Annual Classic Car and Bike show at Timour Hall
The Classic Car and Bike Show has been hosted annually by the International Police Association for 10 successful years, as a means of fundraising for their various charitable programs and is held at beautiful 19th century Mansion, Timour Hall Villa. Although the first show featured only a handful of clubs, the event has grown steadily in popularity with exhibitors and members of the public. In 2006, it was decided to expand the event from a single day into a two day event to include modern and future Classics on the Saturday with Vintage and Classics remaining on the Sunday. This decision allowed the inclusion of more clubs and increased the field of interest to attract the younger generation. Since the purpose of this Classic car show is to raise funds, the ability to help others grows with the show, with funds being donated annually to a deserving charity cause.
The public pays a very affordable R20 admission with children under 12 free and tickets are available at the gate both days or from Computicket! The show is open to the public from 10am – 4pm. Note that none of the vehicles from the Saturday display will appear on the Sunday display, so do come both days. Bring the Family! The organisers strive to make this a day that can be enjoyed by the whole family and there here will be plenty of refreshments available, with a number of food stalls to tickle the taste buds, cool drinks to banish thirst and the popular, shaded beer garden.
Saturday 19 January will features Modern Classics
On day one of the Show, the exhibition will consist of vehicles which can be defined as ‘Modern Classics”. These include Hot Rods, Street Rods, souped up vehicles, racing cars and bikes, custom vehicles and motorcycles and this year a selection of cute and loveable old school Minis! This is a day that will appeal to many motoring enthusiasts.
Sunday 20 January features Vintage, Veteran and Classics.
On day two of the Show, the exhibition will consist of vehicles dating back to the late 1890’s, to classics that were loved in our youth. These are the classics that invoke an era of elegance, a more relaxed way of life and a time when craftsmanship was an important element of vehicle design and manufacture. This is always a popular display and will appeal to anyone with a love of restored and maintained classic vehicles.
The venue is at the bottom of Timour Hall Rd, off Gabriel Rd in Plumstead. For maps, please see the venue website at www.timourhall.com . Check out info on the charity aims for 2013 on their website www.classiccarandbikeshow.co.za
