It's almost here
Motorsport at the Palace 2013, in association with the Ancaster Group, is almost here and with so many new attractions, we’re looking forward to a really special couple of days.
Over 200 cars will take to the track over the 26-27 May, some piloted by returning drivers who simply can’t get enough of this challenging course, others driven by newcomers, keen to test themselves at this historic venue. And who can blame them, it’s not often drivers get the chance to compete on sections of a track that closed over 40 years ago; a track where Moss and Clark cut their teeth, and where Rindt made his name. Crystal Palace is steeped in motorsport history and we’re proud to help celebrate this unique heritage.
This year, spectators and competitors can see the drivers’ times immediately after their runs, via their smartphones, iPads or other such devilry. Click Here
Of course, it’s not all smoking tyres and oversteer! Away from the track there’s a plethora of events and attractions for all ages. New to this year’s Motorsport at the Palace is the Kit Car Village, - sponsored by Kit-Car Magazine - where you’ll find many eye-catching machines and helpful exhibitors.
We’ve got a real treat in store for motorcycle fans, as the Classic Racing Motorcycle Club is back with some outstanding vintage racing machinery. Other returning favourites include Diggerland, the London Karting Company and The Wright Events’ Barrel Train, while Kleers Premium Car Care Products will again be judging the many beautiful cars in the static show.
We’re delighted to have so many car clubs displaying their finest vehicles in the show area. Among the many highlights is a very rare 1966 Cortina 1500GT - Crayford Prototype, displayed by the Lotus Cortina Register. This car actually carried Jacky Ickx around Crystal Palace on his victory parade lap, following his success here in 1967. It’s a real piece of history and we’re delighted to welcome the car back to the Palace after so many years.
Visitors can also enjoy plenty of exhibitors and retail stalls, offering all kinds of motorsport-related produce, and of course, you can take a wander around the open paddock, where drivers and mechanics are always keen to stop and chat.
We’ve looking forward to another fantastic event; can’t wait to see you there!

- The return of this special event would revive the spirit and history of motor racing at Crystal Palace, allowing young and old to enjoy the paddock atmosphere of an eclectic mix of vintage and more modern racing machinery, while mixing with the equally eclectic owners and drivers.

- I found the whole experience most enjoyable. Set amongst lovely parkland and the spectators are always the cherry on top. I do appreciate performing in front of a crowd. I’ll be back for 2011, for sure.
