Tom Caren, Show Manager for the Heritage Motor Centre stated “It’s great to hold both of these Light Commercial Vehicle shows on the same weekend as they are a great fit together. All vans are welcome, whether it’s a classic or a custom van. Visiting both events is a great way to meet likeminded people and if you’re looking for technical help, then the club members will be on hand to help”.
