Do We Have Cars For You!

As ever, classic vehicle owners from wide and far are flocking to Cranleigh to show their vehicles. And what an eclectic collection there will be to see!

The oldest car is a 1925 Dodge 25 Business Sedan, with vehicles of all shapes and sizes, polished or unpolished, immaculate or a bit rough around the edges, up until 1999. There may be a few younger modern classics too.

In addition to a mix of different cars, we have motorbikes, tractors, military, and commercial vehicles; something for everyone.

In the arena at 11:25, we will be celebrating the 60th birthday of the Mini and the 50th birthday of the Ford Capri, both much loved iconic British vehicles.

And if you are thinking about buying your first classic vehicle, we have a selection of cars in the arena at 12:15 to whet your appetite, plus the opportunity to ask some questions. 

At 2 pm we have the gymkhana, last year we had Minis, this year we have Morgans taking part. Five teams, lots of cones, a big timing clock and a loud horn. Come and cheer on the teams as they attempt tricky precision driving tests – it’s not the fastest that wins!

For details and time of arena events please see the Arena Programme.
