Not sure if someone wants to organise a LMC presence but I have been forwarded this information.

Hundreds of classic vehicles will be heading for Old Warden, near Biggleswade in Bedfordshire, on Easter Sunday, 31st March 2013, to take part in the Classic Rally and Autojumble Show organised by Gemini Events. The show is being held on the aerodrome of the historic and world-famous Shuttleworth Collection of vintage cars, aeroplanes, cycles and steam engines.

Richard Shuttleworth, a wealthy young man who raced Bugatti and Alfa Romeo cars in the 1930’s, won the Donington Grand Prix in 1935 but after a serious crash took up flying, saying it was ‘safer’. He built up a sizeable collection of cars and aeroplanes and at the age of just 24 flew a tiny monoplane to India and twice competed in the famous King’s Cup Air Race. Tragically, Richard was killed in a flying accident in 1940 but his legacy lives on in the magnificent Shuttleworth Collection that thrills and entertains visitors to this day. All pre-booked entrants to the car show will be able to purchase discounted tickets to the Collection at £8 per person instead of the usual £12.

The show will feature a huge selection of trade and autojumble stands, craft stalls, and play centre for the children, meaning that there will be something on site to entertain all family. During the day the Old Warden Model Club will be putting on two flying displays and will be on hand to chat about their hobby.

The event is also an ideal opportunity for enthusiasts to spring clean their garage or workshop as the ever popular Trunk Trader plots will be available. Just turn up on the day from 8am, pay £10 for a boot sale sized pitch, and cash in on all your unwanted items.

Judges will be on site all day looking for class winners and 'Car of the Show' and all qualifying vehicles will be entered into a draw to win a place on this year's London to Brighton Classic or Kit & Sports Car Run on 2nd June. Prize giving takes place at 4pm.

Pre-booked entry for classic vehicles is just a £3 administration charge  - with entrants receiving a commemorative classic rally tax disc - whilst public admission on the day is £8 per person. Accompanied children under 16 are free of charge and gates open at 10am.
 
Booking forms and full details of the event are on the Gemini Events website: www.classicmotorshows.co.uk or send a stamped addressed envelope to Gemini Events. 23 The Strand, Bromsgrove, Worcs. B61 8AB

BAD WEATHER FORCES POSTPONEMENT OF OLD WARDEN CLASSIC CAR  SHOW ON EASTER SUNDAY

 

 

Gemini Events regret to announce that this weekend’s Easter Sunday Classic Car Show and Autojumble at Old Warden, Bedfordshire is postponed until Sunday 13th October.

 

This is due to the show field becoming too soft as a result of the current adverse weather conditions.

 

Pre-registrations already purchased for this Sunday will be valid at the October show.

 
 

ENDS
