This year’s Vintage Sports Car Club “Cars in the Park” was again a great success, held on a beautiful sunny day, at the Gold Circle Training Centre in Ashburton Pietermaritzburg.

 

This premier car show in KZN is very well supported by vehicle enthusiast from all over South Africa. Clubs from far and wide travel long distances to attend this fantastic day. The vehicles on display ranged from 1908 vintage, veteran, classics to current 2016 super cars, as well as bikes of all shapes and sizes.

 

Vehicles on display included Peugeots, VWs, Mercedes, Porsches, BMWs, Bentleys, Rolls-Royce, Citroens, Jaguars, Land Rovers, Chevrolets, Audis, Lotus, Cobras and many other makes, as well as modified and special vehicles.

 

There were +- 1 500 exhibitor’s displaying their cars, bikes and machines, and a total of +- 14 500 people attended the event.

 

The +- 80 vendor’s stalls made up of +- 32 food vendors and +- 48 flea and business traders had a good day, and the charities that are supported by the Vintage Sports Car Club will benefit greatly. With the huge variety of food no-one went hungry. Due to the warm weather the beer garden and ice cream sales did exceptionally well. The flea markets were a great attraction for the ladies, and the kid’s entertainment area kept the youngsters very busy.

 

Having a Family Fun Day, with all the vehicles, the beer garden, live band, kids play area, flea markets, radio controlled model plane and car display have all helped to attract many spectators, and make this a must attend event on the annual motoring calendar.

 

The floating trophy for the best overall stand went to the Land Rover Club with over 60 Land Rovers of all ages on display.

 

The trophy for the best individual display went to UKZN for their amazing pedal car.
