will be taking place this weekend at Trinity Park, Ipswich on the 31st of July and the first of August.
