Great day for the roof down or to get the bike out!

Supported by CMM


Sunday 26th June saw the 1st ever Gillingham & Shaftesbury Motoring Pageant roll into Dorset and what a show we had on one of the hottest days of the year so far!

The rumours of incredible vehicles in the area were proved true with some incredible vehicles on display including an AC Cobra, GT40, numerous Ferrari's, an XK120 and a brace of series 1 E Types on display.

An original 1969 Dodge Charge which was signed by John Schneider (Bo Duke) and painted as the General Lee was one of the show stars and a perfect ’67 Bullet Mustang also proved incredibly popular – the owner was driving to the coast and saw the show signs spending the entire day at the show!

Practical and modern classics were also prominent with the Dorset RS Owners Club featuring a fabulous display including RS Cosworths right through to the latest Focus. Other clubs to be commended include Three Counties, Triumph Sports Six, Salisbury and Shaftesbury, Bournemouth and District, Sunbeam Alpine and many more. Southern Classic Speedway brought several classic speedway bikes (many being former title winners and rode them into the arena).

Pre War also featured prominently as well as a brace of Stags and other practical classics.

Date for 2012 will be Sunday 24th June and with owners stating they will be back ‘with more cars and friends’ the show is set to grow and the organisers are confident of doubling the show size for next year. For more information visit the web site and you can email your details to be added to the mailing list to next year via the web site.

Jason Lunn, Director the show said:
'I and my fellow show director Helen Morton are thrilled with the show and its support; it's what the area has been waiting for. We’ve already agreed the date for next year and everyone wants to tell their friends. It's the best first show we could ever have hoped for! We'd like to thank all our visitors, entrants and our sponsors.'
