Get set for an opera of speed and sound at Festival Italia this August!

Brands Hatch will be transformed into Little Italy for one day only when Festival Italia returns with a bumper line-up of themed motor racing, F1 demonstrations, and family entertainment this August.

Racing will be headlined by the Pirelli Ferrari Formula Classic series on Sunday 19 August, starring a wealth of ‘Prancing Horse’ machinery from the ‘70s, ‘80s and, ‘90s. This year’s racing line-up will be bolstered by the addition of a new Ferrari Club Race Series, which is open to modern race-prepared Ferraris including the 458.

Festival Italia 2018 will also boast its best ever F1 line-up, with 12 cars set to take part in high-speed demo runs throughout the day. These will include machines from Benetton, Osella, and Minardi, as well as a stunning Dallara powered by a Ferrari V12 engine!

Off track, there will be a bellissimo array of attractions to enjoy, ranging from wine tasting for the grown-ups and pizza making for the kids, to extensive Italian car displays and themed market stalls. Festival Italia is one of the most laid-back and family-friendly events on the Brands Hatch calendar!
