Don’t come to the Festival of Speed’s F1 paddock expecting to see only Formula One cars. They may be the headline act, but there’s plenty more to see: touring cars, NASCAR, drifters, Le Mans racers, sixty years worth of Alpines, rally cars and more… you could easily while away a good few hours before you even get round to motorsport’s premier formula. And when you do? Contemporary teams include McLaren, Ferrari, Williams, Red Bull and Mercedes-Benz. Beyond that, there’s plenty of historical F1 cars, too – with the following categories all represented: ‘The Cosworth years’, ‘The turbo era and beyond’ and ‘Fearless but flat broke’.
We’ve captured it all in this great gallery.
