You'll get to witness Pre-1931 Vintage Racing Cars, Pre-1961 Racing Cars and road-going Pre-war Sports-Cars - all competing to win the trophy.
Off the tarmac, there is plenty of entertainment for all the family. With a Vintage fun fair, massage trailer (perfect for those wanting to take a bit of time out!), mini train rides – great for the little ones, plus oodles of Vintage car displays and an Army interactive zone with real-life military vehicles.
