Sunday saw us finally get to host a ‘physical’ Cars on the Campus with Covid restrictions being eased just in time!
The weather was kind to us and almost 200 Cars, Trucks, Bikes, Busses, Fire Engines, Ambulances, Police Cars, even Military Vehicles came to the Campus to celebrate all things Automotive with the Ayrshire Public.
With everyone assembled, Provost Barry Douglas was piped into the show in Kevin Parkin’s 1934 Austin Seven Ruby (older than the vast majority of our members at 87 years old and some would say running a damn sight better!)
With the show opened, the campus soon filled up and the entrants were encouraged to collect their commemorative glass and booklet.
Grateful thanks have to go to our wonderful sponsors and advertisers without whom the show simply could not go ahead.
They are all local businesses who continue to offer us their sponsorship despite the Covid pandemic and the challenges that has presented them with.
They are listed at the bottom of this post – Please give them your support!
There wasn’t the usual indoor display due to the remaining restrictions but Max Flemmich MBE and his Darvel Telephone Museum Display were on hand to inform & educate and there were various options covering food & drink
The ‘show winners’ were chosen by our judging team of Andrew Paterson, Lawrence Seditas, Kieron Dewar & Rachel and of course the Provost. Well done & thanks for your efforts. That’s not an easy task!
The Provost returned at 3:00pm to hand out the prizes with the trophies going to the following cars & their owners:
The Provost’s Award:
John Horsburgh – 1974 Triumph TR6
Ayrshire Classics Favourite Award:
Peter Little – 1999 Mini Cooper Sport
Cars on the Campus ‘Best in Show’ Award:
Craig McGibbon – 1972 Lancia Fulvia
The Hugh McLachlan Quaich:
There are a selection of photographs from the day below for your enjoyment and a video ‘walk round’ of the show so you can enjoy the cars again from the comfort of your armchair.
