The smell of burning rubber, screeching tyres and a throaty roar could be heard in Bournemouth’s Lower Gardens recently as Schumacher’s Benetton Formula One championship car sped through for a demonstration and taster of what’s to come at the new Wheels Festival – May 24-26 May 2014!

Launching this exciting festival in spectacular style, the magnificent F1 car was joined by an array of pedal power and vehicles of every type. The super line-up showcased included a sleek yellow Lamborghini Murcialago, vintage pedal bikes, a 1928 Bentley, Bigfoot Monster Truck, Penny-farthing, freestyle motocross stunt bike, custom bike, James Bond Aston Martin DB5, Dakar rally car, a 1931 Ford Sedan, a 1953 Pontiac Catalina, two unicyclists and Brum, the children’s car.

The new festival is an exciting new event which will jump start the already incredible FREE summer event programme next May (24-26 May 2014). It will be Britain’s biggest FREE wheels themed family festival, packed with high energy events taking place on the seafront and across the town including:
