35th Anniversary of the NEC Classic Car Show

 

8th – 10th November 2019

‘That Was the Show That Was’

 Featured in the November issue of the Driving Member XHP 438 was the star exhibit on the SP250 Owners Club Stand at the NEC. Thanks to Tony Merrygold at Jaguar Heritage Trust not only did we have this earliest SP250 in existence we also had the Titosky brothers and their family from Canada who had owned the car for the past 30 years.

Strangely this year not only did I have a link with the prototype, also on show was my previous SP250 (reg no 4068 WK) now owned by Rob Newman who kindly volunteered his services over the weekend. Considering I restored this car some 27 years ago its current custodian deserves praise for keeping the car up to show standard. Thanks must also go to Robert Grinter for bringing 472 SF his newly restored SP250 and Graham Watkins for exhibiting his car TCP 891.

Chris Dalton brought the Felday race car kindly loaned by Ron Walsh that carries an SP engine and the Jaguar Heritage Trust provided the V8 engine for exhibition which currently resides at the JHT Museum at Gaydon.

As always a huge thanks go to the club stalwarts who continuously answer the same questions over the weekend for their spirited enthusiasm in supporting the club and without whose help in organising the stand there would be no club presence at the show.

The 2020 show was cancelled, but hopefully the 2021 show will go ahead on 12th – 14th November 2021.

ALL BEING WELL THE CLUB WILL BE RETURNING TO THE NEC ON 12TH – 14TH  NOVEMBER 2021

 

PRACTICAL CLASSICS CLASSIC CAR & RESTORATION SHOW 2021 – NEC

            REGRETFULLY THIS SHOW HAS NOW BEEN POSTPONED.

                                We will advise you when a new date is arranged.

 

 

 

 THE SPA CLASSIC IN BELGIUM

Following the great success of the 2019 trip, Alan Mason was organising a return to the event in 2020.  The club cancelled their visit, and regretfully the organisers have also cancelled the 2021 event.

We hope to return in 2022.

 

 

THE SP NORFOLK SUMMER BREAK

Now booked for 31st August – 2nd September 2021. Two Nights at Park Farm Hotel  near Norwich. Driving to Suffolk on the third day.

This Annual event  took place in 2019, and once again it was a great success, enjoyed by all. At various times during the weekend we had up to nine SP250s and with one exception the weather was kind enough to allow hoods to be down.
Unfortunately we were forced to cancel the 2020 trip.

We have decided in 2021 on a mid week stay to avoid the crowded weekend calendar at the hotel, due to a backlog of weddings.

 

This is a very informal and friendly trip.

Use the contact page if you require further information or contact Stewart Amos. We have used our allocation of rooms but some may still be available.
