Modified Nationals and the National Hot Rod Show are back for 2020 under the umbrella title Autofest. The re-branded event, from motorsport specialist No Limits Events and Promotions, will be launched at East of England Arena & Events Centre on May 30.

The event is a two-day festival and lifestyle event devoted to customised vehicles and culture, offering driving demonstrations, static displays, live event stages, club stands and traders, plus a tattoo convention, all taking place throughout the venue’s indoor and outdoor event spaces.

As much a celebration of the culture of car customisation and modification as the cars themselves, East of England Autofest is striving to make it a family event with plenty of attractions including live bands and DJs, drift car and monster truck rides, bouncy castles and children’s rides as well as more than 100 trade stalls.

The show is the latest in a string of motorsport and motoring events to choose East of England Arena as its preferred venue. East of England Arena’s oval track and grandstand has been the home circuit of the UK Championship Speedway team, the Peterborough Panthers, for decades and so the venue is well known in motorsport circles.

East of England Arena’s business development manager, Dean Rees, welcomed the venue’s latest motorsport event, saying: “No Limits Events and Promotions has a great track record in bringing loud and exciting motorsport festivals to large audiences of fans and enthusiasts, and I have no doubt that East of England Autofest will be a great success.”
