Classic and Sports Car announces fabulous new event


More than 300 of the world's most expensive and exclusive classic cars are set to descend upon London from 30 October-1 November for the capital's most exciting new show in decades, Classic & Sports Car – The London Show, with tickets on sale from 1 June.

The Classic & Sports Car show will gather the most prestigious classic car retailers and world-renowned collectors at the stunning Alexandra Palace, offering an incredible historically significant venue with acres of green space and fantastic views of the city. 

"Classic & Sports Car – The London Show is the essence of our magazine written large on the international stage and broadcast from one of London's most dramatic venues," said group editor James Elliott. "We are putting everything we know about classic cars into this show – and as a result it'll be a must-attend event. At Classic & Sports Car, passion counts for everything, so whether you're one of the world's richest collectors, a classic car dealer or simply a classic car enthusiast, you'll be warmly welcomed at Alexandra Palace."

The show has been timed to coincide with all of the capital's key motoring events – The Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, Regent Street Motor Show and Bonhams Veteran Car Auction, when the city becomes a magnet for enthusiasts from across the world.

Sir Stirling Moss said: "To me, London is the centre of the world and it is essential that it has a top-quality classic car show. Alexandra Palace is the perfect venue and, with Classic & Sports Car being the world leader in its field, it is an event people should definitely add to their diaries."

His thoughts were echoed by John Surtees, who said: "With events such as Goodwood, Britain has established itself as the centre of the classic car world. The capital, though rich in world-beating veteran events, has so far been starved of a fixture showcasing post-war cars that reflects its status: now it's getting one."

"Having previously worked with the Classic & Sports Car team track testing a wide variety of cars, I'm sure we have something really special to look forward to." Alain de Cadanet, racing driver and television presenter, said: "Great Britain has in many ways been a father figure to the veteran, vintage and classic car movement. Race, rallies and even the idea of auctioning older cars stems from the UK, so it's hardly surprising that the capital should also host a top-notch classic car show to rival anything else from around the world. Alexandra Palace is a magnificent, classic venue for our number one show and will provide an experience that you do not want to miss. Ink in the date: 30 October to 1 November.”

I used to enjoy the previous London Classic Car Shows at Ally Pally, but I can't help wondering why this show is only two weeks before the huge Classic Motor Show at the NEC? I would like to see your new show, but given the proximity to the established show, it's a no-brainer for me.

Is this meant to rival the newly established London Classic Car Show at Excel?



Agreed RoyC - simply ridiculous timing and clearly designed as a spoiler for Excel and the NEC, I wonder if the organisers of those two shows will be reducing their ads in the mag as a result?? There are other times of the year when it would be useful to have an indoor show, this isn't it. Ally Pally, though full of character, is very cramped and is very difficult for exhibitors to get in and out.

I'm out.
