Motofest Coventry’s final Open Garage session will take place this weekend and it’s a party to which everyone is invited.
The “Party in the Rear,” taking place on Saturday 5 May at Coventry’s Fargo Village celebrates rear-engined vehicles including Porsche, VW, NSU, Skoda, Imp, Alpine and anything else with all the power going on at the back of the car.
The cars already signed up for Saturday’s rear engine showcase include two Porsche 996 Carrera 4S models, a Porsche 964 flatnose and a pair of Lotus Elises.
It’s the final Open Garage session and the final opportunity to experience a taste of what’s to come at the main Motofest Coventry event on June 2 and 3.
Motofest Coventry’s race director Darren Langeveld said: “The Open Garage sessions are an opportunity for people to get a feel for the main Motofest Coventry event by getting up close to some incredible pieces of machinery.
“Each session caters to the interests of different motoring enthusiasts and provides visitors with the chance to see static car and bike displays, on a smaller scale to what will be available at Motofest Coventry.
“So come along to Fargo Village and join the party, it’s the last chance this year before the main event.”
The first Open Garage session took place at Fargo Village last month and showcased the “Millennium Heroes,” welcoming 80’s, 90’s and 00’s iconic performance cars such as the GSis, GTIs, GT-Rs and Cosworths.
A range of custom and performance motorbikes were also on show at last month’s Open Garage sessions.
Motofest Coventry is a two-day festival dedicated to the city’s motoring heritage, which this year takes place on Saturday 2 June and Sunday 3 June.
The largest free urban motorsport festival in the UK will feature a range of automotive activities from pop-up and demonstration events to static displays and fringe events in and around Coventry’s iconic city centre.
