The Warwick Classic Car Show show started in 2009 and until this year was called ‘Retro Warwick’. Last year was the first time that the historic organisation of the Warwick Court Leet got involved in the organisation, that continued for this year and what a friendly and helpful bunch of people the members are. A special thanks to the lady member who, with her husband, owns the Austin Seven Chummy featured below. She went out of her way to introduce me to Matt and Alan, two of the organisers. I also said hello to Councillor Richard Eddy, Mayor of Warwick and Mark Robertson his Consort. They were there in support of the event, a much appreciated gesture.
This was the fourth year that I have attended this event and the first that the sun hasn’t shone brightly, ironic when considering that this has been one the best summers, for hot sunny weather, the U.K. has seen for many years. Inevitably numbers of both exhibitors and visitors were down from previous years. But the enthusiasm on display was undiminished. Many thanks to the owners of some stunning cars who braved the weather to turn up this year to give us petrol heads something very worthwhile to drool over. We certainly were not disappointed. Here is just a flavour of the cars on show: –

That’s all folks! Thanks to the Warwick Court Leet and all those who made this such an enjoyable motoring experience but a special thanks to all those who brought your cars to display.
