Festival of Wheels rolls into Trinity Park this summer, with plenty to get your motor running.
It’s the largest event of its kind in the south east, with the rarest and most glamorous cars, bikes, trucks and more coming together at the Ipswich showground from August 4-5.
Hosted by Motor Show Events, attractions include tractor pulling, with 1000bhp monsters popping wheelies and roaring down the track.
There’ll be football with a two-wheeled twist, the Lowriders showdown featuring some of the craziest dancing cars you’ll ever see and the UK’s best riders from BMX and MTB going head to head in a stunt battle to find out who’s king of two wheels.
You can get in on the action with The Red Dragon Monster Ride Truck, the only tubular-framed race specification ride truck in Europe with 6.5 litre Chevy V8 engine. The Suffolk Land Rover Owners Club will be raising money for local charities by taking you around the mini off-road course. There’s also the chance to drive a truck with Clive Shaw Trucking.
On Saturday the Bolddog FMX Team bring the largest, most sophisticated FMX landing ramp anywhere in the world to Ipswich.
It enables riders to jump gaps of more than 75ft and perform death-defying tricks. On Sunday the Broke FMX Stunt Team perform spectacular stunts.
