Classic Vehicles in the Park - Brackley

More than 75 classic vehicles including cars, vans and tractors have already been booked for a vintage vehicle show. But there is still plenty of time to book your own classic motor in.

And with more space available this year, there is room for more vehicles than ever before.

But you don’t have to own a period vehicle to enjoy the Classic Vehicle Show at Brackley Park next to the old fire station on Sunday August 23, because the show is open to the public to go along and admire all the sleek and shiny chassis on display.

More than 80 vehicles were on display at last year’s show. This year’s charity event is organised on behalf of the Town Mayor, Cllr JIm Broomfield,in support of his two main charities, the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance and Katherine House Hospice.

Both organisations will be on site, assisting at the event.

Tea and coffee and cakes will be provided by the Girl Guides, with a full barbecue being organised by Brackley Butchers.

This year’s event is supported by Brackley based Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 Team who will have an F1 car on display.

Additionally, classic car insurers Hagerty from Towcester, will be at the show with a selection of classic cars that belong to its staff, and also to discuss any individual classic vehicle insurance needs.

The venue of the show is close to the town centre, with easy access to the local shops and the largest antique centre in the South Midlands.

The event is open to the public from 11am through to 4pm.With exhibitors being in place before the general public are admitted, vehicle entry and booking-in will be between 9am and 10.45am.

A rally entry fee/donation of £5 per vehicle is requested, rally plaques will be issued, together with certificates awarded to the best in each class of vehicle and overall best vehicle at the event.

This year, in addition to the Park there will be further space available in the adjacent picturesque setting of Brackley’s Old Manor House,which is now used as a private school (Winchester House School).

Vehicles registered before the event will be given priority. Anyone interested in securing a space should download an entry form and show details from www.brackleynorthants-tc.gov.uk/uploads/classic-vehicles-in-the-park-pdf.pdf
