If you’re looking forward to classic car events over the next few months then we’ve got some cracking ideas. Don’t miss ‘em…
We know many classic and sports car owners like to tuck their vehicles away for the winter but here at Mike Brewer Motoring, we like to drive ours all year round especially as there are so many classic car events still to enjoy. If you’re like us, here’s a few of the events happening around the UK during these winter months that are worth braving the cold for…
British Sports & Performance Car Night – Thursday 16 December
If you’ve not been to London’s Ace Café before then you’re missing a real treat. There’s a packed calendar of classic car events, but we reckon this one is a great way to enjoy some pre-Christmas classic car viewing. Expect upwards of 50 brilliant motors and plenty of enthusiasts to chat with, and it all kicks-off at 6pm.
Newark Autojumble – Sunday 19 December
Never mind Christmas shopping – its bits for your classic you really want! In which case you’ll probably find them here, along with plenty of great cars and bikes on display. Gates open at 10am, but pay a little extra for early bird admission from 8.00am and you’ll get the pick of the parts.
Vintage Stony – Saturday 1 January
The Market Square in Stony Stratford is a great place to be if you fancy celebrating the New Year with some fine old cars. Free to attend, the event features a wealth of pre-1940 cars and bikes and the ‘one minute’s noise’ at midday is good fun, too. We’re sure you’ll enjoy this one.
Brooklands New Year’s Day Gathering – Saturday 1 January
We’re big fans of the brilliant Brooklands Museum, and heading along to this historic site is a cracking way to celebrate the start of 2022. It always delivers plenty of classic vehicles and enthusiastic visitors, and if it’s a bit chilly then we recommend starting the day with a bacon roll or two…
Autosport International, NEC Birmingham – Saturday 15 to Sunday 16 January – CANCELLED SINCE GOING TO PRESS
If you love motorsport this is a show you won’t want to miss. The weekend are the public days where you’ll be treated to fantastic cars from 70 years of motorsport, along with a thrilling Live Action Arena and plenty of trade and club stands. It’s a high-octane start to the New Year!
Historic Cars on Lower Marsh – Saturday 15 January
If you happen to find yourself in central London and fancy meeting some fellow classic car enthusiasts, then why not head along to this gathering. It takes place from 11.00am to 1.00pm and you’re bound to discover an interesting selection of cars to admire, although the organiser says cancellation is possible if the roads are particularly salty. Keep an eye on the website for details.
Bicester Sunday Scramble – Sunday 16 January
These events are hugely popular, and for good reason. Bicester Heritage is a great place to visit, with all manner of classic vehicle specialists, and the Scrambles always feature terrific vehicles and attract plenty of true petrolheads. Taking place from 9.00am-2.00pm, there’s lots to enjoy, but pre-booking is essential so don’t delay.
MG & Triumph Spares Day – Sunday 23 January
Being held at the Telford International Centre, this is a must for all fans of these fine British classics. Alongside a great array of cars there’s lots more to enjoy, including car clubs, traders, an autojumble, and vehicles for sale. It’s a cracking day out, and one we definitely recommend.
Mini Fair – Sunday 30 January
You probably already know that our own Mike Brewer loves his Minis, so this would be right up his street. Alongside cars for sale and a pride of ownership display you’ll also find plenty of traders and a concours, so it’s one that enthusiasts of the iconic British classic will certainly want to add to the diary.
Vintage Sports Car Club Driving Tests – Sunday 30 January
It’s back to Brooklands for a real treat of a day, one that sees around sixty pre-war cars tackle some tough driving tests as well as the famous Test Hill. There’s always a good mix of machinery and you’ll enjoy chatting to the enthusiastic owners, and it all happens from 10.00am-4.00pm.
