This show has grown steadily over the years with a myriad of beautiful and rare cars attending, organised in association with Classic & Sportscar Magazine, it runs in conjunction with the 16th Thatcham Festival. The Festival is a showcase of the range of activities that are available and the talents of Thatcham residents. Whetheryou are interested in sport, music, dance, theatre, history, craft or gardening, you will almost certainly find something to interest you. It runs throughout October, see details here:
This year probably the rarest car there was a 1929 Chenard et Walcker Type Y6 Berline More info here powered by a 1496cc side valve engine, manufactured in Gennevilliers, France, only 5 cars are known in the UK and just as rare in France, and with the optional boot box even rarer, the makers had association with Rosengart, Delahaye (has their wheel centres) and Citroen, its even fitted with a very rare Delage clock still telling the time after all these years, the company was eventually taken over by Peugeot.
Towards the other end of history was KIT:
From Knight Rider fame, not one but two KIT's came along not only talking to everyone and the ever memorable music playing but even with David Hasselhoff peering from through the windscreen.
These superb Firebirds are available for hire from Berkshire Car Hire, so you can experience that retro 80's futuristic super car. Watch out for more about these car from Kennet Valley TR Group as they have been invited along to a future club night to give a talk.
