They always put on an amazing show. Went for the flame and thunders show on the Saturday. What a way to finish off with the jet cars and fireworks following it down to the finish. I would highly recommend for a family day out.

One of the best things to do in Northamptonshire. Many different styles of event with different cars each week and let not forget the European rounds 😉
