It’s May at last and many of us will have finally got our Classic’s on the road again. Drive-it day is behind us and better weather is ahead. In just three short months it will be show time in Grange over Sands, and four long years since our last brilliant get together. Our revamped event will have the same great features – a magnificent site, music, catering & stalls, but most of all you and your cars. In fact we already have a staggering array of vehicles, from 1920’s to modern classics.
If you haven’t already booked for Classics over Sands, now is the time to do it. Entries have reached two thirds of capacity, so there is plenty of room, but please don’t leave it too late!
Once again the High Society Jazz band will be attending Classics over sands on Sunday 7th August, which is probably their longest running “fixture”! However, like our own Classic cars, they can also get rusty, but I’m told their performance will be rust free and highly polished. So make a date in your diary to attend OR enter your Classic vehicle, before we run out of space.
We’ve had an amazing response already, particularly for cars, but only a handful of motorbikes registered. In fact our chosen charity for 2022 is BLOOD BIKES, so we expected a few more motorcycle owners would have come forward and entered.
We really want a great display of Motorbikes, so get your entry in!
With OVER 150 cars already entered, here is a flavour of some incredible vehicles you can look forward to seeing.
Amongst the oldest entries in Classics over sandson Sunday August 7th are a couple of similar cars to those owned my my Grandfather pre-war. The first, a 1929 Morgan Super Sports Aero, still used extensivly and a superb example of the marque. Also, but very different, a 1931 Austin 7, known as Jane, one of the cars that saved the Austin Motor Company.
At the other end of the age spectrum, we’ve a 1989 Range Rover, once owned by Queen drummer, Roger Taylor. With an open top and powered hood, this really is a “one off”. Another “famous name” car is a Lamborghini Espada from 1994, owned by none other than Bono of U2 fame.
If you haven’t got around to entering yet, do it now, so you don’t forget!
Since entries opened on 10th February, we’ve had a veritable feast of entries, from a 1930’s Rolls Royce to a 1990’s Sierra Cosworth with everything in-between. Over the coming weeks we will be highlighting some of the interesting and unusual, as well as two wheel entries!
Big thanks to the many entrants who added a donation alongside their entry fee, which will be passed directly to our chosen Charity “BLOOD BIKES”
