Three days of classic excellence sadly has come to an end, but what a show the organisers put together, from the oldest to the most modern classic cars there was something for everyone. This inaugural show kicked of 2015 in style, with exhibits not only from the premier league of Classic Dealers and established Auction Houses, but also Motoring Art, sculpture, designer furniture and lots more beside.

James May the highly respected presenter of BBC's Top Gear chose his 13 "Cars that changed the World" highlighting vehicles such as Austin Mini, Ford Model T & the Mercedes Benz Patent Motorwagen

Another James this time the well known TV Chef and confirmed petrol head exhibited some of his collection of car as well as opening the Classic Cafe within the exhibition hall.

The display area included the Grand Avenue celebrating Automotive Icons, with regular exhibitions of the vehicles running up and down this automotive catwalk. Cars such as a 1903 Olsmobile Curved Dash, 1934 Jaguar SS1, 1953 Mercedes Benz SL 300 "Gullwing", a reproduction of a 1962 Ford Saxon Cortina built with the aid of only 1 photograph, a shame that it never made production. In all 40 vehicles were exhibited dating from the late 1800's to the end of the twentieth century.

Motor Sport was well represented  with Formula 1 cars in attendence in the Motorsport Icons display which featured can raced by Sir Stirling Moss, and the late James Hunt, as well as Nelson Piquet;s 1980's Camel Lotus Judd Type 101.

This event can only get bigger, it has it all that you expect, and more and it is a shop window to the UK Classic scene with major dealers such as D&D, Classicmobila, Frank Dale & Stepson, Speedmaster and JD Classics in attendance some of which we have highlighted in or "Classic of the Day" feature. Major Auction houses brought along some of their future sale lots, inclusing Historics @ Brooklands, Coys and Silverstone.

Finally, if you're interested in motor related gifts and sculpture then you would not have been ignored, with a plethora of exhibitors displaying their artistic work, you will be able to see images of some of these exhibits in our event images in the link below
