START your engines and turn the dial up on your car radio – it’s high time you got some wind through your hair and headed to Ripon. Why? One of the biggest events on the motoring calendar returns to the city’s racecourse on Sunday April 23rd and it coincides with the UK’s annual ‘Drive It’ day too.
‘Drive It’ encourages classic car aficionados to jump in their vehicles and put the pedal to the metal. And we say there’s no better excuse than the Classic Car and Bike Show in Ripon to get behind the wheel and enjoy a grand day out.
Located in the heart of picturesque Yorkshire and a mere 11 miles north of Harrogate, for the14th time the racecourse provides the perfect spot for some of the UK’s most iconic cars. Get revved up for some real excitement, as you’ll see everything from classic MGs to Austin Sevens and Land Rovers. You can even show off your own classic car or bike, with highlights for visitors including the popular auto jumble, trade stands and lots more.
Families will love the chance to get up close and personal to hundreds of vintage vehicles in what’s geared up to be a great day out for everyone. Taking place between 10am and 4pm, admission is priced at just £6.50 per adult and £2.50 for children.
To get to the venue, simply take the A61 to the Ripon bypass and then follow the brown signs to the racecourse.
