“Big cheque” for Blood bikes

After our successful event on 7th August, we are delighted to present our chosen charity with a cheque for £3,627.59, which included bucket collections “on the day”. Geoff Critchley, our Chairman made the award to representatives of Blood bikes, together with one of the cars displayed at the event. A huge thank you to all the entrants who brought their cars, visitors and helpers who made our event truly special.

Remember, next year we have a slight date change to Sunday 13th August 2023.

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!

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.

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.
