CarFest South 2019

23-25 August will see the 8th CarFest South at Laverstoke Park.

Final tickets are on sale on 1 May at 8am from here.

Since Chris Evans announced he was leaving BBC Radio 2, there have been a few changes announced for the festival. It will no longer solely benefit BBC Children in Need but will now support a range of UK Children’s charities, including The Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust, Starlight Children’s Foundation, Teenage Cancer Trust and Rainbow Trust.

50% of profits will still go to Children in Need and the other charities will receive 10% of the total funds raised.


This year Carfest will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Jody Scheckter F1 World Championship. The collection includes his Tyrell P34 six-wheeler and his championship winning Ferrari 312 T4.

There will also be two paddocks showing everything from autocross, historic rally, stadium super trucks and Le Mans to drift and movie cars.

The new DBS Superleggara Volante will be on the track. It has a top speed of 211mph and a V12 twin-turbocharged engine. It’s the fastest convertible Aston.
