After missing a couple of years (akin to most shows) it was great to see Bridge of Allan appear as a destination weekend in the calendar.
This was a show, run by the Stirling & District Classic Car Club, that I hadn’t attended before but had heard only good things about.
I headed up the M80 for the hour trip in the MR2 (the MGB is still in bits….) and joined the queue for entry which was expertly managed by the volunteer stewards and parked up on the show ground. The grass was well marked out and there was plenty of room between the cars. Thankfully the weather was with us so no issues with ‘soft ground’.
With circa 600 vehicles booked in, various auto jumble stands and some inflatable entertainment for the younger visitors (not to mention the food stalls) there was genuinely something for everyone.
After exploring and videoing what was on display on the day, I enjoyed the sunshine and the chat with the owners and chilled with the family who had also come up.
I treated myself to nice piece of automobilia from one of the stalls and have to confess to a few ice creams as well. There was a great variety of clubs displaying and a few familiar faces as well as some owners and cars we don’t often see in the Central West.
I’d suggest that at just over an hour away, this is a show we should consider attending as a club next year. Have a look through the photos & video and see if you agree!
All the best,
