MotorMartin loves a car show, especially if the particular show in question features cars that are bright red and built in Maranello. All of which means that the 2017 London Classic Car Show, which moves into its third year with a host of spectacular features guaranteed to excite motoring enthusiasts of all ages and interests, will be an event that MotorMartin is very much looking forward too.
Fortunately, the show will be returning to ExCeL London and will be held on 23-26 February 2017, whilst hoping to build on the record 33,000 visitors who visited the 2016 event.
The London Classic Car Show have confirmed to MotorMartin that amongst the new features planned is a celebration marking 70 years of Ferrari road cars while a display focusing on the life and work of a top motoring personality will be another highlight: previous shows have turned the spotlight on Red Bull designer Adrian Newey and Gordon Murray and the McLaren F1.
It’s been confirmed that popular features such as The Grand Avenue and Car Club Square will return, bigger and better than ever. The Grand Avenue, a roadway running through the centre of the show, allows visitors to see and hear their favourite classics in action. This time, The Grand Avenue will have an open paddock allowing visitors to get even closer to the cars.
Introduced in 2016, Car Club Square had displays from leading one-make classic car clubs and proved an instant hit. For 2017, more clubs will be invited to display a range of models, while top classic dealers will be on hand with mouth-watering machinery for sale.
As in previous years, The London Classic Car Show will attract a large number of celebrities from the motoring world over the four days of the event. Previous guests include: James May, Chris Evans, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Sir Stirling Moss, Ari Vatanen, Gordon Murray, James Martin and Jodie Kidd. Expect plenty more big names in 2017.
“Although only in its third year, the London Classic Car Show has already established itself as the classic car show by which all others are judged. We have introduced many innovative features and have more exciting plans for 2017,” shared event director Bas Bungish with MotorMartin.
Tickets to the London Classic Car Show 2017 are now available from the show website – thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk – and start at £24 for single adult entry (£27 on the door on the day) which, in MotorMartin’s opinion, is a bit of a bargain.
Full details and pictures from the event can be found via the show’s official website – thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk – and Facebook pages and MotorMartin certainly recommends that you visit at least one of the two.
