STREET racing will return to UK cities for the first time in scarcely 30 years.
The immature light has been given to theatre Fast Furious-style time trials on a ring highway around Coventry this summer.
The Motofest will see drivers race against the time and will be the first rival racing in a UK city given the Birmingham Superprix in 1990.
Motorsport on British city streets had been banned given then but a law change in Apr last year done a return possible.
The Government authorized manners that concede the Road Traffic Act to be temporarily dangling for certified motorsport events.
And as partial of the deal, Motofest has been handed a looseness to hold time trials and dilettante highway convene stages in the future.
Talks had been in place to create a London F1 Grand Prix to rival Monaco and Motofest could pave the way for the future.
Coventry – recently announced as UK City of Culture 2021 – is also the ideal plcae to bring motorsport back to the UK having been home to several iconic brands down the years.
The 2018 time trials will be done up from the British Automobile Racing Club’s (BARC) several championship series.
James Noble, Motofest Coventry festival director, said: “Motofest Coventry is very vehement and unapproachable to be at the forefront of bringing rival motorsport back to UK city centre roads.
“We have done no secret of the enterprise to horde rival motorsport on the Coventry Ring Road and we are now in a position to make this a reality.”
Motofest Coventry is a two-day festival dedicated to the city’s motoring heritage, which this year takes place on Saturday 2 Jun and Sunday 3 June.
There will be a operation of automotive activities holding place from pop-up and proof events to immobile displays and border events at Motofest Coventry, now the largest free civic motorsport festival in the UK.
