One-day show will be packed with cars and spares

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Epic Battles -


If you’re look­ing for bits for your MGB or Tri­umph Stag, then you can’t af­ford to miss this packed one-day cel­e­bra­tion of both man­u­fac­tur­ers’ cel­e­brated clas­sics.

More than 20 clubs are tak­ing part in the 19 Fe­bru­ary event at Stoneleigh Park in War­wick­shire, and clas­sic spe­cial­ists from across the UK will be bring­ing along spares to the show’s au­to­jum­ble and trade ar­eas. The show’s open­ing hours are 9.30am-4pm, al­though we’d rec­om­mend ar­riv­ing early if you’re on the hunt for par­tic­u­lar parts for your Abing­don or Can­ley clas­sic.

MG and Tri­umph-only park­ing will be laid on for show­go­ers, al­though we did spot a few other clas­sics sneak­ing in at last year’s event. This area is usu­ally one of the day’s high­lights, and where the event lives up to its ‘In­ter­na­tional’ billing – in pre­vi­ous years CCW has bumped into clas­sic own­ers who’ve come from as far afield as the Benelux coun­tries and Scan­di­navia in search of clas­sic spares that can of­ten prove to be elu­sive out­side of the UK.

Event di­rec­tor Tom Sid­dall says ad­vance ticket sales are up 20 per cent com­pared to last year’s event, and that there’s still time to book yours through the show’s web­site: ‘We are all look­ing for­ward to The MG & Tri­umph Spares Day 2017. More than 200 traders will be ex­hibit­ing at this year’s event sup­ported by a fan­tas­tic ar­ray of car clubs.

‘ The event will spread over three ex­hi­bi­tion halls with a ded­i­cated MG and Tri­umph park­ing area set aside for those ar­riv­ing in their pride and joy.’

Look­ing for elu­sive spares for your MG or Tri­umph? Chances are you’ll find them at Stoneleigh.
