The go­ing’s fair at As­cot

Move to sport­ing venue pulls in the pun­ters – and some great runners

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

His­torics’ one-off move to As­cot Race­course might have taken real ef­fort to stage, but come sale morn­ing there were plenty of pun­ters through the pres­tige sport­ing venue’s gates.

The sight of many cat­a­logue car­ri­ers giv­ing the ex­ten­sive of­fer­ing plenty of ex­am­i­na­tion vin­di­cated the As­cot de­camp. Help­ing the cause was an imag­i­na­tive dis­play, with cars both inside and out­side – in some cases sim­i­lar makes were put to­gether (Rolls-Royces and Bent­leys) and in other cases a theme was adopted, which saw camper vans side-by-side.

There was a def­i­nite buzz about the whole event, and with more than 600 peo­ple through the gates on the sale’s two pre­view days the pos­i­tive, up­beat air was some­thing sel­dom seen, even in to­day’s buoy­ant mar­ket.

This was per­haps THE most in­ter­est­ing sale of the year so far, and for all the right rea­sons.

His­torics’ next sale is on 8 July at its tra­di­tional Brook­lands venue. ❚ 01753 639170 ❚ his­
