Bourne classic car show promises to be biggest ever

Have your say

The finals touches are being made to plans for the 2013 Classic Car and Bike Show in Bourne which promises to be the biggest yet.

The event organised by Bourne Motor Racing Club will take place on the Wellhead in Bourne on Sunday, June 9.

This year will be the eighth year the show has run and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

The centrepiece of this year’s show is a display organised by Porsche Club Great Britain, which is celebrating 50 years of the iconic Porsche 911.

A spokesman from Bourne Motor Racing Club said: “Response from entrants once again has been excellent, and we have more vehicles promised for the show than ever before.”

This year, visitors who purchase a programme will be eligible to enter a prize draw where the winner will have the opportunity of a lifetime to attend a private test session at Silverstone and be driven around the circuit in an iconic Jaguar D Type Sportscar.

Further prizes have also been donated by local businesses.

Subject to ground conditions, public parking will be available on the Wellhead Field for a small charge and as in previous years, entry into the show will be free.

The Lazy Alligator Jazz Band are booked to perform, and a Punch and Judy Show will entertain the children.

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 popular part of the afternoon.

Awards will also be made for the man and woman most appropriately dressed for their vehicle.

This year, entrants are invited with vehicles, including motorcycles, registered in 1993 or earlier, and race cars of any age.

Anyone requiring more information, or wishing to enter either a classic vehicle, car or motorcycle, or race car should call 01733 253867 in the evening or visit to get an entry form.

The website also includes a full range of photographs and memories from last year’s show.
