Motoring fans and the whole family can get revved up for a great day out on Saturday and Sunday, August 9-10.

ROARING engines, sleek classic cars and the latest supercars will be returning to North Devon this weekend for the Castle Hill Car Festival.

The estate at Filleigh will be bursting on Saturday and Sunday with all things motoring and a great day out for the whole family.

Event sponsor Park Lane Wealth Management has also teamed up with the North Devon Gazette to offer lucky readers two opportunities to win a pair of VIP race day tickets to Brands Hatch on August 31 for the British GT championship – see below.

Meanwhile, Filleigh will be fizzing with live Formula One action on the track, plus a Group C Le Mans Racer and the Appleby Engineering new Bentley Continental GT3 race car.

Drivers can also experience the thrill of the paddock and the track themselves with the 0.8 mile Track Sprint Challenge.

The estate will be gleaming with up to 1,000 classic cars on display, including a display of classic Maseratis.

In the arena, vehicle parades and a range of family entertainment will keep all ages amused, plus there is a children’s funfair area.
