Classic Car and Bike Run and Show 2017

Sunday 9th July 2017  (Fundraising)

Cromer to Great Yarmouth

We are delighted to announce that for the first time in the 5 year history of the event we are inviting anyone with a vintage, classic or unusual bike to join us.

The 6th Centre 81 Classic Car & Bike Run and Show is heading north to start where it all began at Runton Road Car Park on the beautiful cliff top of Cromer.  A 60 mile, or thereabouts, idyllic route is currently in the planning stage but I am sure it will take in some of the beautiful coastal villages and beauty spots.  What I can assure you of is the end and show will be on the wonderful Great Yarmouth seafront.

Our comfort stop is being hosted by Spencer and Bunny Turner at their gorgeous home in Smallburgh.  Don’t worry it’s a lovely place with ample room for parking.  We will be providing the hot food, drinks and homemade cakes, all to their usual high standard.

As with our previous events we will end our run and host the show at the Marina Gardens, adjacent to the Sealife Centre on Great Yarmouth seafront.  We are also pleased to announce that we will have more room available to us and apart from our event you will have a chance to enjoy the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival.  We are hoping to make it another year to remember where all the family can enjoy a spectacular day out in glorious sunshine!!

The Run and Show are open to everyone with a classic or unusual car, bike or other  vehicle.  We would also like to invite to the run anyone attending the Great Yarmouth Wheels Festival Weekend.

If you are part of another vehicle display/event over weekend 8th/9th July but would like to join us Sunday morning to give your pride and joy a run out, then we would love to see you.  Just complete the registration form by ticking run only.

This year for all those who are part of the show we will be presenting trophies for:

  • Best in Show – Trophy donated by Mr Edward Hayden
  • Oldies but Goodies – (Pre 1959)
  • Swinging Sixties (1960 to 1969)
  • Future Classics (1970+)

Prizes will also be presented for:

  • The “Drippiest Award” (the vehicle that drips the most oil!)
  • The “I’m Exhausted Award” (the vehicle that has travelled the furthest to get to the start)

The judging of the vehicles will take place from 1pm.  Presentation of the Trophies and Prizes will be around 4pm (weather permitting)
