Minardi's Thunder at the Rock

For the last couple of year's Paul Stoddart has put on a showcase event for Formula 1 fans at Donington Park, to give fans the chance to get a little closer to Grand Prix racing. This year the event, which will be held on the August Bank Holiday weekend (August 30-31), has moved to Rockingham and will feature displays which will include Jos Verstappen, Nicolas Kiesa, Bryan Herta, Giorgio Pantano, David Saelens, Gianmaria Bruni and Stoddart himself in action in the F1 cars and the fleet of Minardi two-seater F1 cars. There will also be a strong musical element to the event with a concert being headlined by one of the hottest properties in the rock music world, The Darkness. There will also be a round of the exciting ASCAR Days of Thunder racing series plus Formula 1 pitstop demonstrations, autograph sessions and a fun fair.

"Minardi's Thunder events have always been a chance for the team to give something back to the sport in which it competes, while allowing the people who really matter - the fans - the opportunity to get closer than normal to the cars and drivers they support," said Stoddart."It's a great package, which just seems to get better and better each year. Thunder at the Rock is undoubtedly going to be the best yet."
