Suc­cess for clas­sic hub’s in­au­gu­ral event

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - John May­head

An au­to­mo­tive her­itage hub has hailed its first event as a suc­cess.

More than 250 clas­sic cars and mo­tor­cy­cles at­tended the Clas­sic Mo­tor Hub’s in­au­gu­ral Cof­fee & Clas­sics meet in Glouces­ter­shire.

The for­mer RAF site at Abling­ton, near Bibury, of­fers free space for clubs and ral­lies to use for events, as well as cars for sale via Cotswolds Col­lec­tors Cars’ show­room.

Hub owner, Martin Chisholm, has other sur­prises planned for forth­com­ing Cof­fee & Clas­sics meet­ings, but is be­ing coy with the de­tails. ‘ We’re plan­ning on hav­ing some re­ally spe­cial cars, bikes and maybe a few well-known faces at­tend fu­ture meets – you’ll just have to come along to find out!’

He also con­firmed that the na­ture of the event would re­main the same, even if the meet­ings had to ex­pand to cater for ev­ery­one who wants to at­tend. ‘ We’re look­ing at ad­di­tional park­ing for next time, but the rule that the event will be free to any­one ar­riv­ing in a clas­sic or sports car or bike will re­main. We just love the en­thu­si­asm shown by ev­ery­one, what­ever they ar­rive in, and love to see peo­ple shar­ing their sto­ries.’ cof­fee & clas­sics is held on the first sun­day of ev­ery month un­til Oc­to­ber at the clas­sic Mo­tor hub in Glouces­ter­shire, Gl7 5NX
