‘Classic and Fringe’ cars to gather at the British Motor Museum

Autumn Classic and FringeAccording to the meteorological calendar, summer is over, which means it might be time to start preparing your classic car for hibernation. But not before you’ve attended a few more classic car shows.

On Sunday 25 September, over 100 classics of the present and the future are expected to gather at the British Motor Museum for the popular Autumn Classic and Fringe event. We’re reliably informed this doesn’t involve having a hair cut, rather the inclusion of cars that aren’t classed as bona fide classics.

This year’s event will see visits from the Jensen Interceptor Club and kei cars from Japan. Entrance is open to both clubs and individuals at a cost of £9 per person, payable on the day, if they arrive in a classic car. Entrants will also receive a free tea or coffee upon arrival, as well as entry to the British Motor Museum.

Simon Carr, clubs and rallies coordinator at the British Motor Museum, said: “Our Autumn Classic is the final gathering of the season for all classic and fringe vehicles. The event is expected to attract a vast range of different classics and is a fabulous day out for like-minded individuals.”

The British Motor Museum is the new name of the recently revamped Heritage Motor Centre, which houses the collections of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust. It can be found in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and is open to the public daily from 10am to 5pm.

Anyone wishing to attend the Classic and Fringe event is invited to turn up from 9.30am. For more information, please contact Simon Carr on 01926 645105 or email clubs@britishmotormuseum.co.uk.

Has an unhealthy obsession with cars of the 80s and 90s. Doesn’t really do supercars. Not a huge fan of sports cars. But loves the undervalued and the underwhelming.

Is probably a bit strange.
