CITROEN Classics ‘Show What You Bring’

Given the limited time now before the event, we have decided that the Classics display will have a ‘Show What You Bring’ format. We hope for a wide and eclectic range to be on display each day. If you are planning to bring a rather special classic Citroen car or van, then please let us know in advance and we’ll try to reserve a space.

 

The CITROEN Classics 'Show What You Bring' area has about 50 show spaces and is open from 10:00 - 16:00 on Saturday and Sunday. If you want your car or van to go on show, bring it to the display area as early as you can. Look for the display marshal.

CITROEN Classic 2CV 24 Hour Race

The CITROEN Weekend will feature 31st running of the CITROEN Classic 2CV 24 Hour Race. This is the UK’s longest running twice-round-the-clock motor race. A grid of over 30 cars, mainly CITROEN 2CV’s with some Classic MINI Grand cars, will try to go as fast as they can while staying out of trouble in the hope of being on the podium at the finish.

Each car has 3 or 4 drivers, of all ages and levels of experience. Some of them were in the first ever 2CV 24 Hour race. Others may have just passed their ARDS tests. The 2CV’s stop every two hours or so to take on fuel, change drivers and deal with any problems.
