Record club en­try for Manch­ester

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - ❚ manch­ester­clas­s­ic­

This year’s Footman James Clas­sic Car Show in Manch­ester has at­tracted so many clubs that or­gan­is­ers have had to put a wait­ing list in place.

95 clubs are squeez­ing into the Show, which takes place on 16-17 Septem­ber at Even­tCity in Manch­ester. The Show’s in­au­gu­ral year (2013) had just 50.

Show or­gan­iser, Andy Rouse, says: ‘We’ve grown nearly 100 per cent in terms of club con­tent since the in­au­gu­ral show in 2013. And this year, we’ve al­ready had a re­ally en­cour­ag­ing re­sponse from all quar­ters. We’re par­tic­u­larly thrilled that so many clubs have ap­plied to be a part of it.

‘Clubs are the heart­beat of this whole hobby, and we are hon­oured that so many are choos­ing to join us at this great show­case for the clas­sic car com­mu­nity. The show is fast gain­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for great cars, in a great venue and a very friendly at­mos­phere.’

Live clas­sic rally driv­ing ac­tion will see rally-prepped Peu­geots, Re­naults, and Vaux­halls tear­ing round a short and tech­ni­cal sec­tion. In­doors, the show is set to fea­ture hun­dreds of cars, along with a a show and shine con­test, restora­tion demon­stra­tions, and traders’ stalls.
