Race Day Air Show celebrates the passion Richard Shuttleworth had for racing, both on the ground and in the air.

He was known for his skill at racing horses, motor vehicles and aircraft which saw him win many accolades including the Donington Park Challenge Trophy in 1935.

Our Race Day Air Show brings together icons of the aviation and the motor vehicle industry for a dramatic day of action both on our grass runway and the Bedfordshire skies.
