Prince Charles is shutting down The Mall in London to display environmentally friendly vehicles for 10 days in September. The Prince is not only a keen environmentalist but a collector of Aston Martins and other sports cars, and the nexus of both conservation and automobiles is an appropriate area of interest for him.

The Prince of Wales’ Start Festival, as the event is called, will kick off on September 5th with a race between Charles’ train (which runs on biodiesel) and a fleet of green vehicles, which will take them from Glasgow to London. The Fesitval will celebrate more than just cars, as all kinds of green products will be featured alongside the auto exhibit.

Entry to the Start Festival will cost £15, but the car display will be free on September 12th. The Festival runs until September 15th.
