The 2019 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is now less than 1 week away from its 35th anniversary with a ‘super show’ planned by the organisers and sponsors.
Preparations are now in full swing, as the distinguished Birmingham NEC braces itself for the largest annual classic gathering of enthusiasts, dealers, traders, collectors and auctioneers in the UK.
This year’s show begins Friday 8-10 November 2019 and will exhibit over 2,500 amazing classic cars and motorbikes covering around a million square feet, making it the biggest indoor classic event in the country.
Classic Motor Show Sponsor
Lancaster Insurance, headline sponsor of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year by displaying on two adjacent stands in Hall One. Fully embracing the Top Trumps theme, the classic car insurance specialist has launched a Special Edition Top Trumps pack and five of the packs will randomly feature an exclusive golden ticket. The lucky winners will each receive a pair of day tickets to Goodwood Revival 2020, an overnight stay and dinner. (T&Cs apply)
Andrew Evanson, Senior Operations Manager at Lancaster Insurance:
“The show, like Top Trumps, evokes a feeling of nostalgia for many visitors as they look back and reminisce about the cars and memories from years gone by. This special theme is a perfect one as we mark 35 years of being part of the classic car community and we can’t wait to celebrate with visitors, clubs and exhibitors alike.”
Flatnose Porsche 911
Some of the cars featured in the pack will be on display on Lancaster’s stand in Hall One and will include an extremely desirable Flatnose Porsche 911. The ‘Flachbau’ (“flatnose” or “slantnose”) 930 was certainly a unique car offered by the German manufacturer, produced under ‘Sonderwunschprogramm’ (special order program) from the early ’80s.
Joining the German contingency is an MG Maestro Turbo, Volkswagen Type 2, Morris Mini Cooper, Ford Escort Mexico Mk1 and a Ford Mustang. The stand will also act as a collection point for attendees to pick up their pack.
The 1991 Mk1 Mazda Eunos Roadster which Lancaster is giving away in December will also be featured and visitors can enter the free prize draw throughout the weekend. Lancaster’s project car for next year will also be unveiled at the show.
Finally, for a first this year, Lancaster is creating ‘Lancaster TV’ with Kelsey Media. Over the three days, a ‘chat show’ will be hosted with special guests and the videos will be uploaded onto social media daily.
