The theme of the 35th anniversary Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, has been revealed as 'Top Trumps', the iconic card game that has been played across the world for over 40 years and is now more popular than ever!
The TR Register will be putting on one its largest ever displays at the show to conclude a year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the TR6 and will be announcing the star cars between now and November. TR6s on display will represent newly restored, historically significant and motorsport examples of the breed alongside archives and imagery from the TR6s development.
As part of the show theme, the clubs and exhibitors will have the opportunity to create a 'Top Trumps' card to act as the vehicle's info board displaying five key facts. Not only will this create the biggest pack of Top Trumps ever but will also give visitors a potential 15,000 motoring facts presented in a fun way so they can play as they enjoy their visit to the UK's biggest indoor motoring event.
Plus, to celebrate Lancaster Insurance also reaching its 35th year, the insurance specialist is creating a special edition pack of Top Trumps that will be launched at the three-day show, held at Birmingham's NEC from 8-10 November. The pack will include 30 cards, each featuring a carefully selected classic car that reflects the 3,000 vehicles on display at the show.
Show Director Lee Masters explains:
"Top Trumps has been on our wish list of show themes for years, but we were saving it for a special occasion and sharing our 35thanniversary with Lancaster Insurance is the perfect opportunity. It is a game many in our community would have played as a kid and may have passed on to their own children. We're hoping everyone involved in the show, but especially the vehicle clubs will be just as excited as we are."
For those who have forgotten how to play here is a quick recap: Each Top Trumps card contains a list of numerical data. The aim of the game is to compare these values to try to trump your opponent by having a higher number, so you win their card. The winner is the player with all the cards at the end.
