Classic Motoring & Motorsport

There was a chance to enjoy a range of vintage and classic motoring on display at the Show.

Silverstone Classic – 20/21/22 July 2018 provisional dates

The world’s biggest classic motor racing festival, the Silverstone Classic, joined us at the Show with some very special race cars, and talking about what’s in store for the 2018 event.

The packed weekend of the Silverstone Classic provides spectacular classic motor racing on the world famous circuit, impressive track parades, infield displays from over 100 car clubs featuring more than 10,000 classic cars, plus interactive driving activities and dynamic demonstrations. There’s plenty of entertainment to enjoy too, with live music from headline acts, air displays, a vintage fun fair, and a shopping village. It’s an event for the whole family and provides the ultimate annual celebration of classic cars. The team were on hand to tell you all about it.

Dare to be Different

Dare To Be Different is a ground-breaking, high-profile initiative spearheaded by former Formula 1 driver Susie Wolff and the Motor Sports Association (MSA) – the governing body of UK motor sport – with the aim of inspiring, connecting and celebrating women in every aspect of the sport.  They joined us at the Regent Street Motor Show to share details of how girls can get involved in Motor Sport.

Car Clubs join the party

This year, we were delighted to be joined by The Talbot Owners’ Club who were showcasing “London’s Own Car” and The Fiat 500 Car Club who were celebrating 60 years of this beautiful little car.

Abels Moving Services

Abels Moving Services has a rich moving heritage and was awarded the Royal Warrant in 1989 – a proud honour which they have held to this day.

It proudly owns a 1896 horse-drawn removal pantechnicon (as used in days gone by for the movement of personal possessions), which they were honoured to showcase at the Regent Street Motor Show the day prior to the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run which they were also proud to support through provision of luggage services. The removal trucks used for this are thankfully more modern and come equipped with state-of-the-art technology but removal vehicles through the ages were on display at the Show.
