About the Event
Tunerfest Midlands 2023 sees the third running of this spectacular and action-packed show at Donington Park.
The Tunerfest concept was introduced in 2015 to showcase modern and iconic performance cars from around the world, the events designed to appeal to the serious modified car owner. Initially working in partnership with two of the country’s most famous circuits, Brands Hatch (Tunerfest South) and Oulton Park (TunerFest North) and in 2019, Donington Park (Tunerfest Midlands) was added to the calendar.
Brought to you by the promoters of Time Attack, the show embraces everything that the modern tuning scene has to offer: from fierce competition on the circuit to representation on site from a variety of car clubs. In fact, here at Tunerfest Midlands you will see a range of the fastest and uniquely tuned cars both on and off the track, some of the best saloon car racing in the UK with the new Racing Hondas Championship and spectacular action from the Motorsport UK Drift Pro Championship.
Also at the show is a range of attractions, including the Hyper Drift Paddock experience and showcase, an impressive Supercar collection and extensive trade area.
In keeping with true Tunerfest tradition there’s also the ever-popular Show and Shine competition, supported by SONAX GB that’s as much about modification and performance as it is a great paint job.
And of course, don’t miss the awesome Time Attack action on the circuit, the event hosting round six of this year’s Championship. The technical nature and topography of the Donington 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.
