Qualifying Day 2 – Thursday 15th June 2017

Day 3 – Friday 16th June 2017
There is no racing on Friday, with the pit lane open to the public all day. Those with a General Admission ticket can jostle for photographs with the drivers in front of the garages. In the evening, the crowds descend on the town centre where the teams parade in open-top classic cars. Back at the Thomas Cook Sport Village relax with a drink from the bar before enjoying our famous Friday Night Party.
Race Day 4 – Saturday 17th June 2017
A final practice session allows drivers check the setup for the last time and if necessary adjust for forecast weather conditions. As the clock approaches 3pm the tension mounts as the cars line up along the grandstand straight. It goes up another notch as the band plays the national anthems and the green flag drops. Enjoy the festival atmosphere on site, with our bar and catering staying open through the night.

From midday spectators start to throng the grandstands. At 3pm this year’s winner is crowned with drivers and mechanics finally able to breathe easily. The Thomas Cook Sport Village is open for one more night with live entertainment till late.
