Classics to descend on Old Warden Park


A wide range of classics is expected to attend the Classic Rally and Autojumble Show at the aerodrome home of the world-famous Shattleworth Collection on Easter Monday, 1 April.

Everything form Morris Minors to Austin Sevens and Stars and Stripes muscle cars will vie for Car of the Show, with individual categories including pre-1939 cars, 1970-’88 Sports & GTs and American Cars up to 1988.

All qualifying vehicles will be entered into a draw to win entry to this year's London to Brighton Classic or the Kit & Sports Car Run, which are on 2 June.

Trunk Trader plots will be available on the day (costing £10 for a boot-sale sized pitch) for those wanting to convert unwanted parts and automobilia into cash.

Show visitors will be able to purchase reduced-price tickets for entry to the Shuttleworth Collection at £8 per person rather than the usual £12.

It includes cars such as a 1899 Benz International dogcart, a 1901 Locomobile steam car and a 1912 Blackburn monoplane Type – D.

The stockpile of exotic classics was started by Richard Shuttleworth, who won the Donington Grand Prix in 1935, flew to India in tiny monoplane aged 24 and died in a plane crash in 1940.
