Race Retro is Europe’s premier international car show for classic, competition and historic motorsport cars and bikes.
The event is open to all pre-1980s vehicles but exceptions may be made at the discretion of the organisers for particularly interesting later vehicles.
Sunday 11th will be devoted to display and driving the famous hill, with passengers if you wish, in marshalled but un-timed runs. Un-timed runs eliminate the need for crash helmets and the full gamut of safety equipment etc. However vehicles must be road legal i.e. taxed and insured. A Paddock entry donation of £50 per vehicle covers 2 runs up the hill, all passengers and a souvenir programme. Entries will be limited to 200. Any additional runs available will be offered to paddock entrants, for further donations.
As before, we will also be having a static display in designated areas for classic, vintage and special vehicles. For those who wish to partake, we will also be repeating the gentle cavalcades up the hill so that vehicles can be displayed in motion to the attending public. We feel this significantly enhances the presentation of the superb range of vehicles expected. A Static entry donation of £20 per car, covers all passengers, a free programme and a cavalcade drive up the hill. Block bookings by Clubs will be particularly welcome and we will endeavour to park such groups together.
On Saturday 10th we are offering an about 60 mile Cotswold tour starting and finishing at Prescott.
Spectators will be welcome on the Sunday, with a suggested donation for our charities of £15 per car.
All profits will go to Charities supported by Rotary and in order to maximise this, we are asking for your cooperation, where appropriate, to gift aid your payments so that we can reclaim tax.
