Announcing our Twenty Fourth Classic Car Show

to be held at Ripon Race Course

on the
29th July 2018

Nearly   £ 250,000 raised for Charities to date!!

In late July every year we organise a Classic Car show which also includes, motorcycles, car clubs, tractors and specialist car stands. Last year we had nearly 1000 exhibitors on the field of all types and styles. We have a number of other attractions and activities taking place on the day; children's entertainment, live music, stalls and trade stands of all descriptions, auto jumble, games and quizzes, good food cooked by the local guides and much more. Each year the event builds and is more popular. Thousands of local people come and take part; we also get visitors from all over the country, some bringing their cherished classic vehicles to show. Local accommodation is inexpensive and there are local camping facilities for those that need it.


We are a non profit organisation with all monies raised going to charities nominated each year by the Committee.

So if you are keen to see one of the most popular events in the area and fancy a good day out, - then come and see us.
