After successfully running in 2012, thousands of spectators are expected to return to Balmoral Park, Maze/Long Kesh for an all-new, two-day format that will feature a variety of attractions to keep spectators of all ages entertained.

There will be rallying on an all-new, all-access Rally Spectator Stage, together with an array of exotic machinery, off road driving action, Motocross, Autotesting, Drifting, Segway experience, as well as a family carnival and music stage.

The event will also feature Northern Ireland’s ‘Go Motorsport Live’ event, where spectators will have the opportunity to enjoy passenger rides in the Autosolo cars. Local motor clubs will also be on site, ready to provide spectators with details on how to get involved in motorsport through their local club, either as a marshal, organiser or competitor.

The event is proudly supported by the NI Tourist Board, Lisburn City Council, and Ulster Automobile Club. Keep up to Speed at www.festivalofspeedni.com
