The theme of this year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, has been revealed as ‘The Journey Continues…’
Each year, the organisers challenge the exhibiting clubs and traders to create displays around a suggested theme that they can interpret in their own way. The show also creates feature displays and entertaining stage segments that are in keeping with the theme.
Show Director Lee Masters said: “We wanted the 2021 show theme to reflect where we all are right now – and that’s continuing our journey. Our lives and hobbies were somewhat put on hold due to covid but now, as the government roadmap unfolds, we can get back on the road, in every sense.
“So the journey continues… as it always has. The show, now in its 37th year, continues to grow and evolve as does our community. Classics continue to be handed down from generation to generation, but they too can evolve. There are a significant number of Continuation cars now available as well as vehicles that have had a change of use.
“But at a basic level, we can get our classics out and get back on the road, be it exploring the amazing routes around the UK or beyond.”
Headline sponsor Lancaster Insurance will be doing just that as its VW Camper restoration nears completion before it drives around the coast of Britain before being auctioned in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.
Andrew Evanson, Senior Operations Manager for Lancaster, said: “The Classic Motor Show is an unmissable event for enthusiasts. The past year has been extremely challenging for everyone and the show comes at a time when, hopefully, life can begin to see a return to normal for all of us.
“I’m very much looking forward to the auction of our van from Camper Round the Coast and, of course, seeing the vast array of classic cars on display.”
This year’s show is being planned with a number of covid safety measures still in place that can adapt with any changing guidelines.
When booking tickets, visitors will be asked to choose a specific arrival time and entrance hall from which to enter the show. The organisers are planning the event to ensure everyone gets the best possible experience whilst keeping safety the number one priority for all attendees. More information can be found on the show’s website.
