About the event
Tunerfest North is a Summer celebration of tuning, modification and performance and now a regular annual occasion that’s become firmly etched in the car-show season.
The Tunerfest concept was introduced in 2015 to showcase modern and iconic performance cars from around the world. Working in partnership with two of the country’s most famous circuits: Brands Hatch (Tunerfest South) and Oulton Park (TunerFest North) both events are designed to appeal to the serious modified car owner. And for 2019, a third event was added to the calendar: Tunerfest Midlands at Donington Park.
Brought to you by the promoters of Time Attack, here at Tunerfest North you will see some of the fastest and uniquely tuned cars both on and off the track. The show embraces everything that the modern tuning scene has to offer: from fierce competition on the circuit, to public track time, representation on site from over 30 car clubs with more than 700 cars on display – figures that make this year’s show our biggest Tunerfest North ever! Add to this, the combination of on-track action and off-track spectacle sets Tunerfest shows apart from the rest.
Also at the show a range of attractions, including an impressive supercar paddock and trade stands, as well as a rally car display and Drift Taxis on the in-field rally asphalt circuit, where you can take the sideways ride of you life! In keeping with Tunerfest tradition there’s the ever-popular Show and Shine competition that’s as much about modification and performance as it is a great paint job – and rewards the outright winner a cash prize of £1000. Yes £1000!!!
And of course, don’t miss the awesome Time Attack action on the circuit, the event hosting round four of this year’s Championship. The technical nature and topography of the Oulton Park circuit makes it a firm favourite with the drivers – and, because of the various vantage points, it’s a firm favourite with spectators too!
Be in no doubt that there’s some serious machinery in operation today running in the Pro Classes, with power outputs reaching in excess of 1000hp! Whilst in the Club classes, you’ll see road specification cars that are tuned and driven like you’ve never seen them before.
Also appearing will be ‘Run What You Brung’ Time Attack. This innovative addition is where owners can literally run what they own and find out what it’s like to drive against the clock in controlled and competitive conditions, without the stresses, strains and costs of regular motorsport.
Included in the all-day circuit action are a series of demonstrations that take place in between the competitive sessions. This includes a a spectacular pro-Drifting display, together with supercar and rally car demonstrations.
Plus at lunchtime, don’t miss the pit-lane walkabout session, when we offer spectators the opportunity to meet the Time Attack drivers and see their cars close up.
After its hugely successful introduction last year, the whole event will be live streamed on the Time Attack Facebook page. Live timing and information can be found on the following websites:
