27 - 29 Aug: Oulton Park Gold Cup
This is the North West's premier historic race meeting which usually attracts a huge field of widely diverse classic racing machinery. Whilst the main days are Sunday and Monday, you can also access the practice sessions on Saturday 27th.
All the local Classic Car Clubs make a big effort to show off their cars at this event which is positioned towards the end of the Classic Car season. There is a large turnout of classic cars and owners no doubt attracted by the FREE tickets on offer. Couple this with artisan market stalls, live music, great food, a classic car auction, the Concours D'Esprit and the exemplary presentation of the Oulton Park circuit under the stewardship of Dr. Jonathan Palmer and you have an event not to be missed!
Sunday racing starts at 12.00 noon allowing the local residents a bit of peace and quiet before the classic engines roar into life. This allows us the morning to chat and browse the stalls selling spares, memorabilia, clothing and model cars as well as wandering around the 1,000 plus cars in the Classic Car display.
We have our usual pitch overlooking Cascades (together with our gazebo (which utilises the same colours as our website! — grey, red and white) — as its usually too hot to sit in the direct sun.
