The Retro Rides Gathering returns again to the historic Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb in Worcestershire. As always we will bring together our mix of club stands and RWYB hillclimb action, along with invited guest cars, retro parking, trade stands, prizes and our great laid back atmosphere.
Our club stands always attract a diverse range of clubs in ever increasing numbers, this year we have even more room for them, we'll also be able to host the Retro Parking in the same field. So far we have well over a thousand retro club stand cars booked in across over seventy clubs and we expect this number to continue rising.
Guest cars are one of our favourite parts of the show, giving us the excuse to make cars we really want to see attend the show. In the past we have been the first event in the UK to bring a competing Berg Cup car to the UK from Europe and run it up the hillclimb. We've bought over mind blowing 1000bhp monsters and had rare race cars take to the hill at our events. This year we're planning even more special cars for our guest slots, so keep an eye on our facebook page for updates.
As we always say Hot Hatch to Hot Rod, Racer to Road Car, Drifter to Daily the Retro Rides Gathering blends it all together into a delicious day of car action. Sunday 20th August, don't miss it!
Please note: No dogs are allowed on site
Through out the day the hill at Shelsley Walsh will be alive with the sound of engines, from the small to the large we'll see all sorts attempting to get to the top of the hill as quickly or smoothly as possible.
Our event is about the diversity of our scene so we like to see as many makes and types of cars represented as possible, from the full house race cars to the retro daily driver out for the weekend. If you would like to have a go at the hill the full details can be found here on our forum. Session are either morning or afternoon and we hope to get at least three runs in for everyone in either session, which we have been successful at doing the last few years.
So if you've never been on track or hillclimb before, or if you're out there every weekend doing it, drop an application in and hopefully we can add you to our selection of cars attacking the oldest operational motorsport venue in the world.
Clubs stands are integral to our diverse show, stand booking is now open. It is pretty simple, you tell us:
ADDRESS TO SEND PASSES
NUMBER YOU NEED (maximum of 25 passes)
Emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll send you the passes before the event, you distribute them to your members, they arrive with the passes and their tickets (or buy on the gate, but it would make things easier if they bought up front), we guide them to the right place and they have a good time.
Please note that we desire club stands to be predominantly pre-95, there are plenty of shows on the events calendar for more modern cars, we love retro cars at The Gathering. This year we'll be putting stock moderns in the normal car park even with a club pass, show field for show cars please :)
Note: Car passes are not tickets, they are simply there to make sure the club area is run efficiently. Your members will still need to buy entry tickets.
As a trade stand exhibitor you will play an invaluable part in the Gathering and form a part of the visitors' enjoyment.
