Motor sport legends to star in Worcestershire

| 25 Jul 2013

Sir Stirling Moss, Paddy Hopkirk and Barrie 'Whizzo' Williams will be at the Midland Automobile Club's Classic Nostalgia meeting on 27-28 July at Shelsley Walsh.

Moss will appear on Sunday, performing a number of duties including officially opening the Museum Bar.

Hopkirk and Williams will help celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mini Cooper by taking to the hill in examples of the brilliant compact and giving passenger rides to visitors.

Sunday’s Concours d'Elegance – sponsored by Classic & Sports Car – is open to the first 100 pre-1982 classics that enter before 12pm.

C&SC columnist Simon Taylor and deputy editor James Page will judge the competition, while Sir Stirling will lead a parade run of 15 shortlisted cars up the historic hill.

Serious competition will be a feature of both days, with a huge variety of classics from the likes of Lotus, Allard, Elden, Riley and MG.

The meet is expected to attract hundreds of classics from the 1950s and ’60s and visitors are encouraged to wear period attire, with prizes for the Best Dressed lady and gentleman.

Tickets can be purchased from the Shelsley Walsh website and are priced from £12.
