Festival Italia will be bigger and better this year when it returns on Sunday 13 August. This year’s event features a number of exciting new additions.
Renowned Italian performance car manufacturer Abarth will join Festival Italia as a headline sponsor. This new partnership will include a large amount of involvement from the ‘scorpion-badged’ marque on the day itself, including opportunities for guests to test drive a number of models on the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix loop.
On track action includes rounds of the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic and BRSCC Alfa Romeo Championship.
Iconic race cars will take to the circuit to perform a series of demonstration laps, offering a unique glimpse of sights and sounds of Italy’s rich racing heritage. This year Festival Italia also presents a number of popular F1 Demos.
All Italian car owners can also enjoy a massed parade lap to top off the day.

Competition cars from all ages will again be put through their paces on the Mercedes-Benz World test track. Selected cars will also run up the demanding Brooklands Test Hill. Visitors can expect to see – and hear– a wide variety of competition cars including Formula 1, F5000, CanAm, GTs, Touring cars, Group B rally cars and historic cars like the record breaking 1933 Napier Railton – holder of the outright lap record at Brooklands.
Owners of competition cars are invited to contact the organisers for an opportunity to take part in the track demonstration and the hill climb.
