Get Ready For Life in the Fast Lane at Motorsport East

A motorsport world champion is one of the special guests at the Our Bury St Edmunds Motorsport East event on Sunday (July 16). Joining the free fun day out for all the family will be seven-year-old Mason Carberry from Stanton, recently crowned Ninja Kart World Champion and believed to be the youngest ever World Champion in the Short Circuit formula.

A show of cars and sporting vehicles will fill the town centre, with more than 65 different exhibits all curated by well-known local rally cross commentator and motorsport journalist Arthur Debenham. Laura Cooledge – a Women in Motorsport Ambassador and Club Development Officer at Anglia Motor Sport Club co-hosts the day.

Motorsport East will feature some spectacular competition vehicles – as well as Mason’s Ninja Kart, which he has been invited to take to South Africa to race, there will also be a recent Le Mans winner on display. Two 1930s Talbot 105s that a fortnight previously were first and second in the Le Mans Classic for pre-war vehicles will also be on show, courtesy of John Rushton.

Chief Executive of Our Bury St Edmunds Mark Cordell said: “The line up for this event gets better every year and I am delighted that these recent winners are able to join us. In addition, there’ll be a number of free attractions for all the family at arc shopping centre. And of course it’s a great opportunity to just make the most of our fabulous town centre and enjoy everything else that it offers too.”

One of the attractions that’s expected to be hugely popular is the rare opportunity to drive an F1 Stealth Racer Simulator – at no charge (age/height restrictions apply). Take part in our competition and you could find yourself winning a fabulous gift card prize. And don’t miss the chance to get up close to the first electric super-car to be built in this country with this exciting Mini confirmed as an exhibit too.

This year the event’s chosen local charity is St Nicholas Hospice Care. Any donations will be gratefully received.

Admission to Motorsport East is free and it runs from 10am to 4pm.
