The Classic & Sports Car Show was an enormous success last autumn with 15,150 visitors attending the inaugural event. Now the show is returning for 2016 – and it will be even bigger and better. The event will return to Alexandra Palace running from Friday 28 October to Sunday 30 October.
This year, the organisers have expanded the show, giving visitors even more to see and do over the three-day motoring celebration. Full details of the many themes and centrepieces will be announced in the coming months – but visitors can expect more than 300 of the world’s most prestigious classic cars, celebrity guests and the world’s most renowned dealers and collectors.
Last year’s event was packed to the rafters with amazing features. Visitors were treated to a ten-car display featuring The British Car Ever – as voted for by the public in a global poll – and a tribute to Aston Martin and Sir Stirling Moss’s single seaters. A host of motoring royalty took to the Interview Stage, with a line-up including Jaguar test driver Norman Dewis and Formula One supremo Ross Brawn – not to mention stands featuring the world’s greatest classic car dealers.
Visitors to the 2016 event can expect even more cars and stars as James Elliott, Group Editor of Classic & Sports Car and Show curator, explains: “I am already so excited about this year’s event; we’ve got a host of centrepieces and themes planned that will really blow people away".
"Our first show was such an enormous success, from displays including the Best British Car Ever, to the Interview Stage and its famous faces, and I can’t wait to bring the Classic & Sports Car vibe to Alexandra Palace again. Even bigger and better is certainly one way to describe this autumn’s event!”
Full details of the show’s content will be revealed over the coming months.
