I don’t think any other NI motoring event can boast a range of show cars, drag racing, drifting, a rally stage, a sprint and a parachute display team under one venue, and for the meagre £10 entry fee. And there was even sunshine. This was the unique appeal of the excellent Speed Weekend, held at Lisburn’s Balmoral Park.
The event, previously known as the Festival of Speed pulled great crowds across the weekend, no doubt attracted by the wide range of motorsport disciplines on offer.
One of the star attractions of the event was the autotest, with guest local BTCC legend Colin Turkington making an appearance in the driving seat of an MX-5.
The drag racing was also a huge attraction to the crowds as some of the quarter mile heavyweights turned up in their custom built drag cars to entertain.
