Silverstone Classic – 21/22/23 July 2017*

Silverstone Classic 2016

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 2017 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.

Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of James Hunt’s Championship Victory

2016 marks 40 years since James Hunt’s extraordinary World Championship winning campaign in 1976 as told in the award-winning movie Rush.

To mark the occasion, James’ title-winning McLaren M23 was on show and his son, Freddie – who bears a striking resemblance to his dashing father – was present for photographs and signings of a special commemorative book during the day.

Car Clubs join the party

This year, we were delighted to be joined by The Jaguar Drivers’ Club (celebrating its 60th anniversary), and the Piper Sports & Racing Car Club. Both were featuring displays as part of the Show.

BBC Children in Need Vintage Buses

On November the 6th (the day after the Regent Street Motor Show), the pre-1905 veteran cars taking part in the Bonhams London to Brighton Veteran Car Run supported by Hiscox were joined by 3 very special vintage buses which were given special dispensation to join the Run in support of a fabulous BBC Children in Need auction prize.  The buses joined us for this year’s Show!

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.
