Classic Cars Reunite for Nostalgic Spring Classic

Classic Cars Reunite for Nostalgic Spring ClassicHundreds of vintage, veteran and classic cars will reunite for the nostalgic Gaydon Spring Classic at the Heritage Motor Centre on Sunday 18 May. This annual event is a popular gathering of all vehicles aged over 20 years old. Entry into the grounds is free and those arriving in a qualifying vehicle can visit the Museum on the day for just £5 per person. The Centrepiece Rally will be organised by the Young Members Register of the Morris Minor Owners Club.

The Gaydon Fringe will highlight Classics of the future, open to individuals and clubs. There will also be a FAB1 reunion for Breast Cancer Care. The bespoke Rolls-Royce will be in good company, joined by the Fab1 model used in the 2004 Thunderbirds film, already in residence at the museum. Breast Cancer Care volunteers will be there alongside these iconic cars to raise vital funds.

FAB1 Manager, Oliver Cottam says:” We are delighted that FAB1 Million will be at the event and it is great that the Gaydon Spring Classic is supporting Breast Cancer Care. We look forward to meeting all the spectators and raising money to help support all those who wake up to the harsh reality of breast cancer every day”.

In addition classic car drivers and passengers can join in with the Spring Cream Tea Run for a scenic drive, taking in the historic Edgehill and some stunning South Warwickshire countryside. The drive culminates in a delicious cream tea at the HMC ‘Junction 12′ Café.

The cost is £22 per car (driver & passenger) which includes the Rally Plaque for the car, entry to the Museum and a cream tea for two people. Additional passengers cost £11 per person. Vehicles can arrive from 9am onwards with the Run starting at 10:30am. The Cream Tea will be served from 3pm - 4:30pm.
