Coventry ring-road set to host motor car racing

Coventry is to become the first UK city for years to stage competitive motor-sport on public roads.

The council took advantage of a change in the law in July which gave local authorities the opportunity to suspend the Road Traffic Act.

Motofest 2015 has partnered with the British Automobile Racing Club (BARC) to stage a two-day programme of time-trials.

Festival director James Noble described Coventry as the "spiritual home of the British motor industry".
