World-class cars, family fun, and a Rev-Off to remember!

Date:

Clayesmore’s second Classic & Supercar Sunday showcased more than 450 stunning vehicles, from vintage classics to modern marvels

Show sponsors Harwoods brought along the brand new Aston Martin DB12

On Sunday 13th August, the sleepy Dorset villages around Blandford, Shaftesbury and beyond awoke to the sound of a phenomenal convoy of world class cars, all heading to exhibit at the Clayesmore Classic & Supercar Sunday event.
Over 450 of the finest, classiest, fastest and brightest cars ever made joined the exhibition; with private owners and car clubs coming from as far afield as Bristol and London (though there were of course some much more local!). One visitor commented that the supercars approaching the school on the A350 looked like a tube of smarties – every colour under the sun!
It wasn’t all brights though; the demure and classy were in town (village?) too! From 1920 Bentleys and Lagondas to a glorious array of Aston Martins from DB5s onwards, right up to the brand new DB12, thanks to event sponsor, Harwoods. This is probably the car that enthusiasts have in mind when they say ‘showstopper’!

The youngest drivers were put through their 4×4 paces

The cars weren’t just for the adults though; children were also put through their paces by the Mini Rovers team. The 100 metre square assault course set up for the youngest drivers was challenging and fun as they navigated the hills and markers to reach the finish. Thanks again to the Harwoods Group, the experience was free for everyone, and the little learners even earned a mini driving licence once they’d crossed the line!
The event billed two Rev Offs in the schedule, and they did not disappoint. Set outside the main house at Clayesmore, the backdrop was perfect for the competing cars to line up for the exciting showdown of noise and muscle! Crowds flocked to watch and the atmosphere was electric as they took turns to try and break the decibel record.
After all that excitement, the rock music from the Replicas, along with gourmet burgers, woodfired pizza (plus gelato and crepes to die for), were the perfect vibe for the rest of the afternoon! Happy faces everywhere. Can we do it all again next Sunday please?! Roll on August 2024 …
