Calling all Classics for Tony Jennings Classic Car Show

Calling all Classics for Tony Jennings Classic Car Show

Taking place at BEN’s Town Thorns Care Centre, the Tony Jennings Classic Car Show to be held on 3rd August was originally created in memory of the former Chairman of the Fellowship of the Motor Industry (FMI) who sadly passed away last year. His career spanned many decades in the motor industry and prior to retirement he was a Senior Director with the Rover Group, when the company was owned by BMW. Tony was held in high regard within the industry and, particularly, by BEN on whose behalf he was a tireless fund raiser.

The show, which coincides with the BEN Town Thorns Fete, not only ensuring your pride and joy will be appreciated by a large audience but offering plenty of other attractions plus hot food, cream teas, cake and refreshments.

Organiser of the FMI classic car show, Peter Cottle, would like to see as many classic car entrants as possible, not just local residents but from around the country. As he puts it: “By definition a ‘classic’ car could be from any era so if you own an E-Type Jaguar, Triumph Stag, Austin Healey, Ferrari 250GT, Morris Traveller or even a Ford Granada you are all welcome; the emphasis being very much on fun and fellowship. So no matter what era, we would love to see you there on 3rd August.”

All proceeds from car entrants and visitors to the fete will go directly to Town Thorns residents’ support. The care centre is based in Easenhall near Rugby and the times for the show and fete are 11.30am – 4.00pm. Entry to the Show and Fete is just £2 per car (classic cars free) and allows all occupants’ entry to the Fete.
