A BROMYARD Speed Festival will return following a 70-year absence.

The Bringsty Grand Prix will take place the day before the festival on April 1, and is planned to be a re-creation of the event last held in 1947.

The event is being run as a time and observation trial for pre-1954 bike machines.

Using land owned by the same families as the original event the course and sections will include climbs, descents, ledges, bog and water splashes.

Run as a fun event it is intended to give entrants the opportunity to use their bikes in this classic environment.

Bromyard Speed Festival which showcases cars and bikes of all ages around the streets will take place on April 2.
