Join C&SC and H&H at Chateau Impney for free classic car event


An innovative free classic car event will be held in Droitwich on 3-4 December. Centred around an auction to be held on the Wednesday and backed by C&SC, the H&H Christmas Gala will take place at the impressive Chateau Impney, which is itself planning to revive its illustrious past by re-opening as a hillclimb venue in the near future.

The role the Droitwich Spa hotel played in hosting speed events for a decade from 1957 is why it was selected for this event.

Now, classic car enthusiasts are being urged to turn up in their droves – and preferably in their classic cars – to enjoy a day out with like-minded enthusiasts.

C&SC will be out in force, there will be the H&H sale to try and resist bidding on, plus catering – including complimentary mince pies and mulled wine – club, dealer and trade stands.

The centrepiece, however, will be an exhibition of cars that ran at Chateau Impney in period, such as Doc Taylor's Caesar Special, ERAs, HMW-Jaguar (C&SC, November) and more.

A 200-person dinner celebrating the venue's motor sport history is to be held on the evening of 3 December with guest speakers Barry Cryer and hillclimb champion David Good, but that is already a sell-out.

So, whether you come for the whole day or just pop in do check it out and come and say hello. Better still, arrive in a classic and become part of the show.

Current auction headliners include a 1930 Bentley 6.5 Litre Le Mans 'evocation' with an estimate of £575-675,000 and a 1951 Aston Martin DB2 (£320-360,000).

All the details you need can be found here.



I'm very much looking forward to this event...and the start of Hillclimbing at the Chateau once again. I wish it every success!!
