Whether you own a pre-war clas­sic or just want to see them be­ing en­joyed in ac­tion, you won’t want to miss these great events

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Great Pre-war Car Events -

It’s all too easy to treat pre-war cars as del­i­cate mu­seum pieces that should be pre­served above all else – but the happy fact is that there are scores of events across the UK where these won­der­ful ma­chines show off what they’re truly ca­pa­ble of – and they do it with pace and en­thu­si­asm!

There’s noth­ing quite like an his­toric rac­ing event or one of the Vin­tage Sports Car Club’s trial events for demon­strat­ing just how tough and able pre-war cars are – and it’s easy to pick up an Austin Seven, Ford Model B or Bull­nose Morris and get stuck in if you’re feel­ing ad­ven­tur­ous. There are also plenty of static shows where you can en­joy these clas­sics in a more re­laxed at­mos­phere, par­tic­u­larly at the New Year clas­sic gath­er­ings at Stony Strat­ford, Brook­lands and Much Marcle.

We’ve picked out just a few of our favourite events which are ei­ther fo­cused ex­clu­sively on pre-war clas­sics or where they fea­ture promi­nently through­out. It’s also worth re­mem­ber­ing that vir­tu­ally ev­ery clas­sic ve­hi­cle show or event – not just in the UK, but all over the world – will wel­come these cars with open arms.
