The countdown has started to Aberdeenshire’s biggest super car extravaganza.
SpeedFest, the flagship fundraising event for the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford, is being staged on Sunday, July 3 and will showcase some of the finest record-breaking vehicles in the motoring world.
Acclaimed stunt driver Russ Swift has already been confirmed as the star act and returns to the north-east to wow the Alford crowds.
A Ferrari F40, F50 and Enzo will showcase some of Italy’s finest offerings to the supercar world and the impressive display will be topped off with the addition of a stunning Bugatti Grand Prix racer, owned locally by the Oag family.
Museum curator, Mike Ward, said: “We have several things this year that will create great excitement, but I think a star contender for the show could be a 1905 Fiat land-speed record contender which has never been seen in Scotland before.
“So there is a real opportunity to see things that are unusual and will stand out.”
However, it isn’t just conventional cars which will be taking centre stage in the proceedings.
As Mr Ward explained: “We have an electric car coming from Stuttgart University, which holds the world record for acceleration for an electric vehicle, going from 0 to 60mph in just over one second, which it can do on our track here.
“Tesla are a very welcome returning manufacturer to SpeedFest, they bring electric car technology right up to date with their fantastic all-electric cars, giving SpeedFest a topical and even futuristic aspect.
“It’s going to be a really fantastic event and we have definitely pulled out all the stops.”
