Stylish dress and classic cars for Shelsley Walsh

 Period dress will be the order of the day when the Midland Automobile Club hosts its Classic Nostalgia weekend later this month.

The stylish event is being staged at the club’s Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb in Worcestershire on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July and will feature a full entry list and wide range of classic and sports cars from over the years.

Club organiser Andrew Davis said: “This promises to be a great family weekend with something for everybody to enjoy in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside and the atmosphere should be truly vintage as we are asking everybody to dress in 1950s and 1960s style for the occasion.

“There will be prizes for the best dressed lady and gentleman in costume, a rock band on Saturday evening and a Jazz band playing on Sunday, as well as a host of other period attractions over the weekend.

“Famous names such as Riley, Austin, Triumph and Allard will be in the paddock and competing on the hill, while the car parks will host an even wider range of cars, with displays by clubs including AC Cobra, Austin 7, MG, Sunbeam, Dellow and Alfa Romeo.

“This year sees the 50th anniversary of the iconic MGB and the MG Car Club is staging a round of its Speed Championship at Shelsey Walsh on the Saturday, while the Bugatti Owners Club, Paul Matty Classic Championship contenders will also be taking part alongside period single seater racing cars, all in all making for a truly classic occasion.”

Over 100 cars from over the years will take part in the Concours de Elegance competition on the Sunday, sponsored by Classic & Sportscar Magazine and to be judged by renowned motoring journalist Simon Taylor, himself a regular competitor at Shelsley Walsh in his Stovebolt Special.
