Come and Meet Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer at our Classic Car Show

Our annual Classic Car Show & Autojumble will be on Sunday 14th August 2016 at its usual venue of the Cranleigh Showground from 9.30am to 4.30pm

If you've not been to our car show before you are in for a treat!

For members of the family that aren't so excited about the 1,800 classic vehicles of all shapes and sizes visit us during the day, we have plenty of other attractions:

  • Craft and antique stands
  • Rides and attractions for the kids including Disney inflatable slide, chair-o-plane ride, bungee trampoline, roundabout and kid's strength test
  • The popular Lions' train running around the showground
  • Live jazz band from 11am
  • Plenty of food and drink, from an early breakfast, through lunch to afternoon tea
  • Licensed bar

Of course we still have all the usual car show attractions including autojumble and trade stands, arena events hosted by TV's Mike Brewer, car clubs and many unusual vehicles including:

  • An original 1974 Peugeot 304S Cabriolet used in Stella Artois advertising in 2012
  • A 1961 BMW Isetta 300 restored from a rusty shell and boxes of bits in 2008
  • Bought for just £40 in 1996, a 1968 Ford Escort undergoing a rolling restoration
  • An eclectic selection of commercial and agricultural vehicles
  • Many restoration projects, some professional, some completed by determined owners in cold, cramped garages
  • Classic speedway motorcycles, plus a varied collection from the Dorking & District Motorcycle Club

The Cranleigh Lions Classic Car show is a annual fixture for the Brooklands Museum Trust who will have an interesting variety of vehicles and will be taking part in two trips to the arena at 11.30am and 2.30pm.

While you are on their stand, don't forget to take a look at the Brooklands Routemaster bus, which is celebrating 60 years since the iconic form of transport came into service.

Amazing Auction Prize

If you have ever fancied being a passenger in a Group 4 rally car, now is your opportunity!

We are auctioning four opportunities to sit in the passenger seat of a rare Renault 5 Turbo Group 4 rally car, as it completes a high speed run of Dunsfold Park runway at Wings & Wheels on either the 27th or 28th August 2016.

This 270bhp, rear engined beauty of a car won the 1982 French Rally Championship and was driven by rally stars Jean Ragnotti and Jean-Luc Thérier. The four winners of the auction are in for quite a ride!

You can find more out about the Renault in our packed Show Guide, which costs just £4.

Last year we auctioned rides in the DAM4100 Group B rally car, which you can see in this video, so you know what you are letting yourself in for!

Bids can be placed on the Brookland's stand where the Renault will be parked on the day of the show only. We're only collecting bids, winning bids are paid for during the week after our Classic Car Show. Full terms and conditions of the auction are available.

Entry for 2016 is £7 for adults, free for children under 16. A show guide is available and costs £4.
