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.

Historic Rally Car Register Annual Open Day

British Motor Museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire, CV35 0BJ (M40 Junc 12)
9:30am – 3.30pm
This year’s Open Day theme is the 1960 RAC rally. That event saw the first real loose surface special stage in the rally’s history, and represented a new direction for the sport. 60 years on, historic rallying is now a multidisciplinary sport, covering road, special stages, and speed events. The Historic Rally Car Register is about celebrating this diversity, and our Open Day is a chance to share our passion with others. For this year we have negotiated a larger space for outside display cars. So if you have an historic competition car and can bring it along, we’d love to see you. As ever the display parking will be on a first come first served basis, and ably organised by Sue and her team. There is also a large car park for all visitors a short walk from the venue. Directions will be provided from the main road entrance. See you there!

Drive Your Triumph Day

Nationwide
Anytime
Are you ready for Drive Your Triumph Day, Monday, February 10th, to celebrate Sir John Black's birthday, the man who organized Standard's purchase of Triumph after the war and went on to make the cars we enjoy driving today? It's just one month away. This celebratory drive has been building momentum every year. Last year I received close to 350 photos from all over the world. This year is going to be a bit more of a challenge as February 10th falls on Monday. As tempting as it may be to plan a drive for the weekend, we’re going to keep true to the day, and please submit photos only taken on Monday, February 10th, 2020. The concept is straightforward. On February 10th, go for a drive in your Triumph. Take a scenic drive on a country road or out to lunch, to the market, to work, where ever. Go for a drive alone or in a big group with your local Triumph Club. Take your spouse, buddy, child, grandchild or your dog; then take a photo. The photo is mainly of the car, and the owner if possible, ideally in front a cool spot, landmark, scenic view, in front of the hardware store or in your driveway. If it’s the middle of the winter where you live and your car is in hibernation, or in the middle of a restoration, take a photo of it anyway in the garage. Some winter photos I’ve received have the garage door open with the car tucked under a cover, and snow outside. Have fun with it, and participate. Next step is to email a high-resolution photo to driveyourtriumphday@gmail.com, along with some basic information: owner’s name, year and model of car, and place photo was taken (city, state, country).

The Ellis Journey

From Micheldever to Dachet
A CELEBRATION OF THE FIRST RECORDED MOTORISED CARRIAGE JOURNEY IN THE UK The Ellis Journey is a re-enactment of the journey made in 1895 by the Hon Evelyn Ellis and his passenger Fredrick Simms, they started near Winchester and finished at Ellis’s home in Datchet close to Windsor Castle. The re-enactment follows as near as possible the original route and is an annual event open to Cars, Motor Cycles, Commercial Vehicles and Bicycles manufactured before 1905. ? The Ellis Journey is a fantastic opportunity for drivers and spectators some dressed in period costume to drive their veteran vehicles on a summers day through the English countryside. The spectators with cameras at the ready can witness a moving museum of pre 1905 vehicles, with the noises of very primitive engines as they pass through some of the most outstanding English villages and country side. In the final stages of the route the veteran vehicles will be driving alongside the famous River Thames and passing the site of The Hon Evelyn Ellis’s 1895 home “Rosenau”, finishing with a party atmosphere with Jazz on Datchet Village Green.

Drive it Day - Windsor, Berkshire

Castle View, Helston Lane, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 5GG
10am – 3.30pm
DO YOU OWN A CLASSIC VEHICLE? DRIVE IT TO CASTLE VIEW WINDSOR ON ‘DRIVE IT DAY’ AND SUPPORT THE NSPCC • Sunday 24 April – coffee and cakes available from 10am – 3.30pm • Open to those participating in the national Drive It Day event run by the Federation of British Historical Vehicle Clubs • Coffee stop at Castle View, Helston Lane, Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 5GG • To join in, drivers can purchase a ‘Drive It Day’ car plaque from just £10 at https://www.driveitday.co.uk/shop For those with a treasured classic car, National Drive It Day is one of the first opportunities after the long winter to get it out for a run, and Castle View is providing a ‘coffee stop’ for participants to build into their itinerary. Just a mile from the centre of Windsor, and easily accessed from the M4, Windsor Great Park, Legoland and Ascot, Castle View will be open to participants of the event, and those keen to look at some classic cars. “As great classic car enthusiasts ourselves, we thought it would be fun to host a coffee stop for anyone in the West London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Surrey areas to get their old vehicles out. There’s no knowing what sort of vehicles will be here on the day, but we are hoping to have a London Routemaster bus, a Masey Ferguson tractor and an assortment of classic sports and saloon cars,” says Robin Hughes, CEO of Castle View. National Drive It Day was created by the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) in 2005. It is the occasion when historic vehicle enthusiasts and the public at large have the opportunity to celebrate the One Thousand Mile Trial organised in 1900 to prove the viability of the new invention, the motor vehicle. It’s also a chance to raise awareness and support amongst the public for the historic vehicle movement and keeping transport heritage on UK roads, while also raising funds for the NSPCC’s Childline.

National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, B92 0EJ
8.30am to 5.30pm
This year’s new “Ride it Day” is taking place on Sunday 24/04/22, and The National Motorcycle Museum is supporting the event as offering ourselves as a “destination point”. All you have to do is purchase a “Ride It Plate” from www.driveitday.co.uk/shop and ride to the museum on the 24th of April to meet up with fellow participants. Not only this, but by taking part you will be supporting Childline, who are the event’s chosen charity. Supporter Carl Fogarty stated “‘Last year people from the motorbike community came together and helped raise over £40,000 for the NSPCC’s Childline Service by taking part in the annual Drive It Day. For the first time ever, we now have our very own Ride It Day. This April, you can buy a Ride It Day Rally Plate for just £10.00 and ride out with friends, or join an organised event, and once again help support vulnerable children and young people across the UK. Visit the FBHVC website for more details on Drive It Day or head to www.driveitday.co.uk/shop today to order your rally plate and to sign up to take part this April. Let’s get these children the support they need and raise as much money as we can for Childline!”

Summer Classics - Platinum Jubilee Special

Three Counties Showground
It is with great pleasure I can announce this year we will be launching a brand-new event with the overarching aim to gather as many classic cars, bikes and vehicles as well as like-minded people together in one place. 2022 will be Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and this seemed like the ideal opportunity to bring everyone together to celebrate our cars, our bikes and vintage and classic vehicles as well as having a fun filled gathering of music, food and entertainment – with a difference. We present – SUMMER CLASSICS the PLATINUM JUBILEE SPECIAL – Bank Holiday Weekend, Saturday June 4th – the only date for the diary in 2022! Summer Classics will be more than just a classic car gathering, it will feature classic cars, motorbikes, WW2 vehicles and a static Spitfire and Hurricane as well as lots more – but that’s just the start of it. We will feature a dedicated VIP Paddock area and a live ‘Parade Road’ where the public can see and hear up close some very special cars and bikes moving around the event ground. Once the final lap of the Parade Road has been completed we will transform it into ‘Jubilee Street’ for the UK’s longest ‘Jubilee Street Party’ a 300m long celebration. We really want people to feel ‘part of the event’ and to have that ‘Jubilee Celebration Street Party’ feel – Dressing up is optional of course! Alongside all of this we will have dedicated club areas, a live auto test to see and be close to the action, live music by local bands and a mixture of food options and various picnic areas – and weather dependant we will have a unique fly past by the Lancaster Bomber of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (timing to be advised on the day). OUR CHARITY PARTNER We are proud to announce our charity partner BBC Children in Need with a Pudsey Bear joining us on the day and alongside this our association with Sporting Bears and their ‘Dream Rides’.

Uckfield Revival – an event usually organised by Uckfield Town Council in October – is to be amalgamated with the Uckfield Festival Classic Car event. The event this year will be called the Classic Revival Vehicle Show and is scheduled to take place on Sunday 10 July on Luxford Field in Uckfield. There will be a maximum of 120 vehicles allowed on the field this year which is a slight increase on last year’s Covid’s restriction. Due to outstanding demand in the past, it will be first come, first served for space on the field, but the car parks adjacent will be FREE to park all day. This year due to the high cost of putting events on i.e., insurance etc there will be a voluntary minimum donation of £5.00 (or more if you wish!). This will be collected on the day.

Classic Vehicle Group Drive it Day Run In Hampshire Sunday 23d April 2023 The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs’ Drive it Day events take place nationwide, providing the opportunity to dust off those cobwebs, and give our classics an early-season test run. The events will again be run in support of the NSPCC’s Childline service. Starting at The Angel, at Privett on the A32 south of Alton, there will be a selection of breakfast options, and after a short briefing, cars will head through small towns and villages with interesting buildings and historical association, and beautiful countryside on the Hants/Surrey borders, before arriving at Bill Rawles Classic Cars for our first visit.

We will then turn southwards on country roads through the Meon Valley to Bishop’s Waltham, with its ruined medieval Bishop’s Palace, riverside, and open spaces, restaurants and coffee shops, before passing through rural landscapes towards the Hamble and glimpsing the Solent and Southampton Water as we reach the south coast, before crossing the Itchen Bridge and reaching our final destination of Solent Sky. This is an exceptional museum close to Southampton City centre, and it highlights the impressive role that the area has played in the development of aviation, including Shorts Flying Boats flown and developed from Calshot nearby, as well as an excellent example of the iconic Spitfire also developed locally, and some 30 other impressive planes and displays. Car parking is available outside the museum. Entry fee will be £49 per car and two occupants (£54 non members), to include: Tulip Roadbook, Childline Drive it Day Rally Plate, Tea, Coffee, Juice & Biscuits at the Start and at Bill Rawles, and entry to the museum.

As always, all vehicles with an Eastern Bloc pedigree (and their keepers) are invited to join us for all or part of the weekend. SATURDAY: We start near Cardiff at St Fagans National Museum of History. Over forty original Welsh buildings from different historical periods have been re-erected in the 100-acre parkland. We then convoy up to our base at the historic town of Merthyr Tydfil. SUNDAY: A return trip on the Brecon Mountain Railway takes us into the National Park and along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservoir before climbing to Torpantau high in the Brecon Beacons. Back in our vehicles, we convoy on a scenic loop taking in some of the best touring routes around the Brecon Beacons including a stop at Llandovery Castle. MONDAY: Starting at Blaenavon Ironworks, this UNESCO World heritage monument was a cradle of the Industrial Revolution. We then convoy a short distance for a group descent underground at the Big Pit National Coal Museum. Interested?

Wartburg Trabant IFA Club UK

Big skies, well ventilated – and not dead!

Peterborough and The Fens + Festival of the Dead (Stamford)
See website for details
Join the Wartburg Trabant IFA Club as we take in the brand new classic car show ‘Festival of the Dead’, being staged at the magnificent Burghley House, near Stamford, north of Peterborough. For those who would like to make a weekend of it, we’ve put together a special event, which you can join for one, two or all three days! The show – on Sunday 2 July 2023 – is a “celebration of car marques no longer with us” – which pretty much includes all Cold War/Eastern Bloc classics, with the exception of, perhaps Skoda… ALL ARE WELCOME – INCLUDING NON-CLUB MEMBERS! SUMMARY: Friday 30 June: Meet from noon in Peterborough for sightseeing, evening pub meal at riverside beer garden Saturday 1 July: Road run to the Fens, visit to Nene Valley Railway, evening meal at Lithuanian restaurant Sunday 2 July: Convoy drive to Burghley House, for display on club stand. Optional visit to house and gardens. Interested? Please contact Mel Holley, memb@ifaclub.co.uk or 07930 391461. Full itinerary and timings will be supplied to participants You must pre-book your own ticket for the Sunday car show (no pay-on-the-day) here: https://festivalofthedead.uk/ Accommodation: There’s the usual choices, but the most convenient is the newly-opened Premier Inn in the centre of town (in the former Police Station), very close the ‘old’ centre and Charters Bar, our Friday venue. It is called ‘Premier Inn Peterborough City Centre’ (not to be confused with ‘Premier Inn Peterborough Hampton’). An alternative would be ‘Premier Inn Peterborough Ferry Meadows’. Also ‘in town’ and convenient for our activities is the ‘Park Inn Peterborough’ (round the back of the museum, see over) FULL DETAILS FRIDAY: Early arrivals can meet at the Coalheavers Arms, Park Street, Peterborough from noon (we can make arrangements for very early arrivals, subject to demand!). Dating from the 1850s, this CAMRA pub’s six handpumps serve Tydd Steam and beers from local micros. Notably, it was the only pub within the city to be hit by a bomb during World War II. The pub almost faced completely destruction and carried on through it in a tale of absolute resilience! On the night of November 16, 1940, the unassuming pub gained the unfortunate distinction of being the only pub in Peterborough to be bombed by the German Luftwaffe. The bomb landed in the cellar but - to the absolute luck of the pub owners - it didn't explode! As the bomb was examined and deemed safe by the locals, in the spirit of the times the owners decided to open the same night and see business as usual. Pubgoers filed in for their beer inside a building that, only moments before might not have existed. In the afternoon, we will take in the delights of the heart of ‘old Peterborough’, once a bustling market town before the coming of the railways in the 1850s, and the birthplace of Sir Henry Royce. There’s the spectacular cathedral (1118-1237), and remains of the cloisters – where Mary, Queen of Scots was briefly interred here having been executed at nearby Fotheringhay Castle and her grave dedicated to ‘Katharine Queen of England’ is in the body of the building for visitors to see. The market square, today pedestrianised, still has its Guildhall (1669-1671) and other period buildings, while around the corner is the city’s museum (on Priestgate – the ancient city still has its main streets named after the ‘gates’ even though the structures no longer stand). The Museum (free entry), includes fascinating collections. The Norman Cross collection is considered to be the largest and finest collection of objects carved by French and Dutch prisoners of war. Interred at a Prisoner of War Camp at Norman Cross, near Peterborough, during the Napoleonic Wars (1797-1815) they include bone, wood and ivory, including model ships, guillotines, needlework boxes, playing cards and articles of straw marquetry. With Peterborough being just off Ermine Street, and a heritage going back to the stone age, there are also displays covering the period up to the Romans. EVENING: We visit the ‘Charters’ floating pub. Built in a former Dutch grain barge, and moored by the Town Bridge, it has a massive selection of real ales, and offers a quality food menu, which can be enjoyed inside (on the top deck) or ‘below stairs’ in the bar. There is also a large beer garden SATURDAY: We meet ‘in town’ for a road run through the fascinating fen country, with a rich history and mix of industry and water management. Our drive takes in back roads to Whittlesey (home of Britain’s last ‘traditional’ brickworks, and the washes – deliberately flooded and used for winter ice skating’ at the point where the river Nene becomes no longer tidal. From here, we follow the route of one of the major Second World War ‘stop lines’ – a series of close-formation pillboxes and defensive structures designed to repel an enemy invasion from the east coast. The best-preserved of these types of features, see how many you can spot! Next we travel across the ‘flatlands’ to enjoy the skyscapes, before climbing to the Isle of Thorney, with its historic Abbey, classic car garage and ‘model village’. A short comfort stop will be made, and those who wish can take ‘Tea at 18’ a small coffee shop. Striking northwards across Morris Fen, we pass through Crowland – a photo stop for its Roman-origin unique triangular stone-built bridge, will be made, while those of a certain disposition can visit the traditional hardware store or family butchers in this small town. Next on the agenda is a trip alongside the 40-Foot River – a massive channel that is elevated above the surrounding countryside. We stop at the point where the river was breached in 1947, flooding the surrounding area. Onto through Market Deeping, another quaint town, we then circle down to arrive at the World Famous Stibbington Diner for lunch. The last traditional transport café on the former Great North Road (now bypassed by the modern – well 1950s – A1) it serves good food and is a regular classic car meet spot. Suitably refreshed, we take the very short drive to pass over an original level crossing (with gates and signalbox) to arrive at Wansford station on the Nene Valley Railway. Until 1959, this was the A1 and the gates closed to road traffic causing lengthy delays. We will have a reserved parking area and you can take a train ride, look around the engine sheds, enjoy the miniature railway, or plunder the bookstalls. In the evening we meet at Kaimas Lithuanian Restaurant for a meal, (five star reviews) and those who wish, may want to continue their enjoyment at the Brewery Tap, a lively brew-pub in the heart of town. SUNDAY: We meet in Peterborough for a drive along specially-selected quiet roads (to avoid the A1) arriving in convoy at The Festival of the Dead. We have our own reserved stand for the club, and you’ll need to buy your entry ticket in advance (£13.55 per car - there’s no pay at the gate), but this does get you half-priced entry to Burghley House and Gardens (featured in The Crown TV series). This is the first time the Festival of the Dead has been staged. Sponsored by Classicline Insurance, proceeds go to the Mission Motorsport charity.
