Wonders at the wheel

FROM doughnutting racing cars to bambino cars with six-year-old drivers, from E Type Jaguars to an original 1989 Formula One Lotus, the Credit Suisse Jersey International Festival of Motoring at the weekend had it all.

FROM doughnutting racing cars to bambino cars with six-year-old drivers, from E Type Jaguars to an original 1989 Formula One Lotus, the Credit Suisse Jersey International Festival of Motoring at the weekend had it all.

Now in its 11th year, the event attracted thousands of spectators over the course of the three days and has been hailed a big success by organisers.

In fact, Friday night’s crowd at the moonlight sprints on Victoria Avenue was so big that sections of the barriers protecting spectators had to be reorganised to cope with the numbers.

Other highlights of the weekend included hill climbs at Westmount and Mount Bingham, which aside from a couple of small incidents went without a hitch, and an Active Area beside the Grand Hotel where spectators had the chance to see karts, cars and bikes racing and giving exhibitions.
