Bourne Classic Car & Bike Show

Filed under: Shows |
Bourne Classic Car and Bike ShowThe Committee of Bourne Motor Racing Club are hard at work planning for this year’s Classic Car & Bike Show, the 7th running of the event. The show will take place on The Well Head Field in Bourne, Lincolnshire on Sunday June 10th 2012. Invitations have already been sent out to last year’s entrants, the early response is looking good, and the organisers are also concentrating on attracting new exhibitors to this year’s show. Once again there are plans to entertain the whole family, with plenty of craft stalls, the return of the Wississippi Jazz Band, a Magician for the youngsters and a wide range of refreshments. The Club are also working on the centrepiece of the show, which this year will be the iconic English Car Maker, Lotus. This tribute comes at an important time in Lotus’ history, as in 2012, the marque will celebrate several anniversaries, including 50 years of the Elan Sportscar, the 40th anniversary of the Esprit Supercar concept and the 35th anniversary of the first competitive outing of the 78 ground effect Lotus F1 car. Entry to the show will be free. Bourne’s Heritage Museum will be open throughout the day, and the show will close with the judging of vehicles, and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast, which in the past has proved to be a most popular part of the afternoon. Awards will also be made for the Lady & Gentleman most appropriately dressed for their vehicle. Anyone requiring more information, or wishing to enter either a classic vehicle (car or motorcycle) or race car should call 07760 171045 (evenings) or visit www.bourneclassiccarshow.co.uk to get an entry form. This year, entrants are invited with vehicles (including motorcycles ) registered in 1992 or earlier, and race cars of any age. The website also includes a full range of photographs and memories from last year’s show.Tags:
