 Over 200,000 people are expected to attend the motorsport event over four days from Thursday 13th July to Sunday 16th July.

Speaking earlier this week, Squadron Leader Tom Bould, Team Leader and Red 1 of the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, the Red Arrows, said: “It’s always spectacular to display at the Festival of Speed. In 2023, our updated display will, once again, aim to inspire those watching with a combination of precision manoeuvres and dynamic loops and rolls.  

"Visiting on the ground after our display and meeting visitors is always a real highlight and humbling for the team and is a brilliant opportunity to explain more about the work of the Red Arrows and Royal Air Force.”
