Retro Show 2016 Highlights Video


Retro Show 2016 Report

The Retro Show 2016 was a great success with a plethora of vintage vehicles on display both on and off the track. The rain and hail bought play to a close early on the Saturday but this was not the case on Sunday with the glorious sun shine beating down on the complete show for all things retro!

The Show & Shine paddock was full to the rafters with pristine show cars from a bygone era! As always the judges’ decisions were made very difficult due to the high quality vehicles on display.
