We’ve just heard about a new event in Devon celebrating all things motoring….
For many years the South West has been sorely in need of a true festival event to celebrate all things motoring – and we are delighted to announce the inaugural Castle Hill Car Festival to be held on Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th August 2013.
The Festival will be staged in the magnificent parkland grounds of the Castle Hill estate near South Molton in Devon, just 40 mins from the M5, and will include a display of over 1,000 classic and historic vehicles from clubs and private owners and will feature a special showcase display of Aston Martins to celebrate their centenary year.
Bonhams, the international specialist auctioneers and valuers will have a team of staff on hand to provide advice as well as confidential valuations for owners. In addition there will be a Trade Exhibition area for products and services to the classic car market.
For the more ambitious owners there will be an exciting MSA regulated sprint trial organised by the North Devon Motor Club through the heart of the estate, plus a choice of two road rallies. In addition there will be a full programme of arena events and an extensive auto jumble.
More information and a booking form is available for download from our website at – www.castlehillcarfestival.co.uk
The cost for exhibiting cars will be £5.00, (includes driver and one passenger) for one or both days and camping is available for £10.00. Food, drink and evening entertainment will be available for campers.
There has been considerable interest in the Festival and club spaces are expected to book out quickly and so early booking will be essential. Applications will be approved on a first come, first served basis.
Here at UKMT we have also noted the very reasonable visitor ticket prices… Adults £12, Children 5-16 £6, and under-fives £FREE..! There won’t be any advance ticket sales… Payment is cash only on entrance to the site.
