Classic car dealers
JD Classics, Graypaul Classic Cars, DD Classics and Hexagon Classics are among those who have signed-up already.
Organisers promise several surprises. But one stunner already booked in is the Jaguar XKSS. This genuine Le Mans motor had the potential to hit speeds of between 160 and 170mph in its 1950s heyday. Yet ordinary motorists could own one with just the addition of a windscreen and a more comfortable seat.
