Retro Show

Sunday 19th June 2022 at Santa Pod Raceway

Car Show With Run What Ya Brung on Saturday 18th June 2022

The Retro Show is a classic car and bike show with a difference: Unlike most car shows where you park up in a field and sip tea, this is an action-packed day where you can take part in the racing and show & shine whatever type of retro machinery you have. Retro Show is open to all retro vehicles including cars, bikes, scooters and lorries from the 1950’s through the 1980’s to 2000.

Tickets Available 1st December.
