2022 Show results

A big thank you to all our visitors and entrants to Classics over sands on Sunday 7th August. We were blessed with wonderful weather and a huge crowd of visitors, with a spectacular array of vehicles. This was the first time we have asked visitors to vote for the cars, which certainly went down well, given the huge number of results we had to count!

Full field expected, with entries closing shortly

With a close to full entry list, we will be closing our entry system very soon. We anticipate that the online system will close end of day Thursday 28th July to allow us to organise the administration and ensure that all printing and paperwork is in place.

The show starts at 10am, when the cars start to arrive, by noon we expect to have over 300 vehicles displayed across the field.

Visitors to the show Pay £5 per person on the gate (accompanied children under 16 free) and each family group receives a 40 page colour brochure entirely free. This year we will be expecting entrants and spectators to join in with judging the Vehicles.

1947 350cc Manx Norton

Another fantastic entry in Classics over Sands is this 1947 350cc Manx Norton is in unrestored condition, it was raced in the 1947 Junior Manx Grand Prix by rider Anno Domini and finished in 17th place at an average speed of 70.07 mph covering 6 laps which was 226.38 miles.

In 1949 Anno Domini and John Aldington drove all the way from Yorkshire to enter in the Le Mans 24 hour race, Anno Domini and John Aldington drove a Frazer Nash racing car and came 3rd overall and 2nd in class.

We understand Anno Domino was a pseudonym as his parents didn’t know he was racing!

See stars at Classics over Sands 7th August in Grange

Originally owned by BONO of U2 fame, this fantastic Lamborghini Espada clearly predates Bono’s current green credentials. With a thirsty V12 fed by no less that 6 Weber Carburettors, this is one expensive beast to run, at circa ten mpg (yes 10)! In its day the Espada was the fastest 4 seater car on the planet (156mph) and retailed at twice the price of a Rolls Royce.

So make a date in your diary to see this fantastic car, along with nearly 300 other amazing classics.

One of last Mini’s made entered into show

One of the last Mini Sport 500’s has been entered into the show. This is literally one of the last Mini’s made, after a production run of over 5 million built. The cars were built in 4 specific colours, this one painted in British racing green metallic. With an interesting silver leather interior and silver dashboard, this is one to see at the show on 7th August!

MORGAN SUPER SPORT 1929

This gorgeous 1929 Morgan three wheeler, has been owned by its current keeper since October last year and is another of the interesting vehicles entered for Classics over sands on Sunday 7th August.

Morgan introduced the “Super Sports Aero” model as the top of their range, at the October motorcycle show in 1927, fitted with a water cooled overhead valve 1100cc JAP v twin engine, and, as all vintage Morgans, fitted with a 2 speed chain transmission, using sprockets and dogs, rather like the Frazer Nash. The model was advertised as capable of 80 mph. It was with this model, fitted with a racing JAP engine, that Gwenda Stewart attained 115mph at Montlhery in 1930. This Morgan has been fitted with an engine similar to Gwenda Stewarts’ and thus (in theory) capable of much more than 80 mph!! although the owner has not been brave enough to drive it at that speed yet, although, I’m told, it does accelerate up to the legal limit very easily.
