Rev Up Your Vacation!

Automobile junkies all over the world come together every year during car shows and festivals to meet other like-minded people and check out some of the most stunning new cars of the year. Automobile events are one of the best ways to get up close with some incredible cars and bikes and even take them for a test drive. From getting the first look at new releases to rediscovering old classics and watching and cheering as some of the world’s best racers take to the track; whether the love of your life is classic cars, supercars, concept cars, motorbikes, or motorsport; automobile shows are the hottest place to be for anyone who loves the rev of engines and the sleek designs of cars and bikes. If you’re one of those petrolheads, we have for you three amazing upcoming automobile events that you absolutely have to check out this year!

CarFest South
Chris Evans might be world-famous for his almost-perfect role as Captain America, but what not everyone knows about him is that he has a love that’s very close to Batman’s. The CarFest North and South are all-encompassing car shows that occur in two locations in England and the proud brainchild of Chris Evans. While CarFest North happens every year in Cheshire and occurred from July 26 to 28, the CarFest South that is held in Hampshire is still possible for you to attend.

The event will be held from August 23 to 25 in Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire and is known to be one of the biggest ever village fetes. The festival this year has a range of activities including two paddocks filled with a great range of cars and track races and celebrity go-karting. With four exciting new ‘worlds’ to explore – Kids Kingdom, Eden, Vintage Carfest, and Car-Feast; the event is bound to be fun for the  entire family!

Frankfurt Motor Show
Among the largest and most anticipated automobile events in the world, The Frankfut Motor Show displays some of the latest models from companies that are renowned worldwide, like Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Honda, Hyundai, Ford, and Lamborghini. Organized by the Verband der Automobilindustrie (VDA – Association of the German Automotive Industry), the show takes place in Frankfurt, Germany and occupies twelve buildings.

The automobile show will be held from September 12 to 22 and is going to include a range of new vehicles and several stunning new concept cars as well. Germany is known for its leading innovation in the automobile industry and the sheer perfection of their machines so it’s only natural to expect an absolutely splendid exhibition. Although this event doesn’t hold much of interest for those who don’t love cars, it is almost like the Mecca of the automobile enthusiast community and if you’re one of those people who can’t help but admire the beauty of a well-designed car, then you should be there too!

Classic Motor Show
The Classic Motor Show 2019 is the 35th anniversary celebration of the well-known car show and is bound to be stellar! The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery, is one event that absolutely any classic car owner, collector, enthusiast, car club member, or anyone with a passion for classic cars can possibly miss. The event takes place in Birmingham across seven halls and brings together around 300 car and motorcycle clubs, culminating in a showcase of over 3000 iconic classic cars and motorbikes.

The show is all set to take place on the second weekend of November, from 8 to 10 and will be a great opportunity to shop from one of the UK’s largest indoor autojumble and specialist traders that can source parts and tools for maintenance and restoration. You could also test drive or buy your very own classic cars from the wide range of dealers, witness some of the most extravagant auctions, and listen to some interesting talks from famous motoring celebrities. If all of that isn’t reason enough for you to go grab a ticket right now, we don’t know what is!       - Tanya
