Cumbria Classic Weekend 2019

The thirty-first running of the Cumbria Classic Weekend promise to be the biggest one yet! The Wigton Motor Club organised event goes from strength to strength with increased entries every year. Last year we broke the 800-car mark at the Show! The Weekend continues its successful format with the Rose & Thistle Challenge run on the Saturday which this year takes in many of the less known parts of north Cumbria and the Borders. Entries on this event are limited to just 90 cars so it is expected to fill up very quickly. Sunday sees the Cumbria Classic & Motorsport Show at the picturesque Dalemain mansion near Ullswater and only five minutes from Junction 40 of the M6. As well as over 800 classic cars there will be arena action, special marque displays, dozens of club displays, plus the famous autotests, trade stands, food and beer and autojumble stalls as well as the delights of Dalemain and its award-winning gardens. Discounted admission to the Mansion and Gardens is available to all exhibitors. This year the features will be 60 years of Mini, 50 of the Ford Capri, 100 years of Citroen and Bentley plus 30 years of the Mazda MX5. . We also make a big effort going to encourage younger owners to display their pride and joy with a special class for owners under 30. Once again there is a class for kit cars which grows every year.

If you would like to join us, please come along between 9.30am and 11.00am, although the organisers have told us it would be helpful if you could be on the stand by 10.00am, or although this isn't essential. There is no need to book, you can turn up on the day but in order to manage numbers, it would be helpful for us to know in advance if you can make it.

Footman James Coffee & Chrome Event

Chateau Impney, Droitwich
Attendance more than doubled between the first and second meets, so capacity will once again be capped to 500 vehicles. The Footman James team opens the gates from 9am to a huge variety of interesting machinery, including vintage, classics, supercars, bikes and military, ensuring that there is something to interest everyone – including a free bacon sandwich on entry (a maximum of two per car). “We can’t wait to once again fill the iconic Chateau Impney venue with an extraordinarily diverse range of vehicles,” said David Bond, Footman James Managing Director. “We were staggered by the turn-out for our previous meetings, with visitors enjoying the all-marques policy where million-pound Aston Martins rub shoulders with early-80s hot hatch heroes. We are proud that Coffee & Chrome is rapidly becoming a ‘must attend’ date in enthusiasts’ diaries.” There is no segmentation at the meeting, which encourages a fascinating mix of vehicles, complemented by a small selection of traders and club displays. Due to previous high demand, Footman James encourages those interested in attending the meeting to secure their place via its website www.footmanjames.co.uk/blog/coffee-chrome-september-2019. Places are strictly offered on a first-come, first-served basis. For further information about Footman James, please contact 0333 207 6255 or visit footmanjames.co.uk.
