American SpeedFest V will pay homage to the popular Fast & Furious movie franchise when it returns to Brands Hatch on 10-11 June for an all-American weekender, exactly two months from now. This new element of the show will celebrate one of the silver screen’s most enduring automotive brands with on-track demonstrations, an off-track feature display area, and much more.
A special Fast & Furious collection will take centre stage at SpeedFest V and include a number of replica machines from the films, offering exclusive photo opportunities to ticketholders. This will include a mixture of American and Japanese cars, as seen in the films, alongside other cars which fit in with the aftermarket modified cars scene.
In addition to this, the theme will extend to the circuit where Fast & Furious style cars will take part in special high-speed and drift demonstrations which will capture the flavour of the films on-track. Plus, there will be opportunities for fans to get involved with similar drifting experiences in the paddock.
MSV is proud to announce its support for the Paul Walker-founded Reach Out Worldwide (ROWW) organisation. SpeedFest visitors can help this great charity by jumping in a fully prepared car for a high-adrenaline drift ride around the paddock arena in true Fast & Furious style with an instructor from the Flat Out Factory drift experience. MSV is contributing its entire revenue to ROWW raised through the drift experience over the weekend. ROWW is a network of volunteers who provide their expertise to augment local resources following disasters across the globe.
Further exciting additions to the Fast & Furious celebration will be confirmed in due course!
The Fast & Furious collection will join a number of other replica vehicles from the world of cinema in special displays, creating a mini Hollywood ‘walk of fame’ at the Kent circuit. This new addition to the event joins an already-bustling line-up of non-racing activities at SpeedFest V, including record American car displays, live music, stunt shows, and children’s entertainment. Plus, there will be a full day’s racing on both Saturday and Sunday, with headline action from the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series – the only championship of its kind in the Europe!
