MotoFest Coventry is an annual automotive festival in England’s Midlands. 

Citroen UK called it, “A non-stop two days of family fun (that) celebrates the very best cars and the vibrant culture of the UK’s Motor City. It also features a unique blend of competitive motor sports, including official championship rounds of various race series, motor sport demonstrations, static displays, live music and entertainment.”
