Louise Rollins, the event organiser and member of Rotary Club of High Wycombe said about the event:

“This event is unique, not only because all profits will go to charity, but the elegant and masterful beauties we have lined up are going to blow our audience away. We are lucky to have access to a long, straight stretch of runway, massive thanks to Booker Airfield for giving Sound of Speed the pleasure of the space, perfect for high performance cars to run full throttle time and time again. Finally we are incredibly excited to offer a J40 pedal race for all our budding car buffs.”

Ruth Dunkin, Head of Community & Events at Thames Valley Air Ambulance said about the sponsorship:

‘We are delighted to have been chosen by the Rotary Club of High Wycombe as the main beneficiary charity of their Sound of Speed event because everyday anyone in our community could be in urgent need of our service. Our pilots, paramedics and doctors work together, at the frontline of saving lives across the region 19-hours a day, 365 days a year. Rotary clubs are huge supporters and play a vital role in our team, because of groups like them, our crew can deliver advanced medical care to people in an emergency.’

Set to be an outstanding, fast-paced event of exotic cars, yummy food, car gear and friendly faces.
