At RetroTorque, we appreciate classic cars of all marques, models and eras! And we want to connect with all motoring enthusiasts… So, whether you have a 1905 Rolls-Royce, a 1954 MG TF, a 1970 Lancia Fulvia Zagato, or a more modern, cherished 2010 Mazda MX-5, for example, you're welcome to exhibit your pride and joy with us at this show!

 

The show will be open to the public, and we'd be delighted if non-exhibitors would come and look at the cherished vehicles on display! It's a chance for all fellow classic car enthusiasts to meet up and make friends!

 

The show will also feature the talented Leeds Folk Fiddle Group, led by violin teacher Iveta Hlavenkova, who will play a lively selection of their joyous repertoire, including Irish jigs, reels and polkas, Klezmer music and traditional Celtic melodies. (Weather permitting.)

Also, please note the following - a polite notice:


 
On the day of the show, at the sole discretion of the event organisers, we reserve the right to refuse entry to exhibitors for any reason we deem appropriate. This is with particular regard to any safety concerns we may have about a vehicle. Also, space is limited, so we will not be able to accommodate any vehicle we consider too large, such as a large lorry with a trailer.


 
Also, to be accepted into the display area, your vehicle must be of some sort of vehicle a motoring enthusiast would generally appreciate as a being a classic car, or interesting or special. And, as already outlined, whilst most of the vehicles on display will be from bygone eras, more modern classics, special and rare cars are fine too.


 
We are happy to answer questions from prospective exhibitors before the day of the show - if in any doubt about anything, please email us.


 
We plan that the event will go ahead in all weather conditions, including heavy and persistent rain.


 
Tickets purchases are non-refundable.


 
We encourage all exhibitors and guests to take sensible precautions regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Where appropriate, the use of face masks and sanitising hand-gels is encouraged, along with social distancing and other sensible measures, at your discretion.

Our regular, informal pub meets form the backbone of our events calendar.

 

We hold these ‘display your vehicle’ style meetings at a few venues every month throughout the year. Right now, probably our stand-out meet is the fine dining lunchtime meet at The Punch Bowl Inn, Marton-cum-Grafton, near Boroughbridge, held each 1st Saturday of the month. It’s very well attended with some great Classic Cars on display.

We also arrange drive-outs, tours, museum visits, car club show displays, and other sorts of events.

We now wish to expand the scope of the website to include classic car enthusiasts from all over the UK. We are looking to increase our membership to hold meetings, events, and shows over the widest geographical reach possible.
