Radio 2 Breakfast Show DJ and famed petrolhead Chris Evans is launching a family-friendly classic-car festival for 2012 tagged CarFest.
The event will take place over the 24-26th August Bank Holiday weekend at former F1 World Champion Jody Scheckter’s organic farm at Laverstoke Park and raise money Children in Need.
There will be an airshow on Sunday 26th August that Chris was plugging on his Breakfast Program on Tuesday 13th March, and this is what he said at 08:20am:-
‘One of the most impressive things I have ever seen at an air display was a glider acrobatic display and the glider starts at the top and then works its way down and does all these magical things – and all you can hear is the whooshing of the air – and its really loud and really dramatic when it gets to the bottom of a loop the loop and the g-forces when its most active…I think a glider display would be amazing – and very peaceful and very spiritual, you know – imagine on a Sunday afternoon….?’
And then again towards the end of the program
‘ There is nothing more impressive than aerobatic gliders in operation, an acrobatic glider team (apart from Open heart surgery and general triumph over tragedy) from an entertainment point of view…’
So we have a fan in high places!
