• Rockingham Cars & Stripes 2016

    POSTPONED TO 2017.
    Would have been showcasing all things Americana, the event will appeal to people of all ages, bringing together all the razzmatazz from across the pond to the home of the UK’s only-banked Oval Circuit.

    We are disappointed to announce the postponement Cars & Stripes American Auto-Fest, which was due to be held at Rockingham over the weekend of July 2/3 2016.

    Cars & Stripes was launched in 2015 and received much positive feedback from all those who attended. As a result we entered into discussions with several third parties to provide support and partnership to grow the event. Due to circumstance beyond our control with these third parties, this has not been possible and we were left with the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the event to 2017.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have supported this event, both in 2015 and this year. The Rockingham team will continue to work on Cars & Stripes with the aim of bringing it back bigger and better in 2017. A new date will be announced later in the year – watch the Rockingham website for details.

    We will of course offer refunds to advance ticket purchasers, who will be contacted directly by our ticket sales partner.
    An array of American beauties representing all sections of the automobile world from across the decades, will be taking part in the static Cars & Stripes Show ‘n’ Shine competition as well as parade laps on track.There will be the opportunity to experience the incredible thrill of being within touching distance of the infamous Rockingham wall in a genuine NASCAR or drive an American muscle car on the infield circuit.

    If that wasn’t enough, the Pickup Truck Championship will be back to provide the racing action with Mark Willis looking to defend his Rockingham 100 title. A firm favourite with the home crowd, drivers will battle it out at breath-taking speeds to be crowned 2016 champion.
    Away from the track, there will be live music on the Cars & Stripes stage, family entertainment, children fun fair rides and attractions, trade stands and American-themed food & drink outlets, including the Rockingham Diner.

    This year’s event was set to be much bigger and louder with more action-packed family-friendly entertainment in the pipeline, so keep checking www.cars-and-stripes.co.uk for regular updates or follow Cars & Stripes on Facebook and Twitter.

      I did this may years ago. They provided us with good hard standing for the showing of the cars and then we did a parade lap with one of the Ascar drivers hanging out the t-top waving to his adoring fans!!!
      After the parade lap we had one fast lap behind a pace car and then a some fun with the exhaust apprieciation tunnel. A good day out but overshadowed by one of the cars on display having their valve caps stolen. Minor maybe, but still not pleasant when it happens to you.
      Also, a long day. They wanted all the cars in long before gates opened to the public so i think we had a 4am leave that morning!!
