With over 335 cars, buses, motorbikes,bicycles and even a helicopter registered, it will be a show not to be missed!
Highlights will include a Maserati 250s sports racing car and a Lotus 18 GP car, both with fantastic racing histories, with the Lotus having been reunited with Stirling Moss at the Goodwood Festival ofSpeed only this year.
To find out more about them, you must come along to Audlem Playing Field this Sunday. The parade will begin in Hankelow at midday (which is half an hour earlier than in previous years).
