Whatever your passion, from Race and Rally cars to Hot Rods and Customs, or the Classic and Sportscar Tour which ended at the event, Classics at the Castle 2013 had something for everyone.
The two show fields at Sherborne Castle were filled to bursting point with a huge variety of classics, over thirty motor club stands, trade stands, an autojumble and crafts fair. A record 1,200 cars attended from early veterans to the latest supercars.
There was so much going on at Classics at the Castle in 2013, so we have tried to capture just a bit of the flavour of this great family day out.
From special displays to custom cars, autojumble to club displays, jazz bands and good food, this event really did offer a great day out for everyone. Need a reminder? Just take a look at this photo archive and remember!

One of the premier Classics and Supercar shows in the South of England – The Heritage Insurance Classics at the Castle at Sherborne Castle, Dorset – enters a new phase in 2014.
Founder Keith McGee of Merlin Events has transferred ownership of the show to a new organisation, “Classics at the Castle” which is a not-for-profit company. The Company has been created to organise this popular and successful event so that in future all surplus funds will be transferred to the Rotary Clubs of Yeo Vale and Sherborne Castles to donate to charities.
“I am delighted with this new arrangement” said Keith. “As Professional Advisor to the new owners I will continue to be closely involved with the design, development and delivery of the show, as will Show Secretary, Stuart Annett. We are committed to maintaining the high standards and to further extending the scope and spectacular nature of this event. Attendees will be largely unaware that any organisational change has taken place.”
Nigel Young and John Smithee, Presidents, respectively, of the two Rotary Clubs involved, say they are looking forward to working with Keith and Stuart to maintain and enhance the show and thereby raise funds for chosen Charities. “We look forward to seeing again all loyal past and future supporters at the stunning lakeside setting of Sherborne Castle on Sunday 20th July 2014.
A fantastic day of events and displays including motor club stands, motor trade stands, autojumble, craft fair and a quality classic and supercar auction as well fun activities for the whole family.

Charterhouse will again be running a fabulous auction for both Classic Cars and Supercars.
Charterhouse auctioneers and valuers have been involved with classic cars, motorcycles and automobilia since 1999 with the first specialist auction being conducted in 2000.
Charterhouse had the pleasure of conducting the first classic car auction in the beautiful Castle grounds in 2009, which was very successful. Since then each subsequent auction has been built upon with hundreds of classic cars and motorcycles being sold – with a top price achieved by an Aston Martin DB6 restoration project for a not inconsiderable £150,000.
Charterhouse hold a program of specialist classic car and motorcycle auctions throughout the year at national events such as the Netley Marsh Autojumble in September and the Bristol classic car show in June. Both these events and Classics & Supercars at Sherborne Castle are attended by thousands of potential buyers, which is a unique selling point for Charterhouse’s clients. Having achieved some excellent results for their vendors at Sherborne Castle, they look forward to holding more successful auctions in the future.
