Car Clubs

BOOKING FOR CAR CLUB STANDS IS NOW OPEN!

        

We were delighted to have over 50 car and motorcycle clubs taking part in the 2013 Coventry Festival of Motoring, forming a wonderfully diverse display, and we hope to welcome even more clubs for 2014.

See the bottom of this page for booking forms.

The Historic Vehicle Run

 

The Run is the lynchpin of the Coventry Festival of Motoring and will once again be at the heart  of the action on Sunday.  Hundreds of cars and motorcycles will leave Stoneleigh Park and head off to take a  tour around some of Coventry`s most notable historic sights and then continue on the route through the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The route is approximately 50 miles in length and there are some lovely welcoming  pubs en route where you can stop off and have a bite to eat and drink. Club members displaying on stands may also take part in the Historic Vehicle Run.

See the bottom of this page for booking forms.

 

Entertainment

Once again there will be plenty to see and do over the weekend so we hope that you will encourage your friends and family to come along and join in the fun.

We have booked a variety of entertainment for both days including the electrifying Broke FMX,  featuring the UK`s top ranked freestyle motocross riders performing their latest heart stopping tricks. The ever popular Wall of Death will be thrilling the crowds again and The Coventry Corps of Drums will be delighting us with their marvellous marching music. All this and more, will take place in a new Entertainment Arena located adjacent to the car club stands.

SATURDAY NIGHT HOG ROAST

Following on from last year's very successful evening, you will be pleased to know that the Hog Roast is back on the menu, (with a vegetarian option) and with live music for your entertainment.  Regrettably we have had to increase the cost to £15 due to a considerable rise in expenses for the evening, however this still represents great value for a good night out.

ACCOMMODATION

As in previous years we are really keen for participants to bring their vehicles along for the whole weekend - if you're taking part in Sunday's Historic Vehicle Run you will have a dedicated pitch to display your vehicle for the whole weekend, giving you chance to really enjoy the festival 'fizz'.

COMPETITIONS

Why not add to your festival experience by getting involved in one of the Saturday competitions?  You can enter either or both of the competitions when you book online to take part in Sunday's Historic Vehicle Run.

Show & Shine Competition
FREE to enter - Saturday Afternoon

Sponsored by Jaguar Heritage

The Show & Shine competition aims to find cars that are beautifully maintained whilst also being regularly driven. Entry is only open to vehicles taking part in the Historic Vehicle Run or being displayed on Car Club stands.

Cash prizes will be awarded for the winning vehicles in the following categories: Pre-war Saloons, Pre-war Sports/Convertibles, Post-War Saloons, Post-War Sports/Convertibles, Saloons from 1980 onwards, and Sports/Convertibles from 1980 onwards.

Entry is limited to six vehicles per category - in the event that a category is oversubscribed, entrants will be drawn out of a hat.
See the bottom of this page for entry forms.

WheelSkills
FREE to enter - Saturday morning 

Designed and Sponsored by The Watsonian Motorcycle & Sidecar Company

We would really like the car clubs to get involved with the competition to make Saturday afternoon an enjoyable and fun occasion by making it an Inter Club Event.

If two members from each club would take part it would generate  some healthy and lively competition. Choose two of your finest to represent your club, then cheer them on to victory and we will award prizes for the winners.

A super-fun and enjoyable competition - entrants are given a series of challenges designed to test how good they are at parking, reversing and precision manoeuvring, with points given for knocking over planks, hitting cones or dislodging tennis balls.  The driver with the least points at the end of the day wins!  There is no extra credit for speed or style - slow and steady will almost definitely win the race.
