There’s a ‘Beauty ver­sus Beast’ theme this year, which will see pretty clas­sics from the likes of Tri­umph and Jowett pit­ted against mus­cle and cus­tom cars. It’s the TVR East Mid­lands Re­gional meet, and the show is cel­e­brat­ing 30 years of the Ford Capri 280. There’ll be plenty of trade, club, and food stalls. Vis­i­tors can camp on the Fri­day and Satur­day nights and there’s loads of en­ter­tain­ment lined up for the Sun­day. www.capri­, 0771 418 1250 (Alan). The Dou­ble 12 is al­ways guar­an­teed to pro­vide ex­cel­lent com­pe­ti­tion. Satur­day sees the speed tri­als held on the Mercedes-Benz World track, fol­lowed on Sun­day by the driv­ing tests. There’s a con­cours on both days, and cars will also be tack­ling the fear­some test hill. This year is also the 25th an­niver­sary of the mu­seum, so a spe­cial Sil­ver An­niver­sary tro­phy will be awarded to the best sil­ver car in the con­cours. www.brook­landsmu­

This is a real fam­ily event, and one we thor­oughly rec­om­mend. There’s al­ways an ex­cel­lent dis­play of clas­sics to drool over, and plenty of car clubs at­tend so you can chat with like-minded own­ers. A wide va­ri­ety of stands are avail­able to browse around, and the event fin­ishes with an auc­tion cour­tesy of Char­ter­house. Doors open at 9.30am, and be­ing a pop­u­lar show, you’ll want to get down to Som­er­set early. www.carsande­
