Events

 

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, mainly just to the North of Leeds. 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.

 

Currently, most of our meets and activities take place in the Yorkshire region: Harrogate, Ilkley, Leeds, Otley, Wetherby and York, with trips into the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales. In the longer-term, we have plans to expand things further afield too.
