The biggest motoring event in Cumbria will be back with a bang this summer!

The Cumbria Classic Weekend is on August 21st/22nd with the Rose and Thistle Challenge Tour on the Saturday starting in Carlisle, heading into the Borders and finishing near Penrith on the Saturday. It’s open to all vintage, historic and classic cars.

On the Sunday, the Hagerty supported Cumbria Classic & Motorsport Show takes place at Dalemain near Penrith, just a couple of miles from Junction 40 of the M6. This is probably one of the most picturesque show venues in the UK with added attraction of the Dalemain Mansion and famous gardens as well. The last running of the Show in 2019 saw some 800 cars entered and demand for places is already high as most people missed out on shows last year.

Featured marques this year are: MG with three specific classes based on age, AC Cobra and Toyota.

As well as the cars there will be the usual trade and autojumble stands, club displays, arena action and the famous autotests.
