Car Display
No matter what sort of cars you like, you will be bedazzled at the array of cars here! Whether you are an Aston Martin, Jaguar, Jensen or McLaren admirer, or if you simply want to relive the good old days of the awesome little Morris Mini, Land Rover or Hillman Imp, you will be able to spend hours wandering amongst the state's largest gathering of British classic cars, motorcycles and other motoring classics.

The British motor car has played an important role in the history of motoring and motorsport, ranging from the well known and likeable vehicles such as the Baby Austin through to renowned luxury cars such as Rolls Royce, Bentley and Daimler.

The preservation of these cars is a labour of love and you can see them and speak to those who have lovingly restored/kept them at this event.
