It's the Audlem Festival of Transport on 29th July this year.
2012 is the 30th, 50th and 60th Birthday of a number of iconic classic cars:
- Celebrating 60 years is Austin Healey
- Celebrating 50 years is MGB and Triumph Spitfire
- Celebrating 50 years the Ango — American A.C. Cobra
- Celebrating 30 years, and created locally, the Bentley Mulsanne Turbo
As it is Jubilee year, it would be nice if we could have a Red, White and Blue MGB in the parade and similarly for Triumph Spitfire.
It is possibly asking a bit much for Red, White and Blue Cobras and Bentleys but just one of each would be fabulous.
I would like to make an appeal via Audlem Online to owners to come forward. Entry forms are available from ASET or on their website — click on the link below the photos.
The Audlem Festival of Transport is already a fabulous free event — let's make it even better!
