Our next Annual Classic Car Meet
23 August 2015
The 2014 Thornfalcon Classic Car Show, once again proved an enormous success, and we would like to extend a huge thank you to all who attended and of course, all who gave up their time to help stage the event.
This year the weather was absolutely glorious, full sun from early in the morning. Again vehicles came from far and wide with around 1,200 cars and over 60 motorcycles crowding the park to present a feast for motor enthusiasts. We decided this year to change things around a little to help speed up entry and lessen chances of over-heating. This meant that we did away with the previous zoning for period or classification. Instead we marshalled vehicles in to rows and tiers around the park. We did however cordon off an area for a number of clubs, but by and large drivers were happy to go with the flow. The result a far more diverse mix of vehicles and a more entertaining way of viewing for spectators. Drifting through the lines the sight of Citroen Traction next to Bull-nosed Morris next to a Cadillac was a quite something to see as opposed to a group of one marque after another. So next year we will continue in this vein and encourage groups to arrive together if they want park as a group.
Next year's event will be on Sunday 23 August
AT THE PARKLANDS, HENLADE, NR.TAUNTON, SOMERSET.
