Motors By the Mote

Motors by the Moat returns to Leeds Castle on 12th and 13th May this year with a brand new programme of live stunt shows, parades and hundreds of vintage, high performance and classic cars on the lawns. New for 2018, watch Terry Grant, international stunt driver and multiple world-record holder in a brand new jaw-dropping stunt routine set against the magnificent backdrop of the castle.

For the first time ever, Motors by the Moat will showcase some of best, fastest and most interesting cars attending in daily parades; see the cars in action and listen to them roar as they parade down the main drive with expert commentary.

Why not take a selfie with Mater and Lightning McQueen lookalike cars; there will also be mini fairground rides for children to enjoy and rides in an RAF Red Arrows simulator for those brave enough. Visit the wartime area and enjoy a cup of tea from the NAAFI wagon while getting up close to some fascinating military vehicles.

With a host of limited edition vehicles, modified cars, kit cars and American cars on display, the weekend event has something to offer everyone. Visit dealership stands and see the newest luxury models showcased with the chance to do some shopping and pick up some car accessories from trade stands.

What’s more, if you’re feeling peckish there will be a variety of catering outlets available in converted vehicles such as an ambulance, milk float and a double decker bus bar!
