Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Car show revs up visitors to the coast


Sep 9, 2016

classic car showNow in its third year, the event organised by North Tyneside Council will feature over 300 cars from mid-1930’s classics to more recent models – and their owners will be on hand to talk about each car’s history. 

There is a huge range of makes and models signed up to attend including Corvette, Jaguar, Mercedes, MG, Triumph, Mini and many more.

Cllr Eddie Darke, cabinet member for Culture, Leisure and Tourism said: “This event is now well and truly established and is a great, informal gathering of enthusiasts on the coast all happy to spend time talking to visitors about their labour of love.

“We really appreciate the support of the car owners every year and I hope everyone enjoys their visit to Whitley Bay.” 

An Infiniti Newcastle display will feature a hugely popular Renault Sport F1 car and as it is Nissan Washington’s 30th anniversary this year, visitors can see an early Micra, Bluebird and production Qashqai.

Vintage buses will be on hand to give visitors a short trip along the coast while others will park up to allow people to see onboard. 

There will be live jazz music from The Vieux Carre Jazzmen, refreshments and small fairground rides for children.

The event, supported by Whitley Bay Chamber of Trade, Infiniti Newcastle, Wingrove and CO-OP, runs between 10am and 3pm and admission is free.
