Unlike many traditional classic car show Retro Cars Live will allow visitors to try out their classics on the Rockingham circuit, alongside other interactive, live features.

Retro Cars’ John-Joe Vollans said: “Our aim is to bring together people who love old cars of all shapes, types and sizes in a festival-style environment. Retro Cars Live is something completely different to any other car show in the country – it’s entirely inclusive of all makes and models and anything goes, standard or modified. We’re there to have fun with cars, and that’s exactly the experience we want for our guests.”
