Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, IP33 1LT

Motorsport East

Sunday 24 July 2022, 10am to 4pm

Whether you’re an F1 fan or cherish collectors’ sports cars you’ll want to be in pole position at the Our Bury St Edmunds Motorsports East day.

This has grown from an attraction that was part of the annual Our Bury St Edmunds Whitsun Fayre, to an event in its own right.

The 2021 event displayed a wide range of competition cars from the many disciplines of Motorsport. These range from cars that raced at Brooklands prior to WWII, to the latest 600 BHP Supercars, and many others in between. Local clubs, race and rally car preparation specialists, engine builders, and model makers were all represented.

There is no doubt that Motorsport faces changes in the coming years, as global warming takes effect, and we look towards new methods of propulsion for our cars. The UK Motorsport industry is a world leader, and to this end, there are plans for an all-electric rallycross car to be on display.

For those who would like to participate in Motorsport, the show presented the ideal opportunity to talk to the people currently involved. Whatever your chosen route, be it race, rally, rallycross, short-circuit (oval), trials, sprints, karting etc there was advice on hand. You may also like to get into the organisational side of the sport, again there people on hand to advise!

The show raised funds for charity Mission Motorsport, which works to help disabled members of the armed forces back into civilian life via the Motorsport industry, and also competition motoring.
