Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee
The 2018 Festival of Speed presented by Mastercard theme will celebrate the event’s 25th anniversary: “Festival of Speed – The Silver Jubilee”.
The first Festival, in June 1993, redefined what a car event could be, and, in the years since, it has firmly established itself as the world’s greatest celebration of motorsport and car culture. Now, to mark the Silver Jubilee, the Duke of Richmond (formerly Lord March) will choose his 25 favourite moments from the first 25 events – personal highlights which, in very different ways, have been landmarks in the Festival’s history. These moments, and the cars and drivers which created them, will be cornerstones of this year’s event, alongside the usual gathering of extraordinary vehicles from the dawn of motoring to the present day and beyond.
In what’s become an annual tradition at the Festival, the catch-all theme creates numerous opportunities to celebrate motoring’s and motorsport’s greatest pioneers and heroes, as well as the most iconic road-going and competition machines – on two and four wheels.
