Well I went today and splashed out my £30 entry fee, I must say I feel a little disappointed with what was there.

New car dealers at a classic car show?, not any real club presence except Porsche, who had a nice stand, mostly high end dealers and I didn't see a single Elan

Yes, agree but the high strieet with the parade of Porsche 917 is very nice
Anyway Auto Moto Epoca in Padua is much better

Yes, not a great show and a shadow of its former self. A couple of years ago it was so much larger and had the added motorsport festival alongside.

Save your money and go to the NEC in March (resto show) or November.(Classic show).

Two Lotus Cortinas, one Lotus Sunbeam and one Eclat! However three Lamborghini Miuras and a 275 GTB.

Would I go again? No.

And an M100 in the Coy's auction area, the 50,000 Lotus and apparently the one sold for the Princes Trust.

Agreed, enjoyed 2 years ago with the historic motorsport show better as an event, but had a good day out with my brother yesterday and listened to some interesting talks.

Looking forward to Race Retro next weekend.
