Last year, The Grand Avenue played host to everything from Sixties supercars via London to Brighton veterans to a genuine Lotus F1 car. For 2016, The Grand Avenue will be even grander with a significant increase in track distance.An addition to the Show for 2016 is an entire new hall dedicated to prestige and performance classics with privately owned examples representing the country’s 25 leading car clubs helping to form an entire show within a show.Inspired by a British Motor Show from the 1960s, period entertainment will enhance the hall’s retro vibe and there will also be stands from leading classic car dealers.Another new feature is ‘Classic Corner’, an open forum where guest speakers will talk about classic cars as investments, about the pleasure a classic car can bring and offer advice about buying at auction. More dealers and more trade stands are also promised.More information and ticket bookings can be accessed via the show website – www.thelondonclassiccarshow.co.uk
