This is the first time in our 13 year history that Rolls Royce has been our marque feature. Sponsored by Rybrook Rolls Royce, the above is just one of some very special vehicles on display.
THE NOT TO BE MISSED DAY OUT on Sunday 17th July.
Here is a taster of what you will see.
The show now in its 13th year is one of the biggest car shows in the South West, with over 8,000 people attending last year. It is managed by a not-for-profit limited company, providing a fun day out for both the enthusiast and the family, whilst raising funds for charities supported by the Rotary clubs of Yeo Vale and Sherborne Castles. £20,000 was raised for charity last year, and the aim is to improve on this in 2016.
This 1916 McLaughlin Racer with the 1915 Harley Davidson racing motorcycle will be part of our very special vehicles display on the castle forecourt at Sherborne.
Owner Jamie Darch will also be bringing his 1925 Maxwell Sports Roadster.
On October 15th 1997 Andy Green went supersonic in Thrust SSC and set a new World Land Speed Record of 763.035 mph (1277.98 km/h). Twenty years on, that record remains unchallenged.
The team behind the BLOODHOUND Supersonic Car aims to change that and have formally announced the start of preparations for its first World Land Speed Record campaign.
BLOODHOUND SSC will be present at Sherborne Castle Classic and Supercars so you can try out the BLOODHOUND Driving Experience, and find out the latest news about the project.
The Telegraph, which embraces Goodwood and The London Motor Show in its car show support, has now included Sherborne Castle Classic and Supercars in its portfolio of motoring events.
We are delighted to have this recognition of the high-profile status of our Show and look forward to working with The Telegraph to bring even more benefits to visitors.
In addition to featuring us in their Saturday car supplement, they will be attending the event offering Goodie bags containing items of real interest for car enthusiasts, a copy of the Telegraph and our show guide. Watch out for them at the entrances.
Finding some really special exhibits for the castle forecourt display is Keith McGee’s challenge each year, and this this year he has found some really special exhibits for you.
This newly restored 1921 Oxford Sports, is owned by Peter Card who is our official Commentator for the day.
Entries to our Classic and Supercar event are 25% up on last year and here are some examples of the rally cars you can expect to see at Sherborne this year.
3VC is one of the works team of 4 rally cars that was campaigned by Triumph in Europe in 1962/63. This car competed in the Alpine, Tulip, Spa-Sofia-Liege and RAC Rallies, driven by John Sprinzel in 62 and by Vic Elford in 63. The car’s best result was 3rd in the 1963 Tulip Rally, although the engine and drivetrain came 2nd overall in the 1963 Geneva Rally whilst on loan to a Swiss privateer entrant.
Driven in the World Rally series by Brian Culcheth who will be at the show again this year
