The Show and Venue
The ‘Heritage Insurance Classics at the Castle’ show is now in its 12th year at the beautiful 16th Century Sherborne Castle. Under new ownership since 2014, with a ‘not-for-profit’ organising company formed by ‘Yeo Vale’ and ‘Sherborne Castles’ Rotary Clubs, this year the show will be raising funds for Cancer Research UK and local charities. More than 1,200 interesting and exciting cars are expected to be on display in the magnificent lakeside grounds of the Castle.
Lotus is the featured manufacturer this year with sponsorship by Westover Sports Cars Ltd of Poole who will be showing their current range of cars including the fabulous new Lotus Evora. The feature display will include historic Lotus sports and racing cars – famous for its Esprit, Elan, Europa and Elise sports cars and for the highly successful Team Lotus in Formula 1.
New for 2015 – A dedicated area for Hot Rods, Custom and American cars reflecting the growing private and club entries of recent years and we are also very excited to have the BLOODHOUND Supersonic car driving experience simulator at the show; visitors will try taking this car to 1000mph, a prize will be awarded to the lead driver on the day.
Altogether this premier Southern England Classics and Supercar show will display a mouth-watering array of cars from Vintage and Classic cars to Supercars including Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bugatti and many others. There will be race and rally cars, as well as a collection of dragsters, which fired-up, will produce awesome noise! Traditional at this event is the arrival of car tours in front of the Castle, 2015 will see the arrival of Lamborghinis and Aston Martins staged by prestige car dealer H R Owen of Pangbourne and Cheltenham. Again this year members of the on-line car club PistonHeads have organised a sports and super-car run to the Castle – some 30+ very exciting and exceptional cars are expected to take part. Sherborne based auctioneers Charterhouse will once more be staging their very popular ‘Classic Vehicle Auction’, more than 100 lots are expected for sale on the day
