Race Day

Sunday 1 October

Richard Ormonde Shuttleworth’s passion for racing, vintage cars, and aviation is at the very heart of The Shuttleworth Collection’s Race Day. As the end of season finale, activities on the day will include vintage aircraft flying displays and mock air races, ground show entertainment and static exhibits, visiting car and motorcycle clubs, and the Shuttleworth Sprint. A ‘classic’ sprint course along a grass runway, some of the world’s finest veteran and vintage race cars will be taking part before the fun of mock air races and vintage aircraft displays.

Come in 1920’s fashions and get into the spirit of the between the wars era for fabulous end of season finale!
