Right now, your car is spending the snuggest winter of its life at Windrush classic car storage. But it’s never too soon to start looking ahead to warmer weather and planning your itinerary of motoring events for 2023. With the fallout from Covid now mercifully in our rear-view mirror, the show calendar has bounced back stronger than we could have hoped – here are eight firm favourites from our long-term car storage team.
January 8th (and throughout the year)
The perfect way to blow away the new year cobwebs, Bicester’s regular Scramble events get off to a flying start on January 8th, inviting you to bring along your pre-1990 vehicle, warm your hands around a coffee, then stroll the 444-acre grounds admiring the wares of fellow enthusiasts and dropping in on artisan workshops. Keep your eyes on the website for further Scrambles for 2023 as they’re announced.
British Grand Prix
Everyone should experience Formula 1 on home turf at least once in their lives, and the 2023 British Grand Prix is this summer’s hottest ticket. The nail-biting track action spills over into a weekend-long family festival including a fairground, BMX stunt displays, live music and – for those who aren’t racing in the morning – the legendary Mahiki After Parties with tunes spun by top DJs.
Goodwood Festival Of Speed
Visiting the London Concours feels like stumbling across a pastoral English garden party in the heart of the Smoke. The 2023 lineup might be the best yet, including 60 years of Lamborghini, a celebration of the Porsche 911 RS, Roadgoing Race Cars, Les Grands Tourisme, Evolution of Aero, Automotive Haute Couture, Peak Sports Car, The Cars That Built Land Rover and Supercar Day.
Festival Of The Unexceptional
Hagerty’s beloved Festival Of The Unexceptional salutes the cars from the ’60s to ’90s that slipped between the cracks of conventional beauty. Regular as clockwork, the 2023 event will return to its spiritual home of Grimsthorpe Castle in Lincolnshire, and this celebration of all things leftfield, unloved, mediocre and maligned is sure to bring out the crowds.
30th August – 3rd September
Blenheim Palace is the destination for late summer, with events spanning from the hotly contested Club Trophy to the extravagent headwear of Ladies Day, plus the flagship Salon Privé Concours D’Elégance that showcases everything from modern exotica right back to treasures from the Edwardian era. You can even literally buy a helicopter in the Shopping Village.
Concours Of Elegance
This year’s event at Hampton Court Palace promises sixty pristine vehicles from around the world (many never seen before in the UK), while a new flagship feature is the first-century celebration of Le Mans, complete with venerable former race-winners including a 1969 Porsche 917 K and Bentley Speed Six ‘Old Number One’.
There’s nothing quite like the Revival. Come September, the most playful date in the motoring calendar winds back the pocketwatch as packs of period-dressed partygoers descend on Goodwood Estate to watch an olde-world fleet fight it out on the famous circuit, before drinking and dancing until late.
