Great British Motor Shows brings the best of classic, modified and performance cars and motorbikes to Ripley Castle for a record-breaking 40th time, making it an event to remember.

Packing Ripley’s magnificent show field next to the lake, there will be a sweeping display of hundreds of classic cars from all eras, plus classic motorcycles, kit cars, custom, modern classics, vans, light commercials, trucks and Land Rovers.

Chilling and chatting will give you the chance to swap advice and tales of motoring adventure with fellow enthusiasts.

There are plenty of chances to browse for bargains, project parts, or that historic insignia with the auto jumble and a range of varied trade stands.  Refuel and relax at the many refreshment stops.

Bygone Classics, the Yorkshire based family run classic car hire business will be exhibiting at the show with a few of their amazing cars from their collection.  They’ll also be on hand to answer any questions about hiring any of their 13 cars.  Read more about their partnership with our Yorkshire shows.
