August Classic Shows Newsletter

We hope you are having a good summer so far, we were in Dublin last weekend and missed the worst of the weather, thank goodness we didn’t have an event.

We were last out on two successive weekends at the end of July, firstly on Sunday 20th July at Bodelwyddan Castle in North Wales and the following weekend at Capesthorne Hall near Macclesfield. We had the usual excellent turn out of cars and bikes at Bodelwyddan with Steve Elnor being awarded car of the show for his superb Jaguar XK140, Malcolm Halliwell bike of the show for his Laverda Jota and The Cavalier and Chevette club being awarded best club stand for an excellent display appropriately enough on Vauxhall/Opel day. The following weekend we were at Capesthorne Hall near Macclesfield with Richard Perry being awarded bike of the show for his 1939 Vincent, car of the show was Tony Darkes with his VW type 1 van. A big thanks to Nigel Hughes who coordinated a superb display from the association of Singer Car Clubs who took pride of place in front of the house with participants coming from all over the UK and even as far afield as the Netherlands. There are some photos of some of this outstanding display can be found on the strip to your right.

Moving towards the end of August we have three events over the bank holiday weekend, Capesthorne Hall on 24th August followed by Thoresby Park on Monday 25th. If you are unlucky you will see me going at great speed between the two venues on Sunday night followed by a long line of rusty old transit vans filled with autojumblers doing both events. The event at Thoresby was simply outstanding in May with a fantastic turn out of trade, vehicles and public so we are hoping for decent weather and a similar turn out. If you haven’t visited this event you are missing a treat and one well worth travelling some distance to attend. Capesthorne should be good too with the Mercedes Benz club taking pride of place in front of the house. Autojumble stalls are free at Capesthorne on the Sunday so why not take the chance to clear your garage but don’t forget there is no Saturday set up?

We will be at Blenheim Palace on both days over the weekend with classic car day on Sunday and a more general Festival of Transport on Monday with classic cars, bikes, Mini’s, VW’s, customs, Americans etc. Autojumblers can trade at Blenheim Palace on both days but just pay for one day with set up from 2pm on Saturday.

More news about our last two all out door shows of the year at Cholmondeley and Hoghton Tower to follow but for now we look forward to seeing you over the bank holiday weekend.
