Title: The Warren Classic and Supercar Show 2017
Post by: Big Al on March 29, 2017, 04:13:36 PM
Crumbago, I thought!  Wirral happen next? 

But then on reading further, its about big cars, not our Richard's unusual puddlejumpers. Not only that, its in Essex.

As you were!

Back for 2017, after another successful show in 2016, The Warren Classic and Supercar Show will take place on Sunday 24th September 2017. We will also be running the Warren Classic Tour again on the Saturday the 23rd September. This was a great success last year but is limited to 50 cars so if you are interested in joining the tour please contact me in order to secure your place. Further details for the tour will be announced soon!

The Warren Classic and Concours firmly established itself in 2013 as one of the key events on Essex’s summer social calendar and was the opening event of the annual round of classic car concours. The event attracted thousands of visitors to a celebration of classic and supercars at The Warren Golf & Country Club near Maldon.

In 2014, The Warren Classic and Concours offered visitors the opportunity to see some of the finest classic and contemporary supercars in the world, all gathered together at Essex’s most prestigious classic and supercar event. The highlight of the show was The Warren Concours d’Elegance where the finest classic cars were judged by an expert panel.

This year, the overall Best of Show winner will be invited to display their car at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall for the following week…this is a very exclusive invitation and a great honour.

In addition to the Concours are the drive in classic cars brought to the event by local enthusiasts and alongside the classic cars are the supercars which included the most powerful car in the world, the Bugatti Veyron.

We have chosen a few different classes for this year and I've listed these below:

 
American Sports

The Great British Marques

Ferrari Racing

Ferrari Grand Touring

Alfa Romeo

Jaguar

Pre-war Touring

Coachbuilders Art

Prototypes and Unique Motorcars

Veterans

Supercars

Motorcycles


As in previous years, we will be giving precedence to cars that have not been to the Concours before. If you would like more information please take a look at the web site: www.warrenclassic.co.uk or of course email or call me.

As always, if you know anyone with an interesting car who has not been to the Warren Classic before or see any great cars (or indeed motorcycles for this year) that would be a good fit for the Warren Concours, please let the owner know and feel free to pass on my contact details.

One more thing…if you or your company would be interested in becoming a sponsor for this year, we are offering several different hospitality packages and marketing opportunities. Please email me for further details.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards

So how many Microcars will be amongst the 'lucky' 120+ cars that are accepted without charge ???.  If not then you will be paying the £10 'drive in classic car' entry fee.

I did it two years ago and got in with the Isetta as part of the concourse so it cost nothing to do. Its basically a load of hurrah Henry's showing off there wealth. The organiser showed his colours from the start by taking the micky out of the Isetta on the way in.  In a way I'm glad I did it because it clearly irritated them. ;D

Hurrah, its what Microcars do well!  Of course the humble bubble rather eclipses all the daylight snobbery these guys desire, and for a whole lot less money, in a lot of cases. I wonder why the organiser is named after a collector from a system of taxation? Is this telling us something we need to know?
