MotoFest Coventry launches new Drift Arena
MotoFest Coventry, in partnership with E.ON Drive, is to host a new dedicated Drift Arena with The Crewsade team set to showcase all the best in “smokin hot tyre and sideways action” across the festival weekend.
The Crewsade Team, supported by Monster Energy, will provide dynamic displays of the skill and precision driving involved in competitive drifting in the new Drift Arena, based at the Coach Park, White Street, Coventry City Centre, with their roster of drivers performing each day on both Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June.
Each of the Crewsade team taking part in the Drift Arena is a major name in the drifting, stunt, competition or precision driving world and includes Al Harris, Julian Smith, Peden Nielsen, Monky London and Many More!
Alongside the Crewsade Team, performing in the new Drift Arena will be One Wheel Wavey, described as a ‘Raise-it-up Urban Motorbike Ninja’. If the name wasn’t obvious, Wavey spends way more time on one wheel than two and this urban bike stunt performer and YouTuber is considered one of the biggest names in the UK Bike-Life scene.
Darren Langeveld, MotoFest Coventry Race Director, said: “We are excited to announce our new live-action Drift Arena – which with its city centre location, high-octane atmosphere and thrill-a-minute programme is set to be one of the highlights of the festival weekend.
“The Crewsade Team, supported by Monster Energy, features a roster of well-known drivers, who are set to provide an awesome showcase of drifting and precision driving. They will be supported by One Wheel Wavey, an incredible stunt bike performer who will wow the crowds with his daring one and two-wheeled exploits.
“MotoFest Coventry just keeps getting bigger, better and more varied each year and our new Drift Arena is another exciting addition to the festival programme.”
Councillor Abdul Khan, Deputy Leader at Coventry City Council and Cabinet Member for Events, said: “MotoFest is a fantastic annual event for the city and I am delighted that it is growing each year.
“The new Drift Arena will be a great addition to the weekend. I do hope residents and visitors attend what is likely to be one of the city’s best free events.”
With the new Drift Arena and the Crewsade Team very much part of MotoFest Coventry’s motoring present, the motoring future will also be showcased at this year’s festival with the latest alternatively fueled vehicles, electric cars and advanced automotive technology.
The new future technology zone, based in the main Greyfriars Green festival site, will see exhibitors committed to showcasing the latest electric vehicles and motorcycles. Many of those two and four-wheeled exhibits will also take part in dynamic displays on the main sprint circuit and the motorsport and drift arenas.
There will also be demonstrations of autonomous vehicle technology and future transport solutions on Friday 2 June – a new additional day to the MotoFest Coventry weekend, with more announcements to follow soon regarding the full programme of events.
MotoFest Coventry is a two-day festival dedicated to the city of Coventry’s motoring heritage, taking place on Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June. It will feature a unique blend of racing demonstrations, static displays, live music and anything else with a connection to Coventry, transport and the city’s motoring heritage.
