Inaugural Footman James Epsom Classic Car Rally


On Saturday 3 June, the inaugural Epsom Classic Car Rally will be taking place during the Epsom Derby. The event will be hosted at Tattenham Corner, found within the Epsom Downs Racecourse.

Footman James has been named as the sponsor for this one of a kind event, that will bring a wide range of classic cars together at one of the country’s most loved horse racing events.

Hundreds of vehicles expected

Hundreds of classic cars are expected to attend the event on 3 June. They will be provided from both private owners and car clubs across the country.

Due to the high number of vehicles attending, all kinds of marques can be expected. Attendees will be able to see all the cars up-close, as well as being able to visit different exhibitors, all while the famous derby takes place.

Anyone visiting the inaugural Epsom Classic Car Rally will also have access to the rest of the Epsom Derby experience. The derby will feature music, a funfair and more in ‘The Hill’; a special area located within the racecourse.

‘A whole new experience and unique environment’

As David Bond, Director at Footman James, explains, the show is something new for the classic car calendar.

He says: “The Footman James Epsom Classic Car Rally concept provides classic car owners a whole new experience and unique environment in the event calendar".

“We can’t wait to see the showcase of four wheels as well as witnessing the thoroughbreds competing in the World’s most famous flat race. We look forward to seeing many enthusiasts on the day!”
