The world-famous festival celebrates its 47th running in 2017 and the list of winners reads like a who's who of motorsport. F1 star Jenson Button is included in this illustrious roll-call, alongside Johnny Herbert, Eddie Irvine and Anthony Davidson.
The Festival was inaugurated soon after the formula was created, which has long been seen as the natural stepping stone from karting into single seaters. Bereft of wings, the cars promote superb racing and the Festival's 'winner takes all' format guarantees great action. This year's festival will once again shine the spotlight on the Kent-engined variety, following the revival of this tradition a few seasons ago.
