The 34th Vintage and Specialist Car Show at Tredegar House

Sunday September 21st Dragon Saab will have a club stand at this event, the largest and longest running classic motoring event in Wales.

We will displaying all types of Saab’s from Classic’s the very last model.

We look forward to seeing at the show!

Here’s some information from the show organisers.

 

Since its very small beginnings in 1980 the Vintage Rally has raised £788,000, taking the total amount raised by Gwent Branch to over £1,052,000. After 34 years, we’ve decided that the 2014 rally will be the final one. This does not mean that we will stop raising money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

 

The Gwent Branch will still be functioning, but maybe just in a less demanding way.

 

The Vintage Car Rally has been a fantastic event. It has been hard work but we have had plenty of fun organising it. We have met many wonderful people, made lots of friends and we have very many happy memories, but after 34 years the time has come for us to accept that we need to give it up now, before circumstances force it upon us.

 

Among the vehicles on display this year will be a 1906 Renault 10/14, a 1922 Bentley 3 litre sports, a 1928 Alvis 14/75 plus 100s of other vintage & classic cars, sports cars, motorcycles, military and commercial vehicles, steam engines and stationary engines over 1,500 exhibits in total. This is a real family event, not just a show for car lovers.

 

It will include a craft marquee, children’s rides and amusements and a wide range of stalls, autojumble, and trade stands.

 

Visitors will also be able to enjoy various living history encampments, ranging through the English Civil War, the American Civil War, WW1 and WW2, with the opportunity to see how these soldiers and their families lived.

 

A full range of arena activities is planned, including a parade of vehicles, and a vintage and classic car auction run by Newport Auctions, who will be donating all their fees and commissions to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. If you have a car to sell then please get in touch.

 

Back for another year, hoping that they will not have to perform in the pouring rain this time, will be the Rockwood Dog Display Team, with their breathtaking displays of canine wizardry.

 

The show gets under way at 10:30am on Sunday 21 September. Admission charges for visitors are £8 per adult, £7 for senior citizens and £5 for children. Family tickets cost £20 for two adults and up to four children under the age of 16. Dogs on leads are welcome and parking is free.

 

We are hoping that the sun will shine on us this year, as it has on so many occasions in the past, and make the 2014 rally one of the best ever.
