Statement from the organisers:
"It is with great sadness that Clarion Events has decided to postpone the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery.
The event team have been continually monitoring the latest public health and government guidelines regarding the evolving COVID-19 situation and acting in accordance with their advice.
The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, exhibitors, partners, contractors and staff is the most important factor and therefore the only action for all involved is to postpone.
We are working with the NEC to find suitable options to reschedule the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show with Discovery, please bear with us as we work to secure a new date line.
Tickets already purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date. We will be in touch with all our visitors as soon as we have more information to share.
We are truly sorry that we have had to make this extremely difficult decision and thank you all for your patience, understanding and support in this unprecedented situation.
Classic Car Auctions will be running their auction at the Warwickshire Event Centre. Please visit www.classiccarauctions.co.uk for further details, including how to view and bid."
With over 1,000 cars on display and more than 250 exhibitors, the show boasts a huge amount to see and do over the March weekend. Whether you’re a classic car enthusiast or want to share your passion with family and friends, the competitions, celebrities and auctions are likely to surprise and delight.
Take a journey through the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration show floor to discover classics you love and remember. From lovingly restored Austins to pristine Ferraris, visitors are bound to find something special in this collection of 1,300+ classic cars.
Special displays in 2019 included:
The classic car auction returns after a strong year in 2019 where sales reached a total value of over £2.4 million! Particular highlights of the auction were a 990 Mercedes 420 SEC which sold at more than double its original estimate, a rare right-hand drive 1982 DeLorean DMC-12 and a 1969 Fiat Dino 2.4 Coupe that gained a huge amount of interest from exited bidders.
“This was CCA’s third year at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show and yet again a fantastic start to our year. Well over £2 million worth of cars sold and a sales rate of 79% is a testament to our vendors and buyers alike. See you there next year!”
-Gary Dunne, Auction Manager - Classic Car Auctions
The Sporting Bears Motor Club will be offering visitors a once in a lifetime opportunity to take a ten mile ride as a passenger in their favourite car. Whether your ultimate ride is a steam engine or Lamborghini Huracan, the Sporting Bears Dream Rides Garage will offer you the chance to experience it in exchange for a charitable donation. All money raised goes towards children’s charities across the nation, so it’s all for a wonderful cause.
Pick up a bargain in one of the greatest places in the UK to find all the motoring spare parts, literature and accessories you could ever need! The hundreds of stands will ensure there’s something for everybody and makes this an essential pit stop while you explore the rest of the show.
We’ll once again be attending the show this year to offer bespoke insurance quotes on your classic car. We have a few surprises in store - more details will be revealed soon!
