Motoring fun at Haynes International Motor Museum in October

Pencil these dates into your diary at the Haynes International Motor Museum for October half term. Fun for all the family. See one of the oldest cars in the museum's extensive collection brought back to life and have the chance to meet model maker David Hayward.


118-year-old Darracq will drive again

One of the oldest cars in the museum’s collection, the 1903 Type L Darracq will be put through her paces outside the museum this October, before she takes part in the 125th anniversary of the London-Brighton Veteran Car Run.

For visitors, it’s a rare opportunity to see how a 100-year-old car works, take some photos and meet some of the restoration team who look after her! Times and dates to be confirmed.
