Show invite for clubs
The organisers of the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show say they are welcoming more classic car clubs than ever before to this year’s expanded three-day event.
More than 130 groups will attend, including 26 clubs making their show debut at Birmingham’s NEC, from 31 March to 2 April.
Leading the charge of the newbies is the MG Car Club, a regular attendee at the Classic Motor Show at the NEC every November and a club known for its fantastic displays.
Club general manager Adam Sloman says: ‘We’re really looking forward to appearing at the show for the first time this year – we’ve had a lot of feedback from members about how good the show is and we can’t wait to be part of it.’
Marque-specific clubs attending include the Freelander Owners’ Club, which kicks off a year of celebrations to mark the 20th anniversary of the Freelander in 2017; the Volvo Owners’ Club marks 90 years on the clock for the manufacturer, and UKSaabs pays tribute to 30 years of the Saab convertible.
With around 1000 vehicles on display, the interactive show once again promises a fantastic mix of live demonstrations, expert advice, stunning classics and specialists traders.
The BMW Car Club is one of more than 130 clubs taking part in this year’s show.
