Changes to the 2023 show
This year we intend to simplify the show, inviting younger vehicles to ensure we have as wide an age group of vehicles as possible.
After 25 years we felt that a wash & brush up would be a good thing. As you can see from our banner above we have re-named the event. As before modern classics as well as truly historic vehicles are all part of the show, but we think the new name will appeal to a younger audience – essential if the event is to prosper in the future
As usual cars and motorcycles will have their own display areas. This year all cars will be parked-up in order of arrival rather than by class. This simplifies the field layout and reduces the number of marshals needed. If you want to park next to your friends – all drive in together and you will be parked together irrespective of Class.
There are four classes:
- Cars and light commercials up to 1959
- Cars and light commercials 1960-1979
- Cars and light commercials 1980 on
The organisers maintain a database of entrant’s personal contact details in order to administer the event. Our Data Protection Policy can be downloaded here.
When you complete your entry for “Classics over sands” and pay the fee, you will receive an email with a receipt number. It is important that you keep this email and number as it is your entry to the show. When you arrive at the event you will be required to show the event Marshalls this email. Once parked, you should go to the Pavilion and register your car for the show, we will then give you an entry number to display on your vehicle.
Please do not leave the Show Early
We understand that there are many reasons why an entrant may wish to leave early. However, please be aware that the event is advertised as finishing at 4.30pm. Visitors will be disappointed if exhibits leave before then. We hope that all of our entrants will enjoy their day at the Show and honour our obligation to our visitors by remaining on the show-field.
Our visitors, including young children and the elderly, are not expecting vehicles to be moving about. The organisers take responsibility for the safety of our visitors at all times, and the support of all entrants is vital in this matter. Before moving your vehicle for whatever reason prior to 4.30pm you must seek the assistance of a marshal.
Can I park with my friend?
Space is limited and the marshals are responsible for ensuring there is sufficient space for everyone. Please do not ask them to reserve a space next to you for your friend who has not arrived yet. If you want to park together and are in the same class, please meet up off site and arrive together.
Visitors in Classics
Classic Vehicles arriving without receipt number and email are welcome but will be charged the normal fee applicable to members of the public arriving as spectators. Do make yourselves known at the Pavilion and we will then be able to ad you to our mailing list.
